We are wondering what's the best way to drive around Tuscany and Umbria countryside. May 31-June 22, 2022. About 3 weeks worth of time. We are blessed to travel, and as we have "greyed" we have shifted to a slower pace. No rushing about for us. LOL! We been to Italy a few times and have visited the major big cities. So no Rome or Florence on this trip.
We pick up our car in Rome Fiumicino airport. *Thanks to the person on another thread with the tip about Civita B! Maybe a drive by Civita B. on our way from Rome to Orvieto is all we need to do.* After 3 nights in Orvieto (we have parking at our Orvieto B and B) we move to our Umbrian base (Italian farm/ cooking school near Assisi) where we stay for 9 nights. Then we move to our Tuscan base (Italian farm near Pienza) where we stay for 8 nights. Then we return our car to Rome, Fiumicino Airport and depart for home. Shopped and shopped car rentals. Decided to rent our car from Auto-Europe. And wow...are prices high for 2022!!!
Looking for recommendations for drives from both our bases? What towns and villages would be must sees in Umbria and Tuscany? And of course great food and wine experiences. Thank you for any suggestions and advice. Happy travels, Monica
