Get from Rome to Florence and what hotels are recommended.
My wife and I live in the New York area. We are planning to spend a week in Tuscany during late June 2016.
We were thinking of flying into Rome and getting to Florence either by train or car rental. Staying in Florence and doing day trip/tours in Florence and the towns/countryside surrounding the city.
any recommendations as to how to get there, where to stay, places to dine, where to visit would be greatly appreciated.
