Tuscany is not a region to visit for the weekend. Plan to spend 1-3 days in Florence, Siena and Pisa each, then drive to the coast and take a ferry to one of the islands for the beaches. After 10 days in Tuscany, you’ll really be feeling la dolce vita.
Wear layers, as the sun is hot during the day and it can get quite cool in the evenings. You should be comfortable and casual; this is the countryside after all. Pack light—one formal dress or shirt is enough.
Only renting a car will give you the full ability to explore the natural beauty and historic quality of the region, from vineyards to palaces. Be sure to request an automatic if you’re used to driving it, as most Italians drive stick shift. Of course, bike tours through Tuscany are a lovely alternative.

What People Are Saying About Tuscany
This tour was a lot of fun and very informative. I would definitely recommend that anyone who is on a first visit to Florence start out this way. You ride by a lot of the attractions so you get an idea of where things are and can decide what you want to revisit. You also receive a good historical overview so you know something about what you're going to see. As we continued on our visit of the city after the tour, we told many people about it and recommended that they try it. I've also already told friends in the U.S. about it.
Very good organized, wonderfull places inside Toscana! Best rating for : guides, WI-FI in the bus, panacota during lunch, assistance to find and use the shuttle to Pisa, driver of shuttle bus Negatives: Microphone in the bus was bad, it was difficult to understand the guide, have to be changed! Recommendations: taste the gelato on San Gimignano, buy souveniers from San Gimignano
The walking tour of Sienna was a lovely introduction to what Siena has to offer from the Duomo to the Campo and the Palio. Our guide Claudia was Sienese and provided a wealth of local knowledge. At 2 hrs plus, the length of the tour was just perfect and it brought Siena alive
Loved the tour, our guide Marzia had a lot of interesting stories of the town. The tour starts later because you walk with the guide to pick up the bikes at another stop. We took the 6 pm, after dark it's hard to get a good picture.
The tour went well over the 2 hours. It made Siena come alive and gave an understanding of the culture of this beautiful city.
