Quick drive from Florence to Rome- suggestions!

Jump to last reply

So we're renting a car in Florence on a Monday and driving some or all of the way to Rome to get there by Wednesday. This leaves 2 nights in the Tuscan countryside. 2 questions:

Do we dare attempting the entire drive to Rome? Should we drop the car in Orvieto and take the 2.5 hour train to Rome for ease?

If we're spending only two nights between Florence and Rome, where and what would you recommend doing? Vineyards and towns would be appreciated. Right now I'm thinking Siena and Orvieto might be best for lodging etc.

Any advice, tips, or anything would be very much appreciated!
