Kiwier,

Another thought: If it is stinking hot in Florence, you can see some fantastic Tuscan scenery by catching an air-conditioned bus to Panzano in Chianti, and after that, switching for a bus to Siena. You can take the train or bus back to Florence.

ok basically i would like to do some hiking, shopping, swimming if possible and scenary.

They don't allow swimming in Venice canals without a life jacket - bring your own from home. I know, I've tried!

Also beware of Acqua Alta, I've heard it's dangerous.

Not half as dangerous as Acqua Pazza.
I also love the subject heading. It's almost as good as "Are Florence and Venice worth it?
