Should I ditch staying in Florence for Bologna

Jump to last reply

The more I read about Italy the more I cannot decide on certain places.

After spending a week with a car in Tuscany, originally I thought to stay 4/5 nights in Florence and also use it as a base to explore other day trip areas. But................ after reading more trip information here and especially LowCountryIslanders trip report of Bologna, I know I would like to spend some time there and do some of the tours she mentioned. We would like to do the day tour to the cheese factory, Balsamic prodution and winery tour and also the cooking class.

I note that we can get a train to Florence in 37 mins.....not bad. We like to base ourselves for at least 4/5 nights. Would I be doing the "wrong thing" by not staying "in Florence". Or do you consider Bologna a good base for 5 nights.

Has anyone stayed at www.anticaresidenzadazeglio.it or www.bb-benelli.it. Both places look good.

And by the way I have now booked and paid for the Air tickets so am now getting excited putting the pieces together. Any thoughts are appreciated.
