Where would you stay in Tuscany??

I'm having a difficult time narrowing down the location i'd like to spend a 2 day trip between Florence and Rome.

I'm leaning toward Siena as a very centrally located city

but i'm still considering the Chianti's - Radda or Castellina in Chianti.

I'm departing from Florence, so perhaps

Day 1 I spend a day in the Chianti towns and then head to Sienna to sleep.

Day 2 Tour Sienna and San Gimignano - head back to Sienna to sleep

Day 3 visit Montepulciano and Montalcino - then drive on to Rome

Is this too eager?

So Chianti or Sienna?

For me, Siena. Just so beautiful and so much to see and do there. The Chianti towns are pretty enough but sometimes quite small and do not have the history nor treasures of Siena.

Make sure you know about ZTLs and have an International Driving Permit.
