Trip down Tuscan coast

Jump to last reply

We have a trip to Rome and Tuscany lined up for July. For the Tuscany part we are based on San Gimignano. Our flight on the last day (from Rome Airport) isn't till 4:30pm, so we have plenty of time after checking out to explore more of Tuscany

I am considering a trip down the coast but it's not clear to me whether that is worthwhile. I was assuming / hoping that it's beautiful and that the journey would be delightful. But I am not sure of the best way to make the most of that time. Should I head out to Cecina on SR68 and then head down the coast or would it be easier to just head down to Grosseto (via e78) and south from there.

My idea of this part of our trip "done right" is seeing spectacular coast, having time for a beautiful lunch and getting to Rome Airport with no stress, etc. I'd probably want to be in the airport area around 2pm to drop of the car, etc. So, if we head out around 9am that leaves roughly five hours for us to explore.

Suggestions?

Thanks.

Mark
