One Week in Tuscany

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are in the beginning stages of planning a trip to Italy next May. The initial plan is 3 days each in Rome and Venice with 7 days in Tuscany in between, including a day in Florence. I realize we won’t get to see a lot of Florence, and although we are interested in art and history, we don’t want to spend every day touring museums. We will rent a car when we leave Rome and drop it off in Florence, then catch the train to Venice unless the consensus is to keep it until we get to Venice.

Please suggest a good itinerary for this portion of the trip. We want to get out and see the countryside, small towns, a winery or two, beautiful scenery, etc. The idea of staying in small B&Bs or a farm sounds appealing. I would like to include Siena, San Gimignano, Pisa and Cinque Terre, but I’m afraid Cinque Terra may be too much and too far. I don’t want to spend the entire 7 days in one spot, but I also don’t want to race from place to place. We like to think of this portion of the trip as an adventure.

Any suggestions or guidance is greatly appreciated.
