Florence to Rome with a stop in Assisi

Hello! I have about 2 weeks in Italy. I will be staying some days in Florence and would like to visit Assisi. Is it possible to go from Florence early morning to Assisi and then to Rome in the evening the same day?

If so, what would I do with my luggage once I get to Assisi?

I can always stay a night in Assisi, but I am trying to avoid the hassle of checking in and out of another hotel.

According to the Trenitalia website, there is luggage storage at the Assisi station although I've never used or seen it. I think the first thing you need to do is figure out when this office is open (days of the week, time of day). Perhaps someone else here (kybourbon? GAC?) can decipher the Trenitalia website because I couldn't find this information.

Once you know about the luggage storage, you can check the train timetables to decide how early you can leave Florence and how late you can leave Assisi. Don't forget to factor in the time needed to ride the shuttle bus between the train station and the center of town. You won't be required to spend the night in Assisi, but you will spend several hours on the train that day.

You can check train schedules here:

Well, according to a poster on this site, the office was closed in September 2011.

... and I'm not finding any more recent comments on the issue of luggage storage at Assisi.

If you're staying at a hotel in either Florence or Rome, you might send emails, tell them your plan and ask if they can help with up-to-date information.

my other option is to take a tour from Rome to Assisi and Orvieto. I would have loved to have a full day in Assisi, but I didn't see a tour like that. I will check with the hotel. THank you!!
