    Default Tuscany with car 4/7-4/17

    Hi. My wife and I want to go to Tuscany during early to mid April. I would like to have a single base to explore the region. I want to rent a car from the airport. Where should we fly into? My wife prefers cities; I prefer more a more laid back experience. Ideally we'll combine the both. We like good food, small, pretty towns, nice countryside, and just general exploring. I wouldn't mind being near some coastal towns. The main thing is I don't want the car becoming an albatross for us. My wife doesn't like walking too much so mobility is an issue. Is there a good centralized spot to be in that allows us easy access to say Florence or other smaller scale cities where driving to these sights won't be a problem with the car, like parking or restricted zones? What about a good location for taking trains and busses into some of the larger towns/cities in the region?
    We're not bread and breakfast types but we do like higher end type hotels, and preferably not the boutique type ones. Our limit would be $200-250 euros, less expensive is fine too. We'd like the hotel to include a nice breakfast in the price and hopefully for it to have an elevator. Thank you.

    Default April in Tuscany

    Buongiorno,

    Just the right way to go, a mix between the cities and the countryside.

    My suggestion would actually be to have at least two bases - though if you really want to enjoy the coast, I might even suggest three.

    Start your time in Florence, where you can actually avoid getting a car for the first couple of days and use the trains and buses to get around. There are several places you can stay that can accommodate the parking situation if you decide that you must have a car even in the city.

    as for a base outside of Florence, in a rather central area, look at

    I particularly like the shuttle bus option for visiting Siena, and it is in a good position for visiting Chianti, Val d'oriya, Arezzo, Cortona, Montepulciano and many little small towns along the way.

    I would suggest flying into Florence, though Pisa is a good backup airport for convenience.

    Buon Viaggio,

    Default Shuttle bus option

    Thanks for getting back. Can you explain further about the shuttle bus option to Siena.

    Default Shuttle bus

    Sure!!

    Everyday they offer a shuttle that leaves from the hotel after breakfast, drops you off in the centre and then comes back and picks you up in the afternoon.

    However, when you book or call the hotel they can give you the hours and times. It is a service that is included in the price
