My husband and I are visiting Italy next year for 3months. We want to base ourself in the Tuscany area for 3 weeks in June/July and do a lot of day trips etc. We will have a vehicle. We have had friends that did lived in the Scandicci area for 6 months and they said this was a really good location to explore. Also would you have any suggestion in relation to accommodation, looking for something that is self contained.
