    Default 3 to 4 days Tuscany

    Good Afternoon, This is my first time using a forum. Thank you so much for the discover tuscany website. It is excellent. I need help. We are a family of 4. Our daughters are 14 and 13. We have been to Italy 3 times including Florence and Pisa. We are planning a 3 to 4 day trip to Tuscany at the end of July 2018. Any suggestions on where to go. Preferably not Florence or Pisa. We want to take cooking classes and go horseback riding. We enjoy the beach as well. I am also looking for teenage friendly things to do. Any suggestions of places to stay would be greatly appreciated. We would love to book a house or villa. Thank you all for your time in advance.

    Ciao Kristineake and welcome to the forum!

    There is a lot you can do, if you're not interested in Pisa and Florence that's super fine and gives you the chance to explore new areas off the usual routes. You could base yourself not far from the coast so that you can head to the beach for day outings but consider that the end of July is HIGH season for the beach, so if you want to stay anywhere there you have to already look into booking a place. Use this as a starting point:
    You can base yourself in Maremma in souther Tuscany, further north in what is called the Etruscan Coast (which might be the better option considering the age of your kids) or even further north around the Versilia area - there is more of a nightlife in these last two if you base yourself in a town right on the coast.
    Another alternative is to stay on Elba, which is magnificent but in July can get to feel crowded: https://www.discovertuscany.com/elba/
    More than anything, know that prices are the highest in this season along the coast.

    You can also base yourself a bit inland, like in Volterra which is not a far drive straight west to the coast.
    Or in Maremma inland, the same applies. In Maremma you could spend a few days exploring: the hot springs at Saturnia, the towns of Pitigliano, Sovana and Sorano and the coast. You might also like going to see the Tarot Sculpture outdoor garden near Capalbio.
    In the beginning stages of planning to come to Tuscany? Make sure to read Where to Stay in Tuscany WITH a car and Where to Stay in Tuscany WITHOUT a car for ideas on where to stay in Tuscany. Also read When to Visit Tuscany to decide when is the best times for your visit.
