NEED HELP/ Start in Tuscany or Italian Riviera?

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone, trying to start planning and booking for mid May trip. We can stay for 14 days and love to visit the Italian Riviera ( the famous villages/points,Portofino) and spend 4-5 days in Tuscany. I don't know where our starting point should be? We are arriving from California and can arrive into Genoa . We have already been in Amalfi Coast area and been in Florance too so would like to try to fly in in Genoa or Milan .
Please make suggestion as to where to start and how many days in each city. In Tuscany, we have already been in Chianti and San Gimignano. Would love to see Siena, Montepulciano (because it seems there are many possitive comments on these area). Where should be our main spot to stay in hotel and then drive around to see the close by villages for 4-5 days?
Should we see the Italian Riviera first then travel to Tuscany?
We are avid travellers mid 50's and love to see villages drive around, see local tradition and people.
Please give us your input.
Thanks so much.
