Italy - Train or drive

Jump to last reply

Following a one week choral group tour in late May (three nights each in Orvieto and Rome) we then have 3 1/2 days (Wednesday AM to Saturday afternoon) until we arrive in Poppi (outside Florence) for a week-long cooking school, then flying home through Florence. We plan to have a car that last week for side trips, and also want to make good use of our 3-day interim period. Our first thought is to try to get to Pompeii and Sorrento for a day or two, work our way North into southern Tuscany, then get to Poppi by Day 4 - afternoon.

First option is to take the first tour's shuttle to FCO (already paid for) and rent a car at FCO for the rest of the trip.
Second option would be to use trains for the Rome - Pompeii/Sorrrento - Rome trip - then rent a car at FCO and drive North
Third option would be to use trains for everything until we get to Florence, then rent a car at FLR for the last week.

We will not be driving in Rome or Florence! My intuition is that I would want a car for the drive from Rome to Poppi, as we could stop at least one day/night somewhere in Tuscany. We have been to Siena and Florence, and will have opportunity to explore around Florence/Poppi during our "school week." I'm a bit concerned about using only trains for the interim trip, as we are not the best "bag wranglers."
