7 Days in Umbria, 4 in Rome, 2 Days ????

Jump to last reply

After 4 years we are finally returning to Italy. As usual we waited until almost the last minute to decide on a destination. Our schedule is based around a seven day stay at Castello Izzalini in Todi, which we booked through RCI to save some money. They had only one check-in date, so everything will resolve around that August 31st to September 7th stay.

We then figured 4 days would be OK in Rome (where ever we go we like to rent a car, drive around the countryside and explore the hill towns more than stay in a city, but neither my wife nor I have been to Rome before. In Rome we will be staying at the Relais Rome Sweet Relais Fori Imperiali, in Monti. I read an interesting article about Monti that caught my fancy and just decided to book here - with us, sometimes we just need to do something definitive so the vacation doesn't disappear in just talking about it. Anyway, if anyone has stayed either in the Monti area or in the Relais, I would greatly appreciate hearing about it

That was going to be the vacation, but when I went to look at airline tickets it turned out that the difference between flying on Wednesday as opposed to Friday will save us more than $500. So we now have two more days!

I think we'd like to spend them somewhere in the area between Rome and Todi. Any recommendations? From what little I've read so far, it looks like we could just drive anywhere and enjoy - on-the-other-hand it would be helpful to at least know which road to take out of the airport.

I'll continue to read the guide books and the great trip reports here and come back with some specifics when I know enough to have a question. If there are any "do not miss" places or restaurants I should look into, please feel free to share.
