    Default Florence (area) for 7 days May 2020 with NO car.

    Hi all

    I am planning a 7 day trip to Florence next May. I will be traveling from Bristol to Pisa by plane and then train to Florence. I would like to have a mix of relaxing at the accommodation and sightseeing. I would like the accommodation to be quiet and relaxing, with maybe local food in their restaurant and also a heated pool or Jacuzzi for the relaxing days. I can see lots of Agriturismo's that offer similar to what I need, but I do not want to use a car, just buses and trains. Can anyone recommend somewhere with that in mind please ? I want to visit Florence mainly and Siena if feasible.

    Thanks everyone

    Default No car in Florence

    Buongiorno,

    two places immeadiately came to mind that would keep you just a bit out of the city, but give you access to Florence and good transport to Siena:

    Buon Viaggio,

    Take a look at Villa di Lilliano - it is definitely a relaxing place and you can reach it easily with bus and a short (albeit uphill) walk from the bus stop: https://www.discovertuscany.com/tusc...-lilliano.html

    Otherwise La Paggeria: https://www.florenceaccommodation.com/la-paggeria.html
    The bus stop to Florence is very close to their entrance. They have the Jacuzzi ;-)

    From Florence you can catch the bus to Siena: https://www.discovertuscany.com/sien...out-a-car.html

    Default Florence

    I only have 2 days to see Florence. Recommendations? I'm quite interested in the history and architecture of the city. I don't believe I need to spend a lot of time at the Uffizi. I would like to see the David at the Accademia, but not sure if I'd be interested in much more there.

    Ciao sonwolf33,

    With just two days in Florence, you could do a few hours (1-2) at the Uffizi one morning, then at the Accademia the next morning (so you don't do them one right after the other). Take a look at this 2 day itinerary for things to see as you walk along the city:
