Help with Florence as a base trip. Please! ;-)

Jump to last reply

6 adults in our party. Some first timers, some revisits. Staying in a 4br apartment in Florence which is supposed to right at base of Ponte Vecchio. (good location? View looks amazing!)

Our main objective is to enjoy Italy. No one in group feels like we need to see it all, do it all in a week. Want to immerse ourselves in the culture and surroundings, people, etc.

That being said, we would like a balanced trip. Art, culture, wine, scenery, wine, oh did I say wine? We are all very much looking forward to the food and the wine. My husband is a Chef and part of the trip is to inspire him for new ideas for our restaurant. We are taking 2 employees, and our wine distributor. This is my first trip, but almost everyone else has traveled to Italy several times before. That being said, they would like for me to plan it. Good grief!

So I was thinking:
2 days Wine/vineyard tours
2 days local trips. (Sienna is on my must do list!, any other suggetions, so many wonderful places....can't decide)
2 days Art, Culture, Museums, etc

Will be there 7 nights. Flying into Rome on overnight from FL, so one day might be a fog. Then on outbound have 1 night in Rome to see one or two highlights. (probably more wine!)

We won't have a car and be relaying on trains/buses. From all the reading I have done on here and in guide books seem like it is easy and manageable.

So is it good plan so far? How to split up days? (wine day, day trip day, museum day?)
Transportation for wine tours? I did find one that would pick us at at Apartment but seemed costly. ($130 per person) Or is that reasonable?

I do appreciate all your good expert advice. Any advice on restaurants in Florence and Sienna is also appreciated. Thank you!!
