uuuuh.. you might want to visit the Air force museum at Vigna di Valle, around 2 hours from Rome by car, close to the Bracciano lake where you can also have a very good lunch. lots of WWI, WWII and modern airplanes including D'Annunzio's plane, Ruffo's, Macchi 200, 202, S 79, F104, Tornado, etc. and free.

Can you get to Florence?

if so, the Stibbert Museum is a must!

Check though, and see what day they open the Samurai armour exhibit (they don't do it very day)

First word of Italian you need to learn is chiuso=shut.

Only after you have paid full whack to get in while you be told that up to half the galleries are 'chiuso'. Some may have been chiuso for decades!

I hanker to see Solferino. Passed the lakeside Hannibal victory site in my youth, name escapes me now?

This site does not have much for Italy but I have found it extremely useful for the rest of Europe.
