best way to Catanzaro from Rome and Florence

We are traveling to Catanzaro in late August and wondering the best way to get there. We are going to be stopping in Rome to drop off our mother to go down to Catanzaro first while we head up to Florence for a wedding. We are trying to figure out the best way for her to travel from Rome to Catanzaro( she speaks fluent Italian) and for us to meet up with her a few days later leaving from Florence. We will then all be leaving at the same time together back to the United Sates and will need to pick up our flight out of Rome. Any advice is greatly apprcieated. We are looking at high speed train verses renting a car or flying

thanks

If she can speak Italian and can get around easily then the trains are good, although in August it's holiday season so you will have to pre-book. Sometimes in Italy even a pre-booked ticket doesn't guarantee a seat on a train as people just sit in your seat and you have to argue with them until an inspector comes by. Otherwise a no-fuss option is to fly.
