RonniD, it depends on what you like and how much time you have.

If yu have some time and like good wine and food, I would head south spend a few days in Piedmont, then down via Genoa, Cinque Terre, Pisa, Florence, and Rome, with side stops and detours in each place. Or you could go via Emiglia Roma, and cut down through Umbria and Tuscany, stop off at places like Urbino, Assisi and Sienna. So many places, my only advice is don't try to do too many, Italy is not going away you can always come back.

Ciao

I just want to decide if I should drive or train from Como to Florence (sorry I didn't write the original message correctly). We plan to train from Florence to Rome.

I only have a week this time- and have spent a good deal of time in Italy- but my friends are first timers.

It's a good idea to catch a train from Como to Florence bu then you definetly have to drive to Rome.

Chianti - Siena and Tuscany in general has to be experienced by car!
