    • Florence at Christmas

      Florence Oct 15, 2016 at 8:23 AM

      We are considering a visit to Florence from December 26 to Jan 1. This wil not be our first visit, but the first time spending a full week there. Any suggestions for activities? Any special holiday events? Should the weather be good enough for touring?

    • David Tomorrow?

      Florence Oct 20, 2016 at 3:42 PM

      We only have tomorrow afternoon (Oct. 21) and night in Florence before we fly out Saturday morning. I really want to see the statue David but I hear that the lines are always long unless you're on a tour. Will I be able to get into a tour that lasts just an hour or 2 if I don't get there until noon or shortly after tomorrow? What is the best way to set something up? (We do not have a phone here....)

      We plan to stay in an Airbnb apartment in Pont Vecchio. I would really appreciate your help with this as I don't want to spend our limited time waiting in line to see the exhibit. Also, do you have any other things that are nearby that would be quick and easy to see?

      Many thanks in advance!

    • Venice to San gim to Rome

      San Gimignano Oct 8, 2016 at 3:38 PM

      Hi, trying to figure out best way to do the rental car...should I train to Florence and rent a car there, or pick up the car in Venice and drive to s gim? Sounds like the drive isn't particularly scenic. And at the end of the week in San gim, we will be heading to Rome. I know not to drive there, so should I return the car in Florence, Siena, Orvieto, or Rome airport? We could take train from Florence, Siena or Orvieto. Thanks in advance,

      Via Francigena San Gimignano to Siena

      Tuscany Oct 5, 2016 at 2:16 PM


      I have 4 days in Tuscanny in mid october and I was thinking about doing part of the Via Francigena, more specifically San Gimignano to Siena, or Ponte d'arbia to San Quirico. I like to take photos so which one of these would be nicest in fall. Or any other 3 day walks recommended in fall in that area? From what I have read its quite feasible to do it alone as it is quite well marked and with signs, but I find very little information about doing it alone, mostly tours. I am planning on taking the bus to San Gimignano and starting the next morning, does that sounds ok?

      Warm regards

      Bicycle tours?

      by LauraEllen Online Now Aug 28, 2012 at 12:09 PM

      I am looking for a bicycle tour, just a day-tour, departing from Castellina in Chianti. We would rather not have to go to Florence to join a tour. Are there any tour operators in any of the towns close to Castellina in Chianti? Thanks for any advice or help!

    • renting a scooter

      by ocjcctoby Online Now May 1, 2008 at 11:37 PM

      I will be in Chianti from June 17 to June 19 and would like information where we can rent scooters to tour the tuscany valley on our own. All I was able to find was vespa tour groups. We just want to rent for 3 days to ride around the valley on our own. We already have lodging at a winery in Chianti.

    • Renting a vespa in the Chianti region?

      by ZsaZsa206 Online Now Jun 14, 2006 at 5:06 PM

      Hello there,
      My boyfriend and I have plans to rent an agriturismo in the Chianti region of Italy between Florence and Siena and near Castellina in Chianti, San Gimignano, Certaldo, Colle Val d'Elsa, Barberino and Monteriggioni. Apparently the location is on the road which links Poggibonsi to Castellina. We would really like to rent Vespas while in the area by the day and I can't seem to find anything on line to do that. Does anyone have any recommendations of who to contact?
      Much thanks!
