My family is traveling to Tuscany in August for about 8 days. We'd like to visit Florence and Pisa, but are more interested in traveling through other areas of Tuscany, perhaps staying in a farmhouse/vineyard/villa. We are interested in cooking, wine tasting, eating, and biking. Could you please suggest 2-3 towns in Tuscany where we could base ourselves? And the day trips we could do from these base towns? And cooking classes, wine tasting, etc that don't require a tour? Many activities I have found are tours that drive you to places, but since we will have a car, we'd rather go on our own. Thanks!
