If you are based in central Florence then take a tour as you cannot have a rental car in central Florence and one day rentals are fearsomly expensive.

Or take the bus to have a full day in Siena(definately deserves it!) or the train to Pisa and Lucca!Very easy to do them on your own..

Greg is correct, they are both easy day trips to take using public transport from Florence.

I would definately do the self drive option. We just did that last week and it was wonderful. We got off the beaten path and experienced things you never would on a tour. The driving was pretty easy, but have a good map! We loved the freedom that it gave us.
