I'm gonna spend one week there.
Please recommend some scenic spots,thanks.
Many things, depends on what you are looking for. I suggest to check out http://selectitaly.com and get a custom trip package.
Let me know what you want to do and maybe I can help.
I wanna take my family to relax, including four adults, two of which are seniors. So we don't want to have a tight schedule. Can you recommend me some cities, attractions, hotels and restaurants so I can arrange my trip itinerary. Thanks!
If the trip is just one week, then I would just visit two cities -- Rome and Venice, and I would take the family to the major attractions, because they'll want to see Rome's Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Forum, the Vatican, Castel d'Angelo, etc. In Venice, they'll want to see the canals, St. Mark's Cathedral, the Doge's Palace, etc. These attractions can all get, but the reason they can all get crowded is because they really are spectacular. Rome should be the longer stay. Also, in both these cities it's important to sit down in popular piazzas (e.g. Navonna in Rome), rest your eyes from all the art, and just look at the people.
thank you so much
Honglin there are different trips you can do depending on what you family likes.
We offer different types of wine tasting and cooking classes which might be fun to do all together.
Also I will suggest to visit somewhere a little cooler such as tuscany, umbria or piedmont.
We offer different trips there which you can check out on our website. Remember we also do custom trip which it might be good for you.
It depends on your likes and dislikes. I agree with seeing Venice and Rome - if you had a couple of extra days I would also suggest Florence too or even a day trip from Rome to Pompeii.
Main things to see in Rome - Coliseum, Vatican, Forum, Spanish Steps. You can use the Hop on Hop Off buses for some of these but I highly suggest buying tickets in advance - and make sure you buy "Skip the Line" entrance. Many of us sell the excursions separately.
In Venice, Ed hot on the top sights to see. You don't really need more than 2 days in Venice.
Good luck planning - I am sure you'll have a wonderful time.
thank you so much
Are there any reliable agencies ? I'm in China, I wanna buy some tickets through the Internet.

When are you planning to travel? And how old/mobile are the seniors? A tour that involves a lot of walking may be difficult, depending on the ages. Venice is amazing, and one of my favorite spots. But usually requires a bit of walking. Checking out elevator availability at your hotels may be important as well.
If you are traveling during high season, pre-purchasing tickets to venues such as the Doge's Palace in Venice is important, unless you are all up for waiting in long line to get in.
We just returned from our first trip to Italy - it was amazing. You must see the Pantheon and have Italian Gelato. The Coliseum is also a must-do - we used Walks of Italy tours and they were fantastic - small groups, great tours. You should also see the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica - stunning artwork & treasures. I invite you to come and read some of my travel articles on my website, we will be adding articles about Rome, Positano, Capri and Venice soon. http://www.newjetsetters.com. We also have some great travel info on our Facebook Page, http://www.facebook.com/newjetsetters.
Venice, Milan, Florence, Napoli, and Rom are a must. Or are you looking for something less touristic?
