Friday, the 5th September, by train to Roma.
Depart Firenze Santa Maria Novella at 10.19 by Frecciarossa FR9563 and arrive Roma Tiburtina at 11.39.
Our hotel for 3 nights was the Barocca, Piazza Barberini, Via della Purificazione 4, 00187 Roma.
On our first afternoon we enjoyed a walk around the city, on the second day we visited the Vatican City and on our last day spent an interesting time in the Forum and Coliseum. It turned out to be the correct order in which to do things since on the first Sunday of each month which was our last day in Roma, the first 3000 people are allowed free access to both the Forum and Coliseum and, more importantly, there was no queue.
