Any assistance/advice would be greatly appreciated regarding our August trip!
We are Arriving and departing from FCO and will spend two nights in Rome to get rid of the jet lag and also spend the last evening in Rome before our flight. We will be renting a car and driving to to Montepulciano for a three night stay- looking forward to driving through the area for winery tours and food and will plan to visit Montalcino and Pienza.
We have five more nights before returning to Rome city center for a last evening before our flight and are trying to decide between spending the last five nights in Chianti to include day trips to Sienna, Volterra, San Gimiagno, and Florence or should we spend two nights in Chianti for winery tours and the last three nights in Florence ( we could get rid of the car and train it back to Rome).
We have visited Florence twice before and have managed to see the museums, Duomo and walked the city. Have never stayed overnight and would also enjoy being in the city center at night for dinner.
I know this is ambitious but the driving and city visits actually sound relaxing rather than hectic. Any input would be greatly appreciated!
