Val d'orcia How much time?

Jump to last reply

This is the kind of dilemma I like to have - one where you can't really lose. We have finally convinced another couple who have never been to Italy to join us for 10 or 11 days. They like the countryside more than cities, as we do.

We are thinking of arriving in Florence, spending two days there and then stopping in Volterra on the way to the Val d'orcia. The main question is - should we spend 7 days in the Val d'orcia or 4 days and find a different area for the next three? And if a different area where would you recommend. We would finish with a final day in Florence - or perhaps two, one in Florence and one in and around Fiesole.

We have been to Florence and the Val d'orcia before, but that was 10 years ago.
