Perfect base in Tuscany for getting around but also having a home base that has shopping, culture and food! We were there right before the Palio meaning we got to see much of the pomp without the enormous crowds and inflated prices. Stay for a few days, relax, and enjoy this delightful hilltop town.

Pienza has a great view of the surrounding countryside and hills. I love the medieval architecture here. We drove around the countryside outside of Pienza to see the vineyards and hills. Some of the routes around Pienza are considered some of the most scenic routes in Tuscany.

One of the many charming cities in Tuscany. Arezzo was originally founded by the Etruscans so it has a long history of habitation. The main plaza is definitely worth checking out. It is massive, and has a unique tilt to it.

Wonderful little town in the outskirts of Florence. Etruscan settlement is breathtaking and it's a convenient place to stay away from the crowds. Spend an afternoon at least. Accessible by local bus from Florence for a few euros.

Catch the ferry to the hostel on Isola Polvese from this tiny fishing town. Stay for a while and visit the adorably local fishing museum, or take a boat trip out with local fishermen from the lake cooperative.
