Where to stop for the night


New member
We are flying into Rome in mid September to visit friends in Barga.
We plan to rent a car but after an overnight flight I really don't want to drive all the way to Barga the first day. Suggestions on where to spend the first night? Should we go up the coast or the interior? Where should we stop?

We have the same problem on the way home. I want to drive down from Barga to FCO the night before we leave. Where to stay?
