I am heading to Italy in late August and fly into Venice and out of Rome. I plan to leave Venice on Wednesday morning and arrive in Rome Saturday evening, leaving Wed, Thurs and Friday to stay somewhere in Tuscany.
My preference is to stay somewhere in the countryside, get in a wine tour and visit somewhere on a day trip. Curious if anyone has any advice on what region to stay in, suggested day trips, ect. I think we'll avoid Florence just because it is not car friendly and we plan to take in Florence on a future trip. Was thinking somewhere near Sienna might be nice.
Any insight is much appreciated.
