4 days based in Florence area

markadamowicz | Jan 24, 201103:04 PM

Hello and thanks in advance for any help.

I will be in Florence around 24 June - 28 June.

I am thinking basing myself in Florence with one day in Florence and 3 days making day trips around the area. Overnights if necessary.

I've read about Sienna, Lucca, Moltepulciano, Panzano, Montalcino.....they all seem equally beautiful.....

I'd like to go to Panzano to see Dario Cecchini's butcher shop (the irnoy is he will be doing a demo tomorrow night near Boston, USA about 20 minutes from my house and it is sold out! 32 person waiting list!!!!) and a friend has recommended the Cennatoio Winery nearby Panzano as well....

I know I need more time, but 4 days will do it as I will take the 5th day to go to Venice....

I'd be happy seeing Florence's mesuems and churches in a day and spending the other 3 days driving around Tuscany eating in small towns and going to vineyards. This is as much of a food trip as anything else to be completely honest.

Thanks again,

Mark Adamowicz

ANY SUGGESTIONS or sample itinieraries would be much much appreciated.
