Getting around in Tuscany

Jump to last reply

My wife and I have always wanted to visit Tuscany and I am planning it for our 25th anniversary trip next September. I am researching places to stay but one aspect I am not clear on is just how easy it is to get around (or how necessary).

My goal is pretty simple for that part of our trip - I want to wallow in the beauty of Tuscany countryside and relax :) But I also can't imagine just sticking around at the hotel for the duration.

We are not really drinkers so wine tours are "OK" but not particularly interesting (maybe just one might be interesting). Would one generally need to hire a car to explore a little or are there other options? Given my goals, are there specific areas/regions I might want to consider?

I plan to have a hotel for three nights.

Thanks.

Mark
