We are planning a trip next November to Italy. I had first thought about staying in Tuscany in Prato in a place close to a train station from which to travel to Florence, Lucca, Pisa and other towns. My question is two fold. I have a heard a lot about Umbria being off the beaten tourist path and was thinking about basing in Assisi rather than Prato. Can I still see Tuscany and Umbria from Assisi? Is there a train ticket that I can buy for a fixed period of time and unlimited travel? Thank you!
