5 Days in Tuscany


New member

I am seeking advice on a 5 day trip to Tuscany with my husband.

Neither of us have been to Tuscany and I am not sure how we should divide our time and where we should base ourselves.

We love the outdoors, and love to drink (too much) wine, but have heard the streets of Florence are not to be missed.

Should we base ourselves in Chianti, Florence or Siena?

How would you structure these days?

Any advice would be fantastic!

How to divide your time


I apologise for the late reply!

If this is your first time into Tuscany then I suggest you divide your 5 days with 2 in Florence and 3 in Tuscany.

I would actually suggest changing your base, I know its not necessary but there is something special about waking up in both the city and in the countryside - they both have so much to offer.

Here is an itin for 2 days in Florence that you could use as a reference: https://www.visitflorence.com/itineraries-in-florence/two-days-in-florence.html

and then this itinerary in Tuscany for three days has some helpful ideas: http://www.discovertuscany.com/itineraries-in-tuscany/three-days-in-tuscany.html

Buon Viaggio,
