First Night & Jet Lagged: Where to Stay besides Rome after landing FCO

Jump to last reply

We are landing at FCO about 4:00 pm for 15 nights in Umbria and Rome in October.

I think I should save Rome for the end. So landing this late in Rome tired and jet lagged as we are coming from San Francisco, I am trying to avoid going into Rome that first night.

Thinking about a private transfer to Orvieto ( I think about 200 euro) -- If I add everything up (Rome hotel for 1 night, train to termini, train to Orvieto, taxi to hotel) plus pain and suffering and loss of time - that is almost a wash to me.

Is there a better first night non-Rome town to start off with to ease into in our jet lagged stated for the first two nights?

Itinerary shaping up to look something like this (I have only spent a few days working on this):
Oriveto (2) -train
Perugia (3) - train
Spello or Bevagna (4) - with car
Rome (6) - train
