I will be spending 8 days in July in Tuscany with my husband and two sons ages 10 and 8. it is our first time in Italy and we will be renting a car. I would like to have a home base with a pool. I have read nice things about Lucca and wondering if we should look for a place around there or should we be looking for a more central location in Tuscany, like Siena. We are planning this trip to be as kid friendly as possible. Beaches, walking, eating, sight seeing, relaxing. I really want to keep it simple and fun. We are also going to Rome and Venice for a few days before and after Tuscany.
