Pienza and San Gimignano in the same day?

Jump to last reply

Will be staying in Florence for 4 nights and plan to take one day to rent a car and visit some Tuscan towns.
Since we were only renting the car for one day we were thinking of doing at most two places. The two highest on our list were Pienza and San Gimignano.
I'm wondering if doing both is possible if we leave Florence early, head to Pienza, then go to San Gimignano in the later afternoon (stopping for lunch somewhere along the way)?

I'm thinking we'd get around 2.5-3 hours of actual walking-around time in each city.

Would that be too rushed? We really can't bring ourselves to just pick one but if we had to what should it be?
