My wife and I are going on our first trip to Italy next Spring. We wanted to stay outside the city so we book a place in Boccea.
We also rented a car so we can go from the airport to the hotel and surrounding areas ourselves. We are NOT planning on driving in Rome, but would love to drive out to the countryside one day.
What areas (north or south of the city) would make for a great day of sightseeing on our own, without having to drive 100 MPH on the A90... we are first time Euro Drivers.
