Usually I plan well in advance for our trips but there has been a death in the family and with 1 week to go I don't have anything. So,please help me out.....
We are arriving in Rome in early Oct and will have 7 days to explore Tuscany.Here's a brief itinerary I tried to put together after doing some reading. We don't want a military march through Tuscany but a much needed fun and relaxing vacation
Day 1: Pick up car in Rome from FCO and drive to our villa in San Vicenzo a torri ( near Montelupo). Any recommendations on where to stop and take breaks on the way?
Day 2: Explore. Radda,Gaiole in Chianti
Day 3: Explor Castellina, Greve and maybe Panzano
Day 4 ; Montalcino, Pienza, Montelpulciano ( I'm not sure but maybe this is too much)
Day 5: San Gimignano and Volterra ( again if too much , maybe skip San gimignano)
Day 6: Lucca, (maybe Pisa also)
Day 7: Arezzo
I wanted to see Cortona too but don't know if it can be done.
We would like to visit 1 or 2 wineries and thermal hot springs.
Oh! I forgot to mention we've been to Siena on an earlier trip.
I would really appreciate any and all suggestions.
Thank you !
