Having only been to Rome we initially thought of a long weekend in Venice or Florence and then thought combine the two and then I thought it would be great to add some of the Tuscan Countryside say Val D’Orcia. So its grown. Is this too much?
We like beautiful architecture and piazzas, finding winding streets with an authentic restaurant to taste local produce. We will visit the main sights like churches, galleries but would not spend days going to one after another. Interestingly we think one full day in Venice to take in the amazing layout will be enough for us and would prefer to spend more time elsewhere.
So fly in to Venice stay 2 nights
Day 3 train to Florence stay 3 nights
Day 6 hire car to Montepulciano or around stay one night
Day 7 drive to Siena one night
Day 8 train to Pisa or Florence to fly back
Appreciate any thoughts, thanks.
