We are planning on traveling to Italy for 10 days (9 nights, not including the flight there) over Easter week 2014, returning home the night before Easter. We are still in the early planning stages, but I would very much appreciate any feedback on these early thoughts. We have 3 kids - from age 6 to age 11 - and while they are used to traveling with us, we'll be fairly low key in our activities each day. Our current thought is to fly into Rome, spend 3 nights there, and then take the train to Florence. Spend 4 nights in Florence (taking day trips to Pisa, etc.) and then train it to Venice and spend the last 2 nights there. We'll fly back to NYC from Venice to make it easier.
Immediate thoughts on this (extremely basic) itinerary? Any feedback on how crazy it will be Easter week?
Many thanks for any feedback!
