MrRancher and I just booked a trip to Rome in November. The plan is to arrive in Rome, hop on the train to Florence and spend 4 nights there. Maybe take a day trip to a country town (MrRancher wants to see a castle - I’m hoping there’s one a train ride away from Florence!). Then train back to Rome for 3 nights.
I have been to Florence and loved it - never been to Rome, and MrRancher has never been out of the USA, save for Mexico.
I think we’re going to stay somewhere between the train station and the Duomo in Florence - Hotel Enza seems pretty decent, but I’m open to suggestions. Not so sure about Rome though. We originally were going to stay near the train station, but I’m thinking now we should be in a nicer area and suck it up and pay a little more for a hotel somewhere away from the Termini.
We want to see the Sistine Chapel, Colosseum, Trevi fountain, Spanish steps, and other than that just want to wander and eat good food and drink good wine.
I can’t wait!!!
