Thanks to everyone for feedback on Florence - I have finally booked the first 4 nights there but need help with the next stage. We were planning on spending 1 or 2 nights after our initial 4 in Florence upon arrival in Lucca, then traveling onto Sienna where we will base ourselves for the next 3-4 nights. Here are some hotels I have been told about, read about in books (have checked general online search engines yet) - anyone know of these places, have comments, and/or additional suggestions????
Lucca Sienna -- Palazzo Ravizza
B&B La Romea
