Hey! Just wanted to get some advice! I'm planning a mostly driving tour of Italy in August. The leg of the trip I'm not too sure about is driving from Abruzzo--specifically Pescara area--to just outside of Florence. Google maps offers a few suggested routes, but I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions. Time doesn't really matter too much--one day though. The longer route is the inland route--I assume it's because of mountains. Was thinking of driving up the coast from Pescara to Civitanova Marche, then cutting across to Certaldo, Florence--just to get a little taste of both coast and countryside. It seems the fastest route is to go all the way up to Bologna. Like I said, faster isn't better for us--we want to take in the countryside. I was just wondering if anyone has done this, and what suggestions you might have for this route. We're looking for scenic views, but not too excited for bumper to bumper traffic....I heard this is often the case up the coast because it is a popular route. Anyway, what do you think??

Wow thanks! Yeah! I had a few other people suggest going inland from Piceno--which is further south. I'm going to have to look into that. Both routes go through Perugia , ad then up from there. I will look into those cities along there! Thank you so much!!
