Splendido

My trip to Portofino was a day trip from Santa Margherita – so I stayed in Santa Margherita, went for the day to see the harbor, had lunch in Portofino, and went back at night.

Having said that, these are the things you could do if you’re staying in Portofino…

Tuscany, Italy توسكانا

Tuscany (Italian: Toscana, pronounced [tosˈkaːna]) is a region in central Italy.

If you are planning a trip around Tuscany, a car will be required. Some parts of Tuscany can be reached with public transportation but many of the small villages waiting for you to be explored are not.

This is a an itinerary example of how you could do Tuscany, as I always recommend, try to customize the trip as whatever suits you and live your own experience 😉

هالمخطط هو مثال يساعدكم لتخطيط رحلتكم لتوسكانا في ايطاليا, لكن ومثل كل مره أنصح البحث عن الوجهات وتغيير هالمخطط على حسب اهتماماتكم

Arrival city: Florence

Florence

If you plan on staying in Florence, check out our Florence post here to get some ideas. You do not need a car while in Florence, as everything is walking distance, you could rent a car on your last day in Florence.

Pisa

After Florence, your next stop could be Pisa in the morning to explore the famous Piazza dei Miracoli, where you’ll be able to finally admire the famous Leaning Tower up close.

 

Lucca

Lucca

Lucca is very easy to reach both by car as well as train from both Pisa and Florence.

Lucca is also home to several annual events and manifestations that always attract people from everywhere, such as the Summer Festival. Concerts by internationally renowned artists enliven different locations of the city usually on July, while another renowned event, Lucca Comics & Games, usually takes place in late October/early November.

Siena

“A Step back to Medieval Tuscany”. The city is easy to reach and is suitable for a day trip

 

And since you’re around.. it is worth checking out:

Portofino

I stayed at Santa Margherita and went to portofino for the day and to have lunch, then took off to our next destination.

Cinque Terre

I absolutely loved and recommend Cinque Terre. However, for Cinque Terre, you must identify whether you wanna see the 5 Terre’s or only the recommended ones. Checkout our Cineuq Terre post here.
