Roundtrip in Tuscany - advise needed! (Florence)

Hello everyone,

My husband are going to Tuscany for his birthday week, so I am looking at itineraries for a week beginning of November and have some questions.

We want to fly from London to Pisa, spend a day there (with or without sleepover?), then drive to Siena and stay there for a few days to do daytrips to Chianti, San Gimigiano, Montepulciano, etc. We then plan to drive north to Florence, stay there for a day or 2 and then go further up to Verona and fly back from there.

My question is now: Would you recommend to have a car for the entire week or rather do some of the travel by train and/or bus? I am not sure how the situation with roads and traffic jams are on the itinerary I am planning. If we were to do some of the transportation by train or bus I would prefer direct connections.

I appreciate any info! Many thanks in advance!
