We will be in Italy in September. Will spend 5 days in Lake Como area, then 5 days in Venice and then 7 days in Tuscany area but have no idea where. Would like to find a central place and day trip from there. Will take the train from Venice to Florence, then would really like to experience Italy and not the touristy areas. Live like an italian for a week. Any ideas?? We like to bike and would love to explore Tuscany by bicycle if possible and not too difficult. Will also be open to renting a car or is bus service acceptable?? Any ideas are welcome and definitely appreciated. Thanks in advance.
