Getting overwelmed planning! Please help with Tuscany/Riviera plan

Jump to last reply

For our family trip to Italy next summer, we are looking to spend a week in an agriturismo in Tuscany, and also about 4 nights in a coastal town to visit the cinque terre and enjoy some boating excursions to see those iconic views of villages clinging to the shore. During that 11 nights, we'd like to see Florence, Pisa, Siena, Pienza, San Gimignano, and other hill towns. We'd also like to see cinque terre, portovenere, santa margherita, maybe camogli or sestri levante? My question is which 2 locations make the most sense for our accommodations? Does it make sense to see some of the inland tuscany spots from the coastal base (for instance, I know many cruise excursions to florence and pisa start at a coastal town)? Should the Tuscany base be north or south? My initial thought is visiting some northern Tuscany places from the riviera base if they are close, and then doing our agriturismo stay in southern tuscany, but I may be way off on the geography and distances. If this isn't practical and we need to stick to only coastal sites from our coastal base, then where in Tuscany should we stay for the Tuscany sites? I'd love to keep our car travel most days to an hour or less (each way). Can anyone help with a logical plan?
