Good base location around Florence

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will have 4 days to get a taste of Florence and surrounding areas at the end of May. This is our first time in Italy. We'll be coming from Rome on May 26 and need to return to Rome on May 30. I know it's not a lot of time so just want to get to some highlights. Would like to visit Florence for sure and cinque terre and if possible one other town that is close by. I would like some help with the following questions

Should we rent a car in Rome to drive to Tuscany or should we take the train? I'm thinking if we rent a car we might be able to enjoy the scenery better and perhaps drive by any interesting towns on the way up north and then back south. Concerned about driving in Rome although it would be minimal since we would be leaving town.

Would like a good recommendation for a base location / accommodation near Florence that is accessible via train or bus (if we decide not to rent a car). So we can take a day trip to other towns.

Should we stay in Florence for the 4 nights and do a day trip to cinque terre and Pisa using public transportation or should we stay outside of Florence and do a day trip to Florence or should we stay in the countryside and drive ourselves to where we want to go.
Undecided on the base location and the method of transportation. City or country? Rent a car or take buses or train? What would be the best use of our time for that area during such a short visit?

Should we give up cinque terre?

Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
