pet-friendly places in Tuscany
Ciao AJ, sounds like you have a wonderful tour of Italy planned!
For beaches, just head to the Tuscan coast as you head up from Rome into Tuscany, you'll have your pick along the way. The most popular among Tuscans themselves are the ones in Maremma up to Livorno.
As for pet-friendly accommodation, you can look at this list of pet-friendly accommodation in Tuscany - when you reserve make sure to tell them you have a small dog along so they know to expect it.
You won't find problems traveling with your small dog but if you want to make sure you head toward a pet-friendly beach or restaurant, you can search on
Turisti a 4 Zampe, a new website by the Italian tourism ministry that has collected contact details to create a nation-wide database of all places that welcome pets!
