Cities to visit from Rome to Lucca along the coast?

Hey folks,

I'm going on a road-trip with some friends and we'll be driving from FCO up to Lucca. We have about 10 hours to make our way from the airport to Lucca. We'll be taking the coastline route up to Lucca and then travel inland along the tollroads on the way back down to Rome. I would really appreciate any recommendations to visit little towns for lunch or to just see along the way for either oute. I'll be going during the last week of February. Thanks all!

The coastal road is not all that good or all that scenic.

Consider the Via Cassia (SS 2) instead: Roma - Vetralla - Viterbo - Montefiascone - Siena - Florence. This is *not* the autostrada.

Hy!!!

What about Massa Marittima? Lovely little town near Grosseto, right in the middle between Lucca and Rome.

Have a look at www.massamarittima.info/english/home/home.htm

Enjoy your stay...good choice Lucca is wonderful!!!

You can visit Tarquinia ( one of the most important Etruscan towns) and stop in Orbetello ( with its beautiful lagoon ) and Monte Argentario ( Porto Ercole, Porto Santo Stefano are small and pretty villages on the sea). Of course, you will pass from Pisa, which worths more than a short visit..
