Short on holiday days but want an Italian summer getaway?
A client recently came to us requesting a visit to Tuscany in June, to see Florence while also lapping up the sun on the Tuscan coast, though would not have access to a car.
Let me prewarn you that if budget is tight, I would certainly not recommend Florence at this time of year with limited accommodation availability due to excessive demand, as well as the average price per night being significantly upwards of £250.
Here's a look at what LUCCIOLA proposed using only independent B&Bs / hotels and public transport.
Day 1: Florence
Fly into Pisa (cheaper than Florence), take the 1hr taxi transfer to your hotel in Florence, where you will stay for the next 3 nights.
Day 1: Embrace your new surroundings, locally around Florence.
Day 2: Explore Florence
Day 3: Daytrip by Train to hilltop beauty of Arezzo (50mins)
Day 4: Lucca
Day 6: To the Tuscan Coast
Day 8: Time to fly
From Viareggio to Pisa Airport.
Drive Time: 30mins
Have a safe journey home and start dreaming up your next Italian adventure!
