Itinerary Florence, Lucca, Pisa, Southern Tuscany (Siena?)

Jump to last reply

We fly in and out of Rome. So I want to figure out what makes sense. Not going back and forth and wasting time on a train every few days..

After our time in Rome we plan on heading towards Tuscany with a 4 and 8 year old. We have 8 days at this point to do whatever we want.

I am trying to figure out what is best... Train from Rome to Florence (stay in florence for how long?)
then just one day trip to Pisa? (I heard not much to do there)

Train to Lucca from Florence for the day only or spend a few nights there? Does Lucca have trains to Siena or the southern part of Tuscany?

Would we need a car in Lucca? I heard we can rent bikes (which sounds wonderful)
We want to get to the countryside of Tuscany. The place we want to stay at suggest we have a car in their area.....so maybe this could be our ending point before we head back to Rome.

Suggestions for a main base or up to two main bases with the ability to take a few day trips.
Any advice, thoughts, suggestion would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!
