Lucca area or Cortona area?

Jump to last reply

Flying to Italy in one week and splitting up our Tuscany holiday between the northern region and southern. As we have 9 nights to divide, I am wondering which is the best way to do it. We will be staying outside of Lucca (San Lorenzo a Vaccoli) and then outside Cortona. So far I have booked for 5 nights in each place and have until later today to change one of them to 4 days.

Can anyone help me with this? I have been to outside of Cortona 2 yrs ago and visited Siena, San Gimiangno (sp?), Pienza, and many of the other small hill towns near Cortona, but never got to Florence or Lucca or Pisa. My husband hopes to get one day in the Cinque Terre which is closer to Lucca.

My thoughts are to stay 5 nights near Lucca and then 4 nights near Cortona and visit more of the Umbria region when in Cortona area.

Any help is greatly appreciated
