I am in the midst of planning a very ambitious day trip through Val d’Orcia from Florence. I realize this area deserves much more than a day, but unfortunately it is all we can spare.
1. It looks like the only rental cars available are from the airport. Is this the most sensible location to rent from (we’re staying near the Uffizi)?
Is this too far and too much for one day? Is there an alternative itinerary suggested, our goal is to see the beautiful Tuscan countryside, some hill towns, and to pick up some good wine to take back to Florence with us.
We’d be willing to do a tour, but have been unable to find one that doesn’t include stops we’re uninterested in or isn’t outrageously expensive.
Thanks in advance for your help.
