Rome-Orvieto-Florence

Jump to last reply

We'll be flying into Rome from the Barcelona leg of our trip in late June. My tentative plan is something like this:
Day 1 - fly into Rome in early PM, eat, enjoy night
Day 2 - Rome
Day 3 - Rome
Day 4 - travel to Orvieto in early AM, explore and then onto Florence for dinner
Day 5 - Florence
Day 6 - Florence
Day 7 - back to Rome for flight back to Barcelona

I have been to both Rome and Florence before but my girlfriend hasn't, so we plan on doing a mix of must-sees (Sistine chapel, David, etc.) and "secondary" sights (Galleria Borghese, Medici chapels, etc.) time allowing.

Anyone who's been to Orvieto - it looks very interesting to me and I'd love to explore it if I can but I was wondering if it's 'worth' the time (considering our tight schedule) and if it is, is an afternoon sufficient to explore or does one really have to spend the night and at least a full day?
