Looking for a great central place to stay in Tuscany.

My husband and I are visiting Italy in May 2013 and we have some spare time between our tour and a cruise. We would like to rent a car and spend some time in Tuscany. Any suggestions on a great place to stay in country, which is central for some sightseeing. Also is it possible to do a day trip to Cinque Terre from Tuscany? Our tour does not go there.

1. Re: Looking for a great central place to stay in Tuscany.

Hello Jen_Lyn; from San Miniato it is possible to reach Pisa, Lucca, Pistoia, Vinci and Florence with an approx. tourist drive of 45 minutes, San Gimignano in 1 hour, Volterra and Siena in 1 hour and 15 minutes, Arezzo, Val d'Orcia in 2 hours and Monterosso in CT in 2 hours and 30 minutes. San Miniato itself is medieval and rich of art treasures, but you could stay 3 to 4 km. outside the town centre immersed in the country.
