Help with Italy itinerary (yes, another one of these), thanks!

Jump to last reply

Hello Fodorites! We are planning a trip to Italy in March, 2015. We went to Venice, Val d'Orcia (San Quirico D'Orcia) and Rome on our first trip (2011). Stu Dudley, your Val D'Orcia guide was our guide as well, so thanks for that!

This time, we'd like to take in Florence, some additional Italian countryside, and then end in Rome.

I need help figuring out how to spend our time. We'd like to fly into Florence, stay there X days, then pick up a rental car (we could go to the airport for this, or take a train to somewhere else). Then spend about 4 nights exploring via car, then drop the car at a train station and train to Rome. We've already done some of the major Rome sites, so this time we could concentrate on other things, maybe an Underground Tour, or even going out to Ostia Antica.

My husband has indicated that he might like to split our "charming countryside" part of the trip into two locales. He said he got a little bored after 4 nights in one B&B last time.

So maybe:
Florence: 3 or 4 nights
Tuscany or maybe Umbria? Need help!: 4 nights, split between two lodgings.
Rome: 3 or 4 nights.

Haven't bought airline tickets yet, so exact number of days are up in the air.
Any lodging ideas appreciated. We appreciate friendly hosts over the most sumptuous quarters.

Our interests are really just to relax and enjoy ourselves, have long leisurely lunches, visit churches, town squares, a few museums, etc. We'll be back, so there is no hurry.

Grazie!
