My wife and I basically did the exact same trip you scheduled in reverse for 24 days. We stayed in Cinque Terre for 5 days and Tuscany for 5 days. Rome 4, Lake Cuomo 3, the rest was a blurrrrrrr.......
Fantastic trip, lots of great memories. We visited in late September thru early October and the weather was perfect. Do as much homework as you can regarding site-seeing as there are so many things to see you can wear yourself out trying to fit it all in.

I spent 10 days in Florence - it is a GREAT city to walk (watch for pick-pockets though).
Aside from what everyone else has mentioned thus far (e.g., Il Duomo) - there is a fantastic restaurant called "Alle Murate" (Via Ghibellina, 52-red, Florence, Italy). It is primarily seafood, but it is fantastic!!
With your daughters in hand (beyond going to the Uffizi and / or the Galleria dell'Accademia for The David), if you have time, you should go to the Basilica of Santa Croce. It is the burial place of Michelangelo, Galileo, Marconi, etc. - Galileo and Michelangelo's tombs are on the walls!Going to trial with a lawyer who considers your whole life-style a Crime in Progress is not a happy prospect. -

Florence has a wicked Ferrari store (literally right around the corner from Il Duomo on the same street as the Hotel California)... if you can't get to Maranello.
I just found out today that the Maranello factory tour is by appointment only

A quick thank you to all who took the time to respond. The suggestions are much appreciated, and will help make the trip even better.“I’m sorry, but having an Aston Martin DB9 on the drive and not driving it is a bit like having Keira Knightley in your bed and sleeping on the couch. If you’ve got even half a scrotum it’s not going to happen.” - Jeremy Clarkson

sounds like a graet trip. you guys will love it.
know most of the places, it's not so far form munich.
if you go to the panerai store Plazza S. Giovanni, 16R (PALAZZO ARICIVESCOVILE) ask if you could get a look to the museum level. it's a smal place like the store on 2nd floor.
close to Florance (Firence) is mugello, one of ferraris tracks: they have a Ferrari hotel in Borgo S. Lorenzo the Ripaverde. i've stayed there during a driver training.
just ask for anything else.
enjoy your trip,

Has anyone here done the Ferrari factory tour? it think it is about time I did it. Can anyone post their experiences as well as pictures? any additional information would be great even if it is about any other part of the country of Italy.
