Easter in Tuscany

Jump to last reply

Hi all, just a quick background for us: we honeymooned in Italy five years ago. On our honeymoon we did not see any of Tuscany, closest we got to it was a few nights in Orvieto which we loved. We also spent a few nights in Rome and loved it as well. We're both looking forward to seeing Rome again and exploring new parts of Italy, wishing we had more time but making the best of what we have. We do like to stay busy and see a lot but we don't expect to see it all, nor do we want to try to.

Yesterday we snagged some cheap tickets to Italy for our 5-year anniversary and realized shortly thereafter that we will be in Italy over the Easter holidays as we will arrive Rome April 14 and depart Rome April 23. We were thinking to start our trip in Tuscany, staying 5-6 nights, and end our trip in Rome, staying 3-4 nights. We are open to basing ourselves in Florence, Siena, Pienza or another town (and possibly mixing two locations, like Florence and Pienza). Definitely open to a rental car. I would not normally have any concerns with planning this kind of trip as I love trip planning, but the holidays of Easter Sunday and Monday have me wondering where the best location might be to base ourselves during those holiday days?

The Florence festivities do sound fun but I'm wondering how much more crowded Florence will be than say the normal summer season? Another concern of mine is if it will be problematic to try to pick up a rental car Easter Monday, if we were to spend 3 nights in Florence at the beginning of our trip. I'm also wondering if anyone knows if the rental places will even be open...a brief search on Hertz made it look like the Sansovino location was not available but the airport location was?

Any insight to Easter in Tuscany would be greatly appreciated! :)
