    Default 6 Days in Tuscany

    Hi there, I am planning a honeymoon to Tuscany in early July. Most likely my flight will arrive Florence at 7.30pm. What I wanted to do is having 1 or 2 days driving trips, vineyard, olive groves visit. I would like to have 1 or 2 nights vineyard stay too. The destination I would like to cover are:

    - Florence;

    - Siena (most likely will base there);

    - Chianti

    - Val d’Orcia


    How would you recommend the the itinerary like? Do you recommend me to drive all the days? Budget for a night stay best maintain at 100EUR, max 130EUR.

    Default Honeymoon in Tuscany

    Buongiorno,

    I suggest that you base yourself for two nights in Florence - you get in late, just head over to your hotel, check in and either crash or go out for dinner.

    Enjoy one full day, a second night and then pick up your car later in the afternoon and drive to your next accommodation.

    You can base yourself in Siena - though for your price range you might enjoy a b&b outside of Chianti - one with great views, and a bit of romance. From that base you can enjoy your vineyards, your olive groves, and visits to many of the major sites in Tuscany.

    Have a look at these places:

    or a self catering apartment:

    Hi Donna,

    Thank you very much! I'm writing down the flights as well below, and my initial plan:

    1st day
    19:30 Arrive Florence
    Overnight at Florence

    2nd day
    Florence Day Trip
    Overnight at Florence

    3rd day
    Drive from Florence
    1/2 day Radda in Chianti
    1/2 day Siena
    Overnight at Siena

    4th day
    1/2 day Siena
    Driving to Montepuliciano and overnight (B&B with winery/olive groves)

    5th day
    1/2 day trip to Val d Orcia
    Overnight at Montepuliciano

    6th day

    Sounds like a bit rush but that's the time I have. Do you think this is doable? Or shall I plus/minus somewhere?

    Hi -

    your itinerary looks fine.

    I know you indicate a B&B vineyard for your stay in Montepulciano...but there is also something to be said for staying in the heart of this town (check out Politian Apartments) But believe me when I say I get the charm of a vineyard and olive groove (my place looks over a vineyard and I am surrounded by olive trees...I love breakfast in my garden) so you can have a look at Il Greppo, very nice.

    Have Fun!!

    Thank you Donna! Il Greppo looks fine. I'll take a look in it. Thank you!

    Ciao!

    What about to have a base directly in the Chianti region? Volpaia is the finest choice.

    I can suggest to visit Pisa, Pistoia, Lucca, Montefioralle, Monteriggioni, the area surrounding Montaione and Iano di Montaione, Baratti, Castiglione della Pescaia.

    I will still prefer to base in Montepulciano as there are a few small towns around I would like to discover. However travel dates changed! Now I'm staying from 28th-30th June. Really need an outdoor place to sit and relax, drinking wine & enjoy good food with my husband after the hectic wedding planning
