Where to Stay in Tuscany???

Hi again

Working on our 16 day Italian Honeymoon (first timers to the country). I will be staying 5 nights in the Tuscany region and not sure where to stay. We will be coming from Naples either by car or train and then renting a car while visiting the region and then departing to Cinque Terre by train.

So, where to stay? We have a tight budget and would like to find something that is not in the heart of lets say Florence for instance but still close enough to visit all the amazing cities. We would like something quaint, maybe a farmhouse or rent a house. Something to that affect. Our budget is around 100-150 Euro a night.

Any ideas?

Thank you so much!
Ann

If you want to stay in a farmhouse then you'll definitely need to have a car. Have you done any searches on the internet, looking for "farmhouse in tuscany" or something similar?

What time of year will you be there?

Not sure how much this is now but it is really a great place - Locanda dell Amarosa. I think their website is amarosa.it

Hi,
Locanda dell Amarosa is beautiful but it is out of our budget and we are looking at 5 nights.

Thank you so much,
Ann

forgot to say that this is about $86 usd a night. Bed and breakfast. You do need a car but the train is close enough that all you need to do is drive down the hill and park- then take the train to florence/pisa/ cinque terre/ Lucca OR you can drive and check out the little tuscan villages

Why not stay in Lucca- so romantic and you can get to most cities via Pisa Centrale by train. Cars are a pain in most Italian cities as the medieval hearts are traffic free.

Hi--we stayed here for 3 nights. We did have a car, but the intercity bus passes right nearby and you can get into Florence fairly easily, I believe. I think the price fits your budget, even though it was a lot cheaper back in 2000. Just a side observation, but both Italy and France seemed to have a precipitous increase in all prices when they changed from lira and francs to euros.
