exploring Umbria and Tuscany

Hi-

I am planning to be in Assisi from Thursday- Saturday in May. Do you think that it would make sense to rent a car to explore the surrounding area (possibly more of Umbria and a bit of Tuscany) while there? If so, what would you recommend?

Thanks!

Yes, if you feel comfortable driving in Italy. There are any number of fascinating places to see within easy drives from Assisi including Gubbio, Spello, the ceramics center of Deruta, Chocolate tours in Perugia, wine tours in Torgiano, the duomo in Orvieto, Todi, etc. While you would not stay here, this website has good info on day trips in the area: www.anticavetreria.net/ Hope this helps.

In narrowing down how to spend your four days in Umbria, what is most important to you on this trip? What do you love to do?

That will determine where you'd go so your enjoy your time in Umbria to the max. If you like exploring towns, it may work for you to take the trains depending what towns you'd like to visit.

If you like exploring the countryside, a car is a must so you use your short time well.
