Basque Country or Tuscany?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are in the process of planning our mid-July vacation and are trying to decide between Basque Country (probably San Sebastian) and Tuscany. We've never been to either place. By way of background, we're 31, no kids, and our favorite places that we've been thus far are Dijon, France and Sorrento, Italy due to the great food & wine, beautiful scenery, and walkable city centers. In other words, I want a destination that is relaxing but also has more to offer than just sitting on a beach or by a pool.

If we go to Basque Country, we'll fly in and out of Madrid and spend a couple days there (I would like to see Guernica). If we go to Tuscany, we'll fly in and out of Milan as it is currently much cheaper than flying into Florence. (I wouldn't mind seeing the Last Supper, but otherwise, I've not heard great things about Milan). We'll have 9 days total, which really equates to 7 days of vacation and 2 full days of travel.

I would be interested to hear your thoughts. Any advice is much appreciated!
