Driving from Rome to Florence?

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are traveling to Italy in early October. We are starting out in Rome, going to Florence, then ending up in Venice. We fly into Rome and out of Venice. I am thinking that I might like to drive from Rome to Florence instead of taking the train, just so we can spend a day going through the hills of Tuscany. We might also stop at Civita De Bagnoregio. But I've never done this, so I don't know if this will be too long of a day trip and make it not worth the trouble. We are staying very close to Ponte Vecchio, so we would likely have to drive to Firenze Santa Maria Novella and then get a cab/Uber to where we are staying.

Does this make sense, or should we skip this idea and just take the train? We've planned for a full day to get from Rome to Florence, so we won't be missing anything else on our itinerary. Just wondering if getting out of Rome / into Florence will be a nightmare.
