Tuscany in August

Hi all,

My extended family is considering renting a house in Tuscany for a week this August (likely Aug. 9-16). I know that tends to be prime vacation season in Europe, so I'm wondering:

--Will everything nearby (day trips in Florence, Pisa, Bologna, etc.) be overwhelmingly crowded?

--Will secondary destinations be closed because all those people are traveling themselves? I recall summers in Europe meaning things are either crazy crowded or closed.

--Would it be ill-advised to try a 1-2 day venture into Rome? Or will that just be too nuts?

--Should I be booking my flights ASAP? Or is there a prime time to book, with a possible break in prices, in the next month or two?

Tuscany is very hot and also busy in August.

Rome is even hotter (the Romans leave their city in August)

But I don't expect any attraction etc. to close.

To much business walking around, from all across the world!
