Day Trips from Rome?

Jump to last reply

I'm contemplating a trip to Rome towards the end of April - possibly 7-10 days on the ground. I'm wondering if anyone can suggest day trips from Rome? I don't particularly feel like packing up and changing hotels. I have been several times before (My most recent trip was Venice/Florence/Rome), but may be travelling with a cousin who has never been to Europe (which is the reason I'm asking the question - on my own I would just wing it).

I am looking at train travel.

The obvious places are north to Florence and Sienna (I will go to Florence regardless as it's my favourite city), south to Naples and Pompeii - that is at least the radius that I would like to stay within - ie no more than 2 hours in either direction.

I'm wondering if there are smaller towns in between that might be interesting - either for views, history or food. I would not be taking a trip everyday, but perhaps 2 or 3 over the span of the trip. Museums are not a huge priority, as there are plenty to see in both Rome and Florence.

Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
