Lonely Planet Tuscany Road Trips by Lonely PlanetA pretty good overview of what you can find in the Tuscany region, while driving your own or rental (hired) vehicle.
I have Lonely Planets Italy guide and also the road trip guidebook that covers the entire country of Italy. What this one does is combine road trips specific Tuscany (they are also found in the more comprehensive guide) with detailed city guides found in the Italy country guide. This guide also includes some details on smaller cities and towns that are not found in the others.
If you have a more general purpose guidebook, plus a more comprehensive road trip guide, this one is probably not necessary. But if your travel is mostly contained in the Tuscany region, this one may be worth your purchase.

With its lyrical landscapes, world-class art and a superb cucina contadina farmer's kitchen , the Tuscan experience is perfectly in symbiosis with the land. Read More. Ever since the Etruscans dropped by to party and stayed, Tuscany has seduced. The Romans stocked their grain silos here, Christians walked stages of a medieval pilgrimage route, and Napoleon plundered art and suffered terribly in exile in a beautiful neoclassical villa with fig trees and sea view on the paradisiacal island of Elba. Florence's historic churches and monuments were a key stop for British aristocrats on 19th-century Grand Tours — and remain so. And at sundown when the River Arno turns pink, whether you like things old-fashioned and simple or boutique chic, this handsome city will oblige.

This road trip takes in a classic Tuscan mix of world-class art, medieval architecture, gorgeous countryside and outstanding food and wine. Devote three days to exploring Renaissance Florence. Visit the Uffizi and meander the Arno riverbanks. On the third day, lose yourself in the Oltrarno's ancient web of squares and alleys laced with artists' workshops or head into off-the-tourist-trodden-track San Frediano. On day four, shift down a gear to go slow in 16th-century walled Lucca. Rent a bicycle to leisurely explore enchanting cobbled streets and graceful, butter-coloured piazzas.
