DISTANCES:

The whole area is rich in historic & cultural interest.

 

The charming city of Lucca – 25 mins by car, retains elements of its age & history amid its many churches, imposing palaces & in the secluded squares one finds sophisticated shops & restaurants.

 

Florence by car - 1hr 15mins. We recommend travelling by train (a doddle) as parking can be tiresome in the City.

 

The Chianti area between Florence and Siena (2 hrs by car - each way) is one of the most beautiful in Italy. A long day, but do'able!
