Need a reality check
Our overnight flight arrives in Rome on a Friday morning. We check into our Gaiole in chianti flat on Saturday. I originally was going to stay Friday in Rome (we'll also be there later for 5 nights), however my kids (7 and 9) won't stop talking about seeing the tower.
Is it completely crazy to train to Pisa the morning we get in and spend the night there instead (this would avoid a REALLY long day trip to Pisa from Gaiole and reduce the driving time to our rental)?
The train I am considered is the Leonardo express connecting to a fast train from termini that makes a few stops (including citavecchia) but avoids Florence. Is this the fastest/best way? Or is there a commuter train line from the airport that could connect in Citavecchia (or elsewhere)?
Also if our flight arrives on time at 940, can we make an 11AM train (not buying tickets, but want an idea).
