We are traveling to Florence from Rome via train, renting a car and then departing via train to Venice for a day before we return to the States. We would like to set up a base near Florence so we can make day trips to Chianti and Siena. We aren't looking for the "romantic/hidden gem" location plus we like to be within walking or close driving distance to have a glass of wine before turning in for the night. What neighborhoods should we be looking at that are close enough for day trips especially wine tasting? Anyone have any other tips?
