Here is my first draft of our 3 days in Tuscany.
Day 1: La Spezia to Pisa, stop in Lucca, stop in Florence (we have been before, just want to give friends a brief overview) on to Montepulciano to use as a base for next 3 nights.
Day 2: Volterra, San G and Siena
Day 3: Time in Montepulciano, Montecino and maybe Arezzo?
Day 4: Half day visiting somewhere? before heading south to arrive in Rome in afternoon.
I decided on Montepulciano as a base on tripadvisor recommendations (although could have been just about anywhere else). Hoping there is a bit of life at night on our return from daytripping. It looks like we'll be backtracking a bit, so open to other recommendations on a base. Also the order of these days is open to shuffling around if you think it would work better some other way. (We do have a car rental). I guess it looks a bit full on, but we won't be looking in every cathedral, museum etc. just wandering and sitting and if any shops, shopping.
Any suggestions on modification would be gratefully accepted - I've been going round and round in circles to get to this point. Thx GBlyn
