I have a trip coming this Oct to Italy, first time! I am flying into Venice and plan to stay in the city for 2 nights. From there I am heading to Florence city center for 2 nights. From there I am looking to do 3 nights in Tuscany rural area. I love the idea of staying in a farm house and traveling around to different wineries and visiting places to eat. Since I don't have a good grasp on Italy yet I want to make sure where I am staying is close enough to get around to different places. Right now I am looking at a place that is close to Greve in Chianti region. Any good day trip recommendations as well as places for dinner? Any suggestions about the route are appreciated. We are leaving that area to do 3 nights in Rome before we close the trip. Thank you!!!
