    Default advice for discovering Tuscany

    Hello everyone, i ask for your help please in planning a late holiday/honeymoon for early august... we wish to spend 2 weeks discovering the region by car. As our base we wish to stay in a cosy hotel, close to a beach, preferably one that offers meals. We want to alternate between beach and sightseeing having a nice friendly comfortable hotel as a base... I don't know the region at all, so I ask for advice for hotels/ villages where we could stay... we do not need nightlife, neither children's facilities, just sandy beaches and friendly family atmosphere... any help and advice would be highly appreciated.

    Default Honeymoon in Tuscany


    August will be a little tough to find romantic, tranquility - but that doesn't mean it isn't possible:

    You might look into dividing your vacation with two weeks on the island of Elba - our absolute favorite is :


    sandy beaches & close to restaurants.

    Then while on the mainland you could look at a few which are between the coast and many exciting little towns:


    in particular:

    You might want to do a few days on the end of your holiday in Florence - or if you want something with a tad bit of culture but still low-key, then look at Lucca or Siena.

    Start with full relax on the island - 5 days ? then 5 - 6 days in an agriturismo for some soft travel and then finish with a town.

    Buon Viaggio

    Well-planned trips are always successful. I always try to find out as much as possible about the country/place I am going to visit. I plan all the details thoroughly before the trip. By the way, using trip planner sites is a good idea https://travelsites.com/trip-planner/
