8 Days in Florence


New member
We are spending 8 days in Florence in October. We have our schedule pretty well set and we find we have an open day. We are planning on day trips to Sienna and Lucca. We have already visited Volterra and Pisa, so we are looking for suggestions for another day trip.

You don't tell us what else you have planned as far as day trips during the 8 days so we likely will suggest something already on your list -- these are some additional ideas (maybe one or two might not be on your list yet!):

- San Gimignano
- Greve, Panzano and Castellina
- Arezzo and Cortona
- Pistoia and Prato
- Mugello for chestnut festival

Thanks for your response.

We don't have any other day trips scheduled. We have already visited San Gimignano, Greve and Castallina. We are not familiar with the other places you have mentioned. The chestnut festival in Mugello sounds interesting
