    • Florence to Siena

      Florence Feb 21, 2015 at 5:06 PM

      Late April trip. Headed out of Florence on a Saturday around 10:30am to Siena with an overnight in Gaiole in Chianti. Planning on a couple of wineries on the way to Gaiole, and a couple on the way Sunday from Gaiole to Siena. How long should we plan for a winery tour/tasting? Are they open on Sundays? Suggestions for a decent itinerary that includes a lunch at a winery each day? Thanks!

    • Recommended hotels please

      Florence Mar 3, 2015 at 10:01 PM


      we're planning to visit Florence somewhere in mid Oct this year. Looking for a hotel in a safe neighbourhood, 10-15 walk to SM train station, with safe in room and safe baggage storage. We're going out of town for another 2 nights before going back to Florence.


    • Hotel areas

      Florence Yesterday

      I were advised by friends to stay away from hotels which are near to the train stations in Italy, for the reason that most of the area are mostly the glitzy part of town. It is not suitable area for family.

      Just to confirmed and to ask for other traveller's observations. Have you observed the part of neighbourhood in which the hotel is in ?

      Is Hotel Bonaficio and Hotel Donatello in the such area ?

      Thanks so much for inputs

    • Seeking name of women's store in Montepulciano

      by lbatters Online Now Jul 3, 2010 at 11:16 AM

      Early last month, I was visiting Montepulciano, a beautiful Tuscan town. I found it full of interesting, beautiful shops, and lovely things to see. Just as I was leaving, my friend told me about a terrific women's store and I am anxious to try to find out its name. It was L shaped, my memory is that much of it was in white, it had home furnishings, but also clothing by Liviana Conti, a Milanese designer I knew nothing about, but whose clothing is terrific. I was yanked from the store before I could make a purchase, but would like to know the name of my first stop next time I visit Montepulciano. I have searched the web, but can find no listing of shops in Montepulciano. I'll be grateful for any help I can receive from my fellow tourists (or residents). Thanks!

      Suggestions for a day at the coast from Montepulciano

      by happydancer Online Now Aug 23, 2009 at 12:21 PM

      We want to spend one day on the coast and I see that Grossetto is not to far away, but can't find anything much about it. Please suggest a nice day at the beach for us. We don't want to spend a lot of time driving so we have ruled out Cinque Terre. thanks

      Name of Cemeteries?

      by nataliegoestojapan Online Now Jul 30, 2008 at 3:52 AM

      Can anybody tell me the names of the cemeteries I visited in Montepulciano? The first one was at the entrance to Viale della Rimembranza and the other was on Via Emilio Giorgi (and the name included the word "South"). I can't find my map of Montepulciano, and am completely at a loss for the names.

    • Name of Shop

      by scf68 Online Now Dec 12, 2006 at 7:37 AM

      When we were in Montepulciano we visited a wonderful shop with wines, cheese, salami and a prepackaged Bruschetta that you could sample. The store was on the left, near the start of the main shopping street. They also had wines and salami for sale. The very back of the shop had racks of the cheeses - some looked black. I would like to be able to contact this shop to see if they ship internationally (to the U.S.A.), but we can’t find the name of the shop. Can you recognize the shop from the descriptuion and send me the name and any contact information that you might have. (I do have a picture of the back of the store which I could send, but can't attach here.)

      We had a wonderful time in Tuscany and can’t wait to get back! Thank you for your assistance.

    • Montepulciano or San Gimignano?

      by St.Anne Online Now Feb 3, 2005 at 11:55 AM

      OK sorry for the spelling for some of the hilltowns. Here's our plan. We're leaving Siena for Lucca by car. Along the way we thought of stopping the abovementioned towns. I'm wondering amongst the 3 which should we spend more time at? San G sounds like a tourist place which surprises me since it seemed so small and tucked away. How about the other two? they are sorta on the way as well. thanks!
