Hello! This is my first time to ask a question on Trip Advisor so forgive me :)
My husband and I will be traveling to Italy this summer. We are arriving in Rome on Tuesday, July 29th around 5:00pm. We plan to rent a car and drive to Paciano where we have a family friend's apartment to stay in (for free! Couldn't pass it up).
We have 4 nights available to us there. Our plan is to explore surrounding towns and definitely do a day trip to Siena. We are thinking we will pack up on our last day, return the rental car at the Florence airport (Peretola) and spend a night in Florence 8/01 before the next leg of our trip. We leave 8/02 to go to Positano and plan to take the train from Florence to Naples, then either hire a driver or venture the rest of the way via train/bus.
Am I missing something that I should do instead? All feedback welcome! If there is somewhere better to return the car en route to Positano, then perhaps we do a day trip to Florence from Paciano but via train earlier in the trip?
Thank you in advance!
