Help on itinerary and to drive or not

Jump to last reply

We are planning to go to Tuscany next September for a 12 day trip which means nine good days on the ground. We would like to stay in Florence half the time and Sienna the other half.
I am not sure that I want to drive although I know that many people on this board think it is the best way to see Tuscany. We thought that we would go to Lucca and Pisa on our own by train from Florence, and hire local guides for day trips in both Florence and Sienna to see other areas of Tuscany -for example- a wine tour one day, a visit to one or two towns with a guide the other days. We haven't decided which other towns we want to see. We don't need a private tour- small group tours are fine. We haven't eliminated the self drive but would prefer this one. Has anyone taken any day tours from Florence and Sienna? Is this a good option?
Thanks.
