Roma...any ideas for exploration?

Jump to last reply

I have been head over heels for Rome for the last five years, when I said to friend one day, on a whim, "Let's go to Rome!" I had been there before, but whirlwind visits in the heat of summer. We took our trip in February and have gone every February since. My last visit was about two and a half weeks. We took a nice side trip to Tivoli. I always find new things to enjoy in Rome.

I am thinking of a trip this autumn and, while the thought of visiting Italy without a stay in Rome is unthinkable to me, I would like to experience a couple of other cities/towns that I could reach easily by train, and would offer enough to hold my interest for two or three days. I am not necessarily looking for tourist attractions, although I love visiting churches and museums, but perhaps enjoy walking about and exploring the streets and seeing the people most of all.

I am looking at an itinerary of 2 and a half to three weeks again. Towns and cities that have come to mind are Orvieto and Viterbo. A friend from Puglia has suggested some sites in that region as well.

So, if anybody is knowledgeable about the area and has suggestions for an itinerary, I would really appreciate it. I am 64, retired and, thankfully, in pretty good shape, so walking is not an obstacle.
