Looking to go to Tuscany in Sept of 14. Taking the Mrs and my two beautiful girls age 10,12. We ALL love to cook and are hoping for a CHILL vacation vs a go go go vacation. Yes, a car to go into Pisa, Florence, etc would be nice. Seeing some museums will be nice. DOing a lot of nothing will be nice too!
My biggest concern is where to stay based on reviews and value. I have heard there are farm villas where you get to cook with the host family, but I'm having a HECK of a time finding these online. I'm not locked into staying in Lucca, but I have heard good things. I plan to likely fly in, out of Pisa.
