I would say driving around Tuscany is a bit more interesting than much of Lazio, puls it is easier to get out of the city and into beautiful countryside much more quickly there. One year Kristen and I spent a little over a week there, bookending a stay in the Chianti hills with weekends in Florence. There are tons of agriturismo in Tuscany, we stayed in an old small castle with olives and grapes growing on premise. On the food side, Rome has greater breadth and depth, more modern/cosmopolitan places, but Florence has Cibreo. Next year, friends who got married in Rome will celebrate their 10th anniversary there, and have invited all of the wedding guests to join them - Kristen and I hope to make it, but it's probably not in the cards for us. It has been just shy of a decade since I've been to either city, but when you decide, I can send a few recommendations for either.
