Tuscany and Capalbio?

Jump to last reply

3 of us (early 70's, very active) are planning a 3 week trip to Italy next year: 3 days 4 nights in Venice, travel day, 4 days 5 nights in Florence, 4 days 5 nights in Rome, some time in Tuscany and Maremma on the way from Florence to Rome.

I'd like to ask you about the Tuscany & Maremma part.

One of us is an artist who would really like to spend some time at the Niki de Saint de Phalle Tarot Gardens near Capalbio in Maremma (as well as see the art in Florence & Rome). 2 of us would really like to experience the Tuscan hill towns.

The two of the possibilities that we're considering are as follows (but we're open to other suggestions):

Alternate 1
day 1: travel Florence to Siena, night at Siena
day 2: explore around Siena, night at Siena
day 3: day trip to nearby hill town(s), night at Siena
day 4: travel to Capalbio, night at Capalbio
day 5: Capalbio and the tarot garden, night at Capalbio
day 6: travel Capalbio to Rome

Alternate 2
day 1: travel Florence to Siena, night at Siena
day 2: travel to Capalibio or nearby hill town (any suggestions for a nearby hill town?),
day 3, 4, & 5*: relax and explore around agriturismo in Capalbio or the hill town and the tarot garden, night at Capalbio
day 6*: travel Capalbio to Rome
* maybe cut one day out and add to Venice, Florence, or Rome

Most of the trip (Venice, Florence, Rome) will be by train, but we're vacillating on the Florence to Rome part ,between renting a car or using a combination of local buses and trains.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
Thanks.
