Four days in Tuscany region

Jump to last reply

Hi

My husband and I are traveling to Italy in the fall and will be in the Tuscany region for four nights/five days. Looking for suggested itinerary for these days. I posted earlier in this Forum asking about transportation- I think we will probably have a car during these days to travel.

Thanks- Wendy

    Tuscany is one of the biggest regions of Italy, so other people need to know where in Tuscany you are staying. I saw your other post -- and therefore can add here that you are staying in Reggello, which is about 25 ams outside of Florence.

    If you want to see Florence it is easiest to use public transportation to visit the city, because the city has extremely strict rules about non-residents being forbidden from driving in certain areas within the city. The city is ringed with video cameras that snap photos of license plates, and rental agencies cooperate with police to identify drivers who break the law. No mercy is shown to tourists!

    Otherwise, it is a lot of fun to drive in the area of Tuscany where you will be staying, and the choices for small towns and art and history sites or wineries, is just about overwhelming. There are guidebooks you can purchase on Amazon like "Best Drives in Chianti" or you can find them online. They can be very helpful.

    For people to help you here with suggestions, you will get more useful answers if you talk about why you decided to go to Tuscany. What are you hoping to see? Do you have any special interests? Art? Wine? Ceramics? World War 2 history? Etruscans? Horseback riding? Motorcycle racing? Religion? Fashion shopping? Music?
