Tuscany trip

HI everyone. I'm planning a trip to Tuscany with the mrs at the end of June for 7 days, flying in and out of Pisa airport.

Would like to try and mix up some days at the beach, with days sightseeing and exploring towns. Where would you suggest staying as a good base? Florence? Which are the best beach resorts in the area? We will be travelling around by train

Many thanks

Thanks very much. Viareggio looks very nice.

I had found a nice apartment in Pisa to rent for the full week and then just go on day trips to Viareggio, Florence, Lucca and Siena. Would this be a good idea or would it be better to stay in Florence?

Would only be using Pisa as a base really

Pisa is a good base for visits, and you can also take a day visit to Cinque Terre by Trenitalia train, enter Monterosso as destination www.cinqueterreonline.com
