This is a bit of a vague question but as ever, searching for ideas.
My partner and I have been to Florence before for 3 days and enjoyed it, that was 3-4 years ago. He says he wants to go to Tuscany for a break in mid/late May, I think that would be for 7-8 days. Looks like we will be flying into Pisa. I thought it would be nice to go back to Florence for a couple of days as I know he is keen to go to the art gallery for longer this time.
Question is...where else? What I know he wants is to get an apartment so we can buy our own food from the markets. It would be nice if we could hire bicycles to go cycling for a day or two too, although I don't want it to be too hilly. We could happily do 40k cycles as long as roads not too busy and not steep inclines! Is there a large-ish town we can stay in that maybe we can do all that and would be easy enough to get too? We don't really want to hire a car if we can avoid that.
Sorry, it's not a lot of info to go on. I'm off to read up on my LP Italy book tonight but thought I'd see if anyone had any great ideas.
