Itinerary help- Florence to Rome with a stop in a country spot?

Jump to last reply

Hi, we are traveling from Florence to Rome and flying out of FCO. We thought that rather than just take the train, we could rent a car and make an adventure out of it.

We plan to leave Florence in the morning, drive somewhere, spend the afternoon and night, and then drive to Rome (staying near the airport) in the afternoon.

We like to wander small towns by foot, find casual food, window shop, see basic sights and head to bed early. We don't want to deal with overly complicated parking if we can avoid it, and would like to see a place more in the countryside.

I have looked into Orvieto but I am wondering what other people think.

Also, we have a 4 year old daughter- she is very well behaved but we are not looking to spend the day in a serious museum or wine tasting!

Thanks!
