I need to decide between doing the Best of Tuscany Tour (Sienna, San Gimignano, and Pisa) on Friday or Monday. I know museums are closed on Monday, so is this the better day, or will most shops, etc. be closed in these small hill towns on Monday? I'm trying to maximize the amount of time I have to spend at museums in Florence, but also don't want to pick a bad day for this tour. No point going to these towns if things are closed. Definitely want that award-winning gelato in San G.
Thanks in advance to those that have enough local knowledge to assist.
