Thanks to all who replied to my question re: Rome-Assisi. I am also thinking of Rick's 7 days in Florence trip. I would fly into Rome, spend a night or two I am thinking, then go up to Florence for the tour. Then hit Assisi on the way back to Rome. What is the transportion like in terms of convenience, travel time, etc from Rome to Florence, Florence to Assisi, and Assisi to Rome. Thank you!!!

All very easy. Rome to Florence takes 1hr. 40min. Florence to Assisi takes 2.5hrs on the local trains. Assisi to Rome Termini takes the same 2.5hrs. Florence to Rome is on a Eurostar. Trains from Florence to Assisi and Assisi to Rome are mostly on local R trains.

I took the train from Assisi to Rome in May and it is very easy to negotiate taking you right into Termini. It is also one of the prettiest trips you can take.

Hi Connie!

We just returned from Italy and took the exact same itinerary (Rome, Assisi, Florence back to Rome) in an eight day trip (10 days if you count the two flying to and from). We did three days in Rome, one day/overnigt in Assisi and four days in Florence. It was perfect for us. We felt we had enough time in each place to do the Must See sites and still wander aimlessly around exploring neighbhorhoods. Each place is unique and we loved all three for different reasons. We took the Trenitalia trian from one location to the next. It was convenience, safe, comfortable, efficient and didn't eat up huge amounts of time. Once in each place we got around mostly on foot, or by bus or cab. Before we left, I spent time on the Trenitalia website and printed out the schedules for each leg of the journey so that when we approach the ticket agent we could overcome any communication barriers and avoid any potential mistakes (like ending up in Pompeii instead of Assisi).
