On a map, Italy looks like a very small country and now-a-days you can get from Rome to Florence or Florence to Venice (or vice versa) in less than 1.5 hours. It’s definitely a high-speed way to get from one of the major art cities to the next, so no doubt, you can zip into Rome for a couple of days, head up to Florence and then up to Venice .
The cost of rail tickets between each section depending when you’re going is usually about 90 Euros + tax for each rail segment and so many people think taking rail is the most economic way to see Italy, and in some instances depending on the purpose of your trip, and maybe it is, but at what cost?
Between Florence and Rome there are the incredible regions of Lazio with unbelievably gorgeous towns like Civita Del Bagnoreggio or further south between Rome and Naples, there is the incredible Castelli Romani territory, Monte Casino, Caserta and several other incredible areas of beautiful natural and historical interest.
The point is, if you are going to be taking rail, you are probably missing out on incredible opportunities to visit towns and cities en-route, that you might have to back-track to see either by private car, bus, or tour – that at the end of the day you may ultimately end up spending more money by not taking a private transfers.
Using private driving services particularly between Rome and Naples and Rome and Florence make sense and can add a great deal of value to your trip and can save you time and additional hidden expenses.
