First time going to Tuscany in October

Jump to last reply

This looks like an active forum so I'm hoping someone can help me. I'm trying to plan a trip for my husband, my sister, and myself in the beginning of October. The train schedules aren't available yet so I'm getting a little nervous about my itinerary. ALSO, I'm looking for any hotel/dining recommendations that I can get. Last but not least, we plan to stay at an agriturismo for the last few days and I'd love one that's central and not too far out in the boonies. We will be renting a car for the hill towns portion of our trip. Our tentative itinerary is below!

Day 1 - Pisa (we arrive earlier that morning so we're hitting the high notes)
Day 2 - Cinque Terre
Day 3 - Lucca
Days 4-6 - Florence
Days 7-10 - Tuscan hill towns (looking at San Gimigiano, Volterra, Greve in Chianti, Montepulciano, Montalcino, any other interesting ones? Are there two that we could combine into one day of sightseeing?)

I'd love to find an agriturismo that could arrange a country excursion, a cooking class, wine tasting, olive oil tasting, trip to the spa...anything! I'll be browsing the forums as well, but I thought I should get this out there, the sooner the better. Thanks for any help!
