Tuscan base for part of our honeymoon!


New member
My fiancé and I are booking our honeymoon which will be this July time.

Our plan is to spend 4 days in Florence then base ourselves somewhere in rural Tuscany for 6 nights before travelling to Riomaggiore to spend the last 3 nights on the coast.

I'd love some advice as to where to base ourselves in Tuscany for this main middle part of our trip.

We will have a rental car to drive from Florence and around.

We would love to stay somewhere not too flashy but suitable for a romantic break. We love good food, wine and walks. And somewhere with other areas accessible by car to explore.

Any advice would be so appreciated.

In honor of the month of romance - we have just updated our top ten romantic picks in Tuscany & Chianti, so have a read through this article for a few ideas:


And then I suggest that you have a look at this article for a few places in the Chianti area:


6 days is a perfect stay in Tuscany if you are looking just to take it easy and get some quality time together. If you are not adverse to change location at least once, three days in Chianti or in the countryside near Florence and three days by or south of Siena will give you a wodìnderful overview of the region.

Buon Viaggio,
