Day Trip to Siena from Florence?

Jump to last reply

So I have been tweaking my Italy tour quite a bit since I booked the trip a few days ago. The idea was to "roadtrip" through Italy to really get an authentic feel of it all. Needless to say, I have completed changed the trip to involve more train and way less car.

I have gotten much needed feedback here on Fodors as to how I should go about my trip and most importantly how to avoid driving in the larger cities (Florence, Rome, Naples and Amalfi Coast). So for the most part we have decided to go by train into those cities. However, we were also planning a trip into the Tuscana Region or perhaps Umbria to get a feel of the Italian country side, which I have yet to do.

My questions is, should I just make a day trip out into Siena, Lucca or Orvieto from Florence by train and avoid a car all together? Or will it be more enjoyable renting a car outside of Florence, and driving through those regions for a few days, returning the car before we get into Rome? Again, I would really like to see the country side and even stay two nights in one of those provinces. Just not sure if it's actually worth it. Would a day trip suffice?

Also! Any wine/cooking class tours that can be recommended for these areas?

Thoughts?
