We're spending a few days in CT in October and thought we'd save the planet by taking the train from Rome FCO airport to CT.However, it's a long journey (5-6 hours); not cheap (50 - 60 euro per person, per direction) and not that restful (2 or 3 changes with 2 suitcases and carry-ons).As we are arriving late at FCO, we would also bear the cost of getting to and from a hotel for the first night.
So, we thought we'd hire a small car, which leads me to a few questions whch iI hope the collective experience of the forum can answer.
Has anybody driven from FCO to CT? If so, did you drive along the autostrada or along the coastal road via Grosseto and how long did it take? (Google Maps says should take me ca. 5 hours for either route).
As we are taking a car to CT, would it be more convenient (for parking) to stay somewhere nearby, near the train line, and take the train in daily?
Many thanks inadvance for your replies,
