we are planning our trip to Italy for may 2010, family of 4. So far we plan to go to venice from paris and then drive down to Lucca. Stay there for a week to do day trips other area ieL Pisa and Florence. Then drive down to Rome. Is Lucca a good area to base ourselves for a week? Do we need to pre-book tours before we get there? Can anyone recommend good family accommodation in Venice, Rome and the Lucca area please.
