Thinking of doing FCO-FRA on Tue night and leaving FRA Wed 1:20 pm. Anything to do Wed morning in FRA? If not I can just do FCO-FRA-NYC Wed morning.

Landing at 8:55am means you won't get to FCT before 9:30 at the earliest.

Unless you can confirm via FCT/Avis ahead of time, it'll take them some time to get the Porsche ready which will only happen once you arrive at 9:30.  Even if you're super lucky, I don't see you departing FRA in the Porsche before 10:30. That mean you'll safely have 90 mins or so. I don't see that being enough time.

So I am overnighting in FRA and my flight out of FRA is 1:20 pm the following day. I have to be back in the airport at least 11 pm to check out the FCT etc.
What would you guys recommend? Where should I stay overnight? Where to eat breakfast? and and what to do there in the morning. Other than Kevarim it look like Warms and Rashi museum is the must see. Anything else? (I can switch to the 5:10 pm flight if need be)

This trip is for this week so I would appreciate an informative response ASAP. Thanks.

Looks like the experts are all on vacation.

Don't think there's much more besides for kevarim and worms. Note that there are 2 cemeteries in Frankfurt the new and the old. You can also go to Mainz where the Maharam M'irotenburg is buried. Lots make it a priority to visit the Bal Shem in Michelsdadt as well.

What exactly is there to see on worms? The Porsche I'm renting only gives me 150 km will it be enough?

Mapquest. You don't have a lot of time. In Worma there is an old cemetery the maharam is right at entrance and the Chavos yair and the maharil are down towards the far end. There is a map of important kevarim when you come in. Make sure you have some coins for parking. The Rashi shul, mikvah, museum are all right next to each other I parked on hinter judengasse.

I used GPS so I'm not sure exactly the route I took but there were definitely areas with no speed limit. I was going over 100 mph and had people passing me in the left lane

Im landing in Frankfurt at 11:35 am and taking off to TLV at 5:55pm. What is the protocol when exiting the airplane? What do I do after I get off of the airplane? Do I have to go through customs? Will I have a few hours to go out of the airport and check out the city?

Does anyone know open hours for the West End Synagogue in Frankfurt and the old cemetery?
Does anyone know hours for the cemetery in Michelstadt?
Also I see Sohar is closed on Mondays.  Is there any place to eat on Monday?
