Any experience with the town Montorio al Vomano?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a 16 day trip to Italy in November - his first and my second. We just learned that his ailing grandmother grew up in the town of Montorio al Vomano (she's always said "just outside of Rome") so I'd love to be able to fit in a visit.

The trouble is that our trip is booked, for the most part. We'll be staying at La Foce, south of Siena, in southeast Tuscany for one week with a rental car, then dropping the car in Rome and staying for 3 nights there, without a car, before flying back. The town looks to be 3 hours from La Foce according to Google Maps - any idea how accurate that is? Is this something we could do as a day trip? Looks shorter from Rome but we'd be eating up one of our precious few days and we'd be taking public transportation if we went that route.

Any first-hand experience with the area? Think snow will be a threat in mid-November? Thanks for any tips to pull this off!
