Families with teens who want to get out and explore (and find the perfect backdrop for their photos) should give this two-week itinerary through the Veneto and Tuscany a try. You'll start in Venice, where you can explore secret passages, craft your own masks, and paddle a gondola. Then head to Verona and Lake Garda, biking through both urban and natural attractions. Wrap up in the Tuscan cities of Siena and Florence with a hot air balloon ride, gelato-making, and more.
Next, continue to Pordoi Pass, which sits above 7,000 feet (2,239 m) between the Sella and Marmolada peaks. To reach high into the mountains, you’ll take a panoramic funicular ride up to more than 10,000 feet (3,000 m). Enjoy the incredible views over the Dolomites as you inch up into the alpine landscape. You’ll have some free time to walk around and admire the unique scenery before savoring lunch at a typical mountain refuge and returning to Verona.
