Where you stay while in Rome sets the tone for your trip. There are many wonderful villas and estates outside the city to relax in nature. But perhaps you might want to save that for your Tuscany part of your trip.

The eternal city can be unique in that upon leaving your hotel or apt you could wander the streets and (hopefully) have a private tour guide ready to give you the context in order to fully appreciate your journey.
