First trip to Italy and we are looking at spending about 10 days of it in Tuscany. After a few days in Rome we plan to take a train to a place in Tuscany where we can get a rental car for the 10 days.
I was thinking about setting up somewhere around Lucca to see, Florence-Pisa- maybe a day trip to Cinque Terre.
Then set up in Siena to see- Montepluciano- Volterra-Perudia/Assisi, Cianti area
Then return the car and take train to Venice for the rest of the trip. We would rather not drive in big cities at all. But we like driving the countryside
-What are your opinions about this plan?
-should we spend a few days near Grosseto to see the coast there?
- Am I missing something I should consider in that area?
We will be there end of June early July and are planning to be in Siena on July 2nd to see the race/festivities (even if it will probably be crazy at that time it is something we would love I think)
