For those that have several days to travel and explore, I recommend the following:
Day 1 -
How to Get Around Florence
One Day Excursion to Florence
Day 2 -
We have also endlessly discussed these two medieval cities, thus, here is a link with some information that will help you design your itinerary whilst visiting these two places.
The Medieval City of Skyscrapers
Day 3 -
The third and final day we dedicate to Lucca and Pisa. You can also visit these two cities in the same day; Pisa during the morning and Lucca during the evening.
As I have earlier iterated there are a plenty of links available from our blog regarding these two cities to help make your trip the best ever.
Routes Around Northern Tuscany
Enjoying Tuscany's Thermal Spas and Springs (Northeast Tuscany - Pisa and Lucca)
This route that we have selected is designed to make Florence the base for different journeys.
Not having a car would make these journeys quite difficult with the proposed timeframes. I would always recommend hiring a car when holidaying in Italy so that you don’t miss a single corner of the region due to immobility or discomfort.
As always I hope this information has been useful in preparing you for your holiday in Tuscany.
