My husband and I plan to visit Tuscany for three weeks in the month of April. We will be flying in to Florence but would like to make Lucca our home base. Additionally, we would like to spend a week in a beautiful town in the Chianti region. We hope to relax this last week, drink good coffee, discover a wonderful bakery, and take in the beauty of the region. Can you please recommend an itinerary starting with two days in Florence and ending in the Chianti region? What cities are a must see? Is Lucca a good base? Is the Chianti region the most beautiful for our relaxation purposes or is there a better one? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I should mention that we do not want to rent a car and will have to depend on public transport. We will also be traveling with our small Jack Russell Terrier. Thank you and have a wonderful day!
