I'm taking my niece to Italy for 9 days at Christmas/New Years. She's 19 and never been to Europe. I need help deciding where to take her so that she experiences the awesome historical sites AND gets a feel for real Italian culture.
We're spending 3 days in Rome but I'm torn between heading north to Tuscany or south to the Pompeii/Positano/Capri. I also want to factor in some down time to just stroll and explore. I hate trying to fit in as much as possible and feeling rushed. We fly in 12/26 and out 1/5.
Thanks for the help!
