We are travelling to Tuscany from La Spezia, and we want to end up in Florence so we can take the train to Rome. We are leaving La Spezia on the 3rd, and going to Rome in the morning on the 8th, so that leaves us with around 4.5 days in Tuscany. I'm thinking the last day can be in Florence, since we have to take the train the next day.
So with only 3.5 days, I was thinking 2.5 days along the coast and 1 day in the villa to visit wineries and hills.
Which Tuscan town along the coast would you recommend? Elba island seems nice, but I'm not sure if it's worth the travel.
Also, any recommendations on wineries in Chianti or Montepulciano?
I'm thinking about renting a car which would be better to get around in Tuscany. Would it be better to train to Pisa and rent there? Or another city?
Thanks in advance guys!
