    An easy day trip (or half a day trip) from Florence is this pretty Tuscan hill town which will check all the boxes: Lively square, picturesque shops and best of all wine.

    An easy-to-do day trip from Florence...and it's worth doing. This could even be a 1/2 day trip. From the bus station you can grab a bus for 6 euros to the small town of Greve. The bus takes 1hr and will drop you at the central plaza. Even if you're only in Florence for a few days, this is your best shot for photos of the rolling green hills and spectacular views of wine country.

    Great wine, little city, beautiful country, fantastic wineries. Roads to get there, on the other hand, were not very "traveled" (some were just country roads).

    Various companies located in Florence offer bike riding/wine and olive oil tasting tours of the Chianti region (just outside of Florence). Many are very reasonably priced and the cost includes a van ride to the initial meeting point, all biking equipment, all tasting fees, and complementary lunch at a local trattoria. Guides are fluent in english and incredibly knowledgable on the history of the area.
