      I'm not getting email responses from bike rental companies doing business in the Arezzo area. I'd like to make direct contact with a bike shop in Arezzo. Is anyone aware of a shop that rents bicycles in Arezzo? I want to rent bikes for a 5 day September 2014 tour ending up in Siena.

      Day trip to Siena and other Tuscan town(s) using Public Transport from Florence

      Tuscany Apr 16, 2014 at 10:55 AM

      Hi friends

      I will be staying in Florence for 4 nights in the month of May. I plan to sightsee Florence on 2 days and take a day trip to Lucca and Pisa on the 3rd day. On my 4th day I wish to visit Siena and some picturesque countryside which is often associated with Tuscany. Also in the afternoon I would like to do some Wine Tasting at a decent vineyard. I have heard Chianti is the place for wine and is between Florence and Siena. However, I would need to do this using Public transport. Please let me know if this can and should be done using Public transport or should I consider spending more to rent a car with a guide or a guided tour. I do not have any knowledge of any Tuscan town which could be combined with Siena for the above, so I am open to all suggestions.

      Thank you

    • What to take to Tuscany for a 2 week trip on the last 2 weeks in April

      Tuscany Apr 3, 2014 at 6:06 PM

      I will be traveling to visit my daughter in Tuscany the last 2 weeks in April. I will be staying with her but will be going to Cinque Terre for 2 days, Pitigliano for 2 days and some other day trips. I will be doing a lot of walking and some hiking on the trip. I may eat out in some local trattorie but probably not in any fancy ristorante I have been in Tuscany on a few other trips so I will probably not be spending much time in churches .. I like to travel light so I will only be taking a carry on and will probably do my laundry half way through the trip. Any suggestions for what clothes I should take with me?

    • Pinger in Italy

      Siena Apr 12, 2014 at 10:00 PM

      Does anyone know for sure whether the Pinger phone/texting app is supported in Italy? We live in the US and will soon be in Italy (Rome and Siena) for three weeks. I would like to avoid international charges on my iphone. But I can't seem to find a website that tells me if Italy has Pinger. The app is free and it looks like you can call and text to the US from many countries free of charge with WiFi. But I can't find a way to know if Italy is one of those countries. Thanks for any help you can give!

      Radda in Chanti, Italy

      by erictilley Online Now Jun 29, 2004 at 9:55 PM

      Howdy fellow VT'ers! I am on my way to Spoleto but I have a couple of days before I have to be there and instead of staying in Rome, I thought I would try to get to Radda in Chianti to visit the vineyards of my favorite wine, Terrabianca. I've tried the Terrabianca website, but they have not returned my email yet. Besides, I trust you guys more! I have never been to Italy and I posted a question about flight info that y'all were SUPER in answering! I really do not want to rent a car if I can take a train instead. So I would need to know how to get to Radda from Rome, (via Siena?), then from Radda to Spoleto. Hotel info would also be great. Any advice is welcome. Grazi! Ciao!
