    • Best romantic country area in Tuscany?

      Tuscany Jul 14, 2016 at 2:32 AM

      Dears,

      I am planning to visit Tuscany for 2 days this September with my partner. I am wondering about the best place preferably a countryside overlooking the sea where we can have rent a small villa for a quite and private time while still being able to get to the town center, enjoy good food, and mingle with the locals.
      Thank you!

      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?

      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??

      As this is our first time to Italy, please advise what should we see or do or try? Both of us are good with walking. Food, shopping and history are our interests.

      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.

    • What is open on sundays?

      by lozzmaggi Online Now Nov 2, 2013 at 8:05 PM

      I have a free day in my organised tour that I was hoping to spend in Volterra, however that day is a sunday. I was wondering if anything would be open on a sunday that would be worth an hour or so on public transport or 1/2 an hour taxi ride to see or do? Alabaster shops? Etruscan museum? Restaurants?

      Thank you for your answers.

    • backpacktrip to Volterra

      by Charlotte&TheGuys Online Now Apr 3, 2011 at 6:47 AM

      Hi everyone,

      we're 5 youngsters between 18 and 20 years old and we're planning to do a roadtrip across Italy in August. Some of us have a driverlicense but not long enough to rent a car, so we're moving by foot, train, busses,... We were planning to take the bus from Firenze to Volterra, stay there for one night and go to Lucca the next day by bus. Many sites about busses are in Italian, which is a language none of us speaks.. we managed to figure out how to go by bus from Firenze to Volterra, but we're still searching for a way to go from Volterra to Lucca. Can anyone help us with that?
      We were also wondering what the best hostel/hotel/camping(we have tents) would be for the 5 of us, we're all students, we can live without luxury and we look for the cheapest way to stay a night at Volterra.

      thanks for trying to help us
      Charlotte

      Getting to Volterra from Florence

      by kathymof Online Now May 22, 2007 at 10:59 AM

      I am traveling to Florence in June and want to visit Volterra and San Gimignano. It seems that it is not that easy to get to Volterra by public transportation and that it takes a long time. The bus site is in Italian and I am having trouble with it. I don't want to sit on the bus all day with just a little time in Volterra.

      Would I be better of renting a car for a day and seeing both Volterra and San Gimignano that day? I would want to spend as much time as possible in each place, but especially in Volterra.

      Thanks
