Contemplating Perugia/Umbria Instead of Rome

Jump to last reply

We are flying into Rome from London on 25 October (a Saturday) this year. We arrive in the early afternoon and that is pretty much set in stone.

Originally planned to stay in Rome four nights and then train to Venice for another three.

Now wondering if Perugia/Umbria might be more interesting. Have been to Rome several times but never to Umbria and surrounds.

Assume a car would be needed and if so would almost have to rent one at the Rome airport and drive since perhaps the car rental offices in Perugia might be closed by the time we arrived (by rail).

I'd prefer to drop the car there and train on to Venice after the four nights despite the possible drop charge. The potential Perugia accommodation is outside of town so a car seems ideal and I am assuming a car really would be required to see any other nearby towns/sights.

We like Rome but want to do "something/somewhere different."

Suggestions appreciated and thanks.
