2 gutsy ladies in Rome and Florence in March

Two grey haired Grandmas with guts are traveling to Rome and Florence in March air is booked and so are the Hotels. What should we absolutely see? Taking train to Florence r/t from Rome which train should we take? How much is the fare approximately?

Brava to the Grandmas. But don't worry that you'll need a lot of guts - it's all really much easier than it appears. Just take a step at a time and enjoy.

There is a train that leave rome at 8:30 am and arrive in Florence at 10:06 am
The price for first class is 42.35, second class is 29.46.
The second class is a better bargain with the ES..
Have Fun,
Ciao,
kismet

In response to "What should we absolutely see?" - - there is no 250 word answer (or even 2500 word) provided here that is even a pale substitute for getting yourself one or preferably two guidebooks for each of these phenomenal cities, and literally reading them cover to cover, like a novel.

Since you have already booked hotels, one has to wonder if you haven't already done a litle bit of studying booksor some kind of info in print or online. Do you just want confirmation here of the obvious? The Vatican, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Uffizi? A list like that seems pointless, when with any reasonable investment of time reading, you will come up with more than you can possibly see in a month - - prioritized as only you and your interests can, and will, dictate.

So, get thee bravely hence to yon public library, Borders, Barnes & Noble's or any variation there-on.

In the meantime, you could take a look at what our gracious hosts here provide for you, without even having to open a book:

Best wishes,
