Italy in January---Please Help!!!!

I am planning a trip to Venice, Florence, and Rome for early January 2015. I am restricted on travel dates as I am in school and work full time. However, I am taking my mom and a few friends are also going with us. I don't want them to be miserable because of the weather. We live in DC, so are used to all sorts of seasons. Suggestions/Advice??

I have been in Rome and Florence in Feb. Florence in Feb was n ot mcuh idffernt than Rome in termperature. Only been to Vencie in April.

Italy as far south as Rome and further south is not all that cold in the winter. It's not Bikini weather but it's really moderate

Pictures to show Winter temp in Bay of Naples/Rome Foilage and clothing in picts show that it is not like visiting Jamaica, but it's pretty moderate. Maybe it's just me though coming from the Great Frozen American Heartland?

Average high/l;ow for end of Dec in Rome is 10/3 (deg C) or 51/38 deg F
