how long is the drive bet. rome and florence

We would like to know how long is the drive bet. Rome and Florence- in distance and in time.
Is it a good idea to drive for a schedule tight trip?

Thank you
Dor

Just returned from my Honeymoon in Rome and Siena. If you take the A1, the fastest route, it should take you about 4-5 hours, depending on stops and how fast you drive. The drive is lovely.

We made the trip in less than four hours, got a little carried away with the Italian zest for speed while we were over there. Trains are usually on time so not sure what your question is on tight trip. If you're asking if it's too far to catch the typical morning flight I would say yes.

shellgeostar.com will give you routes, distances (mi or km), and driving times between European cities. Try it -- it's great fun.

This was a relatively easy 3-hour drive on the A1. I don't see how it could take 5 hours if you don't stop along the way.

I'm surprised that no one has suggested NOT driving. I am a major leadfoot, but even I can not compete with the 95 minutes the train takes. I agree with 3 hours by car, possibly a little bit less.

Best wishes,

Rex
