Tuscany vs. Umbria

Jump to last reply

As part of a 2-week trip to Italy in April/May 2013, my husband and I would like to spend some time in the countryside. This part of the trip would (hopefully!) be the most relaxing. I envision renting a car and driving to check out small towns, stopping for a picnic with wine, bread and cheese, maybe visiting a winery or enjoying some pool time (if our lodging has a pool and the weather cooperates), and having a wonderful dinner somewhere. We might even be up to do some bicycling or walking/hiking, as we love being active outdoors. Probably staying in an agriturismo or B&B in the middle of nowhere, 3 nights or so. We will definitely be on a lodging budget - thinking a max of $150/night.

What are your thoughts on Tuscany vs. Umbria to fulfill our goals? For context, we will probably start in Venice, head to the Bologna/Parma area (to feed our foodie obsession), then this countryside section, and finish up in Rome.
