We are planning a family trip to Italy this summer (kids ages 12,14 and 17). I just started to plan our itinerary and would appreciate any feedback. Since we are flying on mileage we will be landing in Geneva and driving to Italy. The plan is to rent a car in Geneva and return it in Rome. From what I have researched, even with the steep drop-off fee, it’s still cheaper than any other form of transportation for a family of five. Here’s the itinerary I have so far -
Day 1 – Driving from Lugano to Milan and spending the night around Lake Garda.
Day 3- Venice to Pescare. 1 night in Pescara.
Day 4- Pescara to Lecce. 1 night in Lecce.
Day 5- Lecce to Basilicata. 1 night in Salerno.
Day 6 – Amalfi coast and Capri. 1 night in Sorrento.
Day 7 - Naples and Sienna. 1 night in San Gimignano.
Day 8 – Florence. 2 nights.
Day 10 – Bologna. 1 night in Asti.
Day 11 – Genoa. 2 nights in Levanto (visiting cinque terr)
Day 13 – Pisa and Rome. 3 days in Rome.
Thank you for your feedback.
