We will be traveling to Rome for my husbands 40th birthday in August along with our 3 and 8 year olds. We already have a cruise out of Rome that will take us to Spain, but we would like to spend 5 days somewhere else prior to the cruise. We have been to Rome before and will spend 2 nights after our cruise there, so we are hoping to venture somewhere else. We would love either coastal or Lakeside town/ city that is kid friendly, good food and relaxing and around 2-3 hours or so from Rome. I've been doing lots of research, but feel like I'm getting so confused. Would love any advice you have on where we should go for 5 days!
