    • Tuscany for 3 nights

      Florence Nov 2, 2015 at 7:54 AM

      we will only have 3 nights in Tuscany. My husband really wants to stay in Florence, and I on the other hand want to experience the Chianti region (Castellina). I think I will give him overnighting in Florence because he seems very excited about that. I need suggestions:
      We will arrive in Florence by train (coming from Venice) and can drop luggage at hotel and get started on sightseeing asap. I definitely want to visit Siena and would love to spend the last day touring some of the smaller villages in Chianti by car. We can rent a car for the day to tour Chianti and then drop off that night if possible. I don't mind hiring guides or purchasing tickets in advance for the more popular sites, so we can hopefully skip some of the long lines. I know this is a lot, but I don't want to give in for driving through those amazing villages in Chianti. I appreciate any advice.

      Taxi and/or car & driver for Lucca area

      by Sunshine64 Online Now Aug 28, 2012 at 12:45 PM

      A group of friends will be staying in a villa ~10km from Lucca in a few weeks. It has been suggested that we must have a car, but some of us are not interested in driving on our holiday. We might like to have more wine than we should :)

      I found the prices for Radio Taxi Lucca, and they don't seem that unreasonable, especially in going from Lucca TO the Villa. But the other direction has me more concerned.

      Does anyone have experience getting to and from Lucca this way? Or with using a car service such as Tau Touring? Is the taxi reliable/prompt when you call them from 10km out and ask for a pick up? Can you schedule in advance?

      All help greatly appreciated!
