Florence to Tuscany Day Trip Advice

Jump to last reply

A few weeks ago I created a post about driving out of Florence to Tuscany on a day trip. I got a lot of advice not to do that. The main reason was that the driving would be very tricky. I told this to a fellow traveler and they completely disagreed. I'll chalk it up to a difference of opinion. None of that may matter because the car rental place wants the car back by 19:00. This IMO does not leave much time for exploration. I have no problem paying for additional days and keeping the car overnight, however I will have no place to park it when I am back in Florence. I have visions of stopping off on winding roads to take scenic pictures of the landscape. I am a wanderer and am not one for schedules and itineraries. Cost is a factor in this trip otherwise I would use the widely recommended Luca of Hills and Roads. This leads me to two options: A.) I rent a car and have my freedom but I have to bring it back to Florence by 7PM. B.) I use the bus system and set a schedule. If I were to use the bus system, How late do they run in the country? Has anyone rented bikes in any of the towns? Can you share advice on this? I'm inclined to less touristy areas. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you
