Tuscany vs. Positano

I will be spending time in Vienna and from there want to spend 4-5 days in Italy. My question is should I fly to Florence and take the train to Siena (home base) and explore Tuscany for a few days, or go to Positano and check out the Amalfi coast. I am so torn I was wondering what other people would do!

Why would you spend all that precious time and money doing what other people would do?

Truthfully I would do neither.

It really depends on what time of year you are going, whether or not you will want to rent a car and your interests.

Personally, I adore the Amalfi Coast and visit every chance I get. But if you are interested in renting a car, driving through the countryside and visiting hilltowns, then Tuscany would be a better place for you.

I am going in May. Probably will not rent a car if we go to Tuscany, we would hire a driver. We will want to go to Chianti and check out some of the wineries! I am leaning towards Tuscany because I have read of some of the hill towns that sound just magical. We have visited some in France, and they were some of my favorite places in the world.

I don't believe that it's a simple question. The charms of both places appeal to me and it's not a "which one" question. What one person likes isn't what another may like.

In May both places will be much easier to get round, although Tuscany really does need a car IMO. The AC is more easily done using the SITA bus.
