      GETTING AROUND

      San Gimignano Jul 16, 2016 at 7:27 AM

      Hi, we will be visiting Italy in October and not being seasoned travelers I would like to find out whether there are taxi/cabs operating around San Gimignano. We are staying about 3 kilometers out of the center in a self catering apartment. We are taking the train from Rome to Florence, then bus to San Gimignano on the 4 October. Our idea is to do a guided bus tour to Pisa on one day from San Gimignano and therefore do not want to hire a car in Florence to leave it standing. All advice and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

      Where to stay in Tuscany

      Tuscany Jul 10, 2016 at 1:07 PM

      In 2017, 5 of us will be staying in Cinque Terre for 5-7 nights and then want to move on to the Tuscany area. We will have a car, if needed, and would like to be assessable to Florence, Pisa and the small town/rural experiences of the area. We expect to rent a 3BR apartment/villa. A coastal town is fine but I fear that we'll wish we had stayed somewhere inland. Any suggestions and THANKS??

      Best place for traditional food and wine

      Tuscany Jun 29, 2016 at 11:04 AM

      I am hoping to visit Tuscany in October and I am looking for a traditional town or village where I can relax and try some traditional food and wine. I don't plan to drive so I will rely on trains and buses. I have heard that Greve and Montefioralle are excellent places for food and especially wine, and they get good reports in this forum. They seem to be beside each other, only about 1km apart. Greve seems to be a good choice to stay in, as it has a bus to Florence and has a reasonable selection of accommodation.

      Is Greve/Montefioralle the best choice for a traditional day or two in Tuscany? Or are there any better options?

We won't have a car but will take public transport or hiring drivers where needed. Also looking at maybe doing small tours in Vintage Fiats, Vespas, Bicycles, Walking.
      Love food tours, winery tours (where you get to drink more than 3 sips!)

      I see that I will probably have to combine the tour with something else, that I might prefer to see on my own, but I understand that; I'm primarily asking for a recommendation of a reliable source, who might be able to give the most historically informative tour.
