Rome and Florence... and somewhere in between!

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow travelers,

We (my husband and I) are arriving in Rome on December 24th. early in the morning and would like some advice on what to do on that day and also on Christmas day. We do not know if attending Mass at the Vatican is doable or if the crowds are just too much to deal with, what is it going to be open on Christmas day, even if there is going to be a place open for lunch... We live in Boston and we know that the only option here is a Chinese restaurant!

Also, since I am already sharing, I will tell you about the whole plan for the week, maybe I can get some useful tips.

3 nights in Rome, rent a car to go to Florence and spending one night on the road, 2 nights in Florence, last night in Rome. Which is the best place to spend that "on the road" night? Perugia? Ovieto? Siena? We enjoy both cities and the countryside, museums and ruins, the modern and the old... I would just appreciate some pieces of advice and we are really open to suggestions, we only have the plane tickets but have not booked the hotels yet.

Grazie mille!
