Suggestions for travel to Florence and Italy in October/November

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are traveling to Italy, October/November timeframe, to visit our daughter who will be studying in Florence. Looking for suggestions for a 10 day trip. We are thinking to visit Venice for 2 days - travel by train. Definitely want to visit the Tuscany region - possibly day trips from Florence? What cities would you recommend? Copied this from Ben and Amy's post regarding our interests...."history, historical sites, and culture. So, when we visit a place we like to get a feel for where people came from, how they got here, and what their lives are like now. Of course, you can't get a full feel for this in a short visit but we tend to gravitate towards museums and sites that help to illustrate and provide context related to the culture of an area. We enjoy "light" hiking and biking and can't wait to explore local foods and wines. We prefer "real" towns to those that are pretty much 100% tourist towns"..

Haven't booked airfare yet. Have been told it is not much more to fly in and out of different cities. Very conflicted as to where to stay....hotels? TripAdvisor and AirBnb have so many options (a bit overwhelming!) Is it best to stay somewhere that includes a meal/breakfast?

Want to enjoy and not feel super rushed with traveling from city to city. So perhaps Florence, Venice and Tuscan region? Thanks so much for your help!
