Coastal Town After Tuscany

Jump to last reply

We are planning our 2nd trip to Italy for early June next year. Typically and preferably we travel in May but because of life events, June it needs to be. We will have 14 nights. Initially I was planning to visiting Tuscany - hill towns and walled cities as we've already visited Florence on a previous trip- then Cinque Terre (or visa versa depending on what makes most sense. Then, I started to change my mind in favor of Sorrento over CT since it will be June.

My current plan would be to base in the Siena area for approx 4 nights then the Montepulciano area for approx 3 nights, leaving 7 nights for our last destination and getting back to an aiport.

Now however, I am wondering if we should choose another coastal town in say Grosseto, Livorno, Pisa or Lucca.

My husband and I love the water so a vacation is hardly complete if we don't have a chance to enjoy a drink while listening to the waves! We don't necessarily need or want to get in the water, but if it's hot that would be a nice option. We can use a car if needed or drop it off if that is best.

I would prefer an area with a nice water view - we don't need a "beach" - but I prefer a "town" we can stroll, eat, etc in the evenings. I am concerned that the CT area really won't offer that. My concern with Sorrento/AC is that it appears to be complex to get there after Tuscany as it would require a full day of travel. Also access to other historic cities or places of interest would be icing on the cake!

Is there a coastal town in closer proximity to our location that might meet our needs? We haven't made plane reservations and can do open jaw if that makes most sense.

Lastly, I am trying to squeeze Orvieto into the mix but haven't found a way to do that yet either, but I can save it for another trip if needed.
