We're thinking of taking the family to Italy next summer. I'm thinking of spending a week in Rome and an additional week in other places.

Can anyone on this board offer suggestions on how to approach planning this trip? Must see places? Pompeii is on my list.

I would like to see the tourist attractions in Rome and then head south, or while staying in Rome, branch out to other areas within suitable distance for day trips.

I'm not a big traveler and this trip would be a once-in-a-lifetime as we plan on taking our mothers (ages 78 and 84, both in excellent health) with us as well as our kids (15 and 12).
