We will have 7 nights to see Rome and Tuscany (flying into Rome/out of Florence), the first week of Oct, '14. We are considering 2 nights in Rome for private Vatican tour and ruins, etc. Question is-- given short time frame, should we spend remaining 5 nights in Florence as our hub, and spend our time exploring Florence and a day trip or 2 to the countryside, or split up those nights -- maybe 3 in Florence and 2 in the countryside? We are thinking train from Rome to Florence, and then perhaps rent a car or scooter for all or part of the time. Thanks!
