My husband and I arrive in Rome at around 5:30 PM and would like to head straight to Assisi. The problem is we will be very tired (after over 24 hours of traveling). We were considering renting a car at the airport in Rome, but are concerned about driving to Assisi when we are tired and it is dark. It appears to be about a 2 hour train ride. Perhaps it would be better for us to take the train to Assisi and spend 2 nights there before picking up a rental car in Peruglia.
Can anyone offer some advice?
