My family of six (4 kids) are planning a month stay in Italy, May-June of 2024. We do not want this to be a rushed “everyday see a new site” type of trip, so I’m trying to give us some time in each area knowing we’ll be busier in Rome, then slow down in Umbria, busier (walking) in cinque terre, then slow down in Tuscany, etc.
Our rough plan is to stay 4 nights in Rome, 5 nights in Umbria, 3 nights in Cinque Terre, 11 nights in Tuscany/Emilia Romagna (havent figure this out), 2 nights in Venice, 5 nights in Dolomites
I welcome feedback on this schedule, but my real question is transportation. I initially thought we would rent a vehicle for the Tuscany/Emilia R. time through the Dolomites, but I am realizing to rent something that will fit the 6 of us is crazy expensive and hard to find. Sooo - I’m looking for towns in Umbria, Tuscany and Emilia Rom. that are quaint and have good rental options, but are within walking distance to public transportation.
