Q | Is Umbria a good location for a weeklong family stay?
I am planning a summer 2011 trip to Italy for my family of six (two adults and kids 18, 16, 13, 10). My husband and I would like to give them a taste of the Italian lifestyle and visit the historical sites as well. We love Siena but we are not sure a week there with four kids would be convenient to the sites we want to see throughout Italy. I do love the idea of coming home to a quiet villa with a pool and relaxing and taking in the italian countryside after a day of sightseeing. Does a week long rental in Umbria sound like a good idea for 6 people - including 3 teenagers? -MaryJo, Pennsylvania
