    Default Most logical way to travel in Tuscany; your trip suggestion of 7 days

    Greetings from Phuket, Thailand !

    I have read with much interest your suggestion for a 7 days trip to Tuscany. we plan to visit that region end of July/beginning of August.It will be our first trip to Tuscany and will rent a car in Florence

    I have made a tentative program as follows but have some practical questions:

    Arrival Florence:
    Wednesday July 26 - noon - Overnight in Florence
    Thursday July: 27 Full day Florence
    Friday July 28 : To Lucca and Pisa ( your suggestion indicates to Pisa first and then to Lucca;
    Question: Is visiting Lucca first not more logical from an itinerary point of view coming from Florence ?
    Friday July 28 overnight in Pisa
    Saturday July 29: 1 day in Chianti region
    Question: where to stay overnight in the Chianti region ?
    Sunday July 30: Morning San Geminiano onwards to Montereggione ?
    Question: Overnight stay in Montereggione ?
    Monday July 31: To Siena and overnight in Siena
    Tuesday August 1: Val D' Orica ?
    Question: which city to stay overnight ?
    Wednesday August 2nd: Arrezzo and Cartona
    Question: which city to stay overnight ?
    Thursday August 3rd: onwards to Rome

    Any suggestions on the above tentative program would be highly appreciated.

    Thank you so much for any advice

    -> If you are planning on staying in Pisa at night then yes, it makes sense to go to Lucca first. However, my experience is that Lucca has a special atmosphere that you can enjoy most when relaxed. So if it is the last stop for the day you can really enter into the town atmosphere. I know it adds a few km to your car ride to Chianti -- but I would actually flip-flop and do San Gimignano and Volterra o Monteriggioni and then Chianti.

    Friday July 28 overnight in Pisa
    Saturday July 29: 1 day in Chianti region
    Question: where to stay overnight in the Chianti region ?

    I would suggest two day as the B/B above - otherwise you are always packing your bags, it is central

    Monday July 31: To Siena and overnight in Siena
    Tuesday August 1: Val D' Orica ?
    Question: which city to stay overnight ?
    Siena!

    Wednesday August 2nd: Arrezzo and Cartona
    Question: which city to stay overnight ?
    both are ideal - Cortona is smaller and very picturesque.

    Thursday August 3rd: onwards to Rome


    Suggested modifications:

    Florence, sleep in Florence

    Pisa
    Lucca sleep in Lucca

    San Gimignano, sleep in Chianti

    Chianti, sleep in Chianti same place as last night

    Siena, sleep in Siena

    Arezzo & Cortona, sleep in Cortona

    Val d'orcia -> visit Pienza and Montepulciano sleep in Montepulciano


    Buon Viaggio,
