Travelling with the kids
these are some lucky kids getting to travel with you on your honeymoon! I am going to guess that you are travelling into Florence by train - so you probably won't have a car in Tuscany. Which is OK, there is still lots you can do without a car.
If you are interested in any Museums, be sure to book ahead - - but after Pompeii and Naples AND a train ride, you might just enjoy roaming the city streets and taking in the markets, the sights, the sounds and the gelato. There is plenty to see without setting foot into a museum or church.
Have a look at this three day itin for Tuscany. It doesn't include Pisa but it does include many of the highlights. Pisa is a beautiful place to visit - however once you have seen the tower you have pretty much seen most of Pisa and having said this you might enjoy your time more at other places. For example, if you have any "Twilight" fans in the group they might like Volterra more than Lucca - just an idea.
