We are planning a trip to Italy in June next and we are planning to stay in Tuscany for a portion of the trip.
Ideally, we'd like to stay relatively close to Florence as it's a first for us into the more rural Italy so think it would be a good place to get some grounding. However, we will have a car so it is not essential if we find somewhere else to stay that takes our fancy.
We're looking for some help on Agriturismos - I am really drawn to the idea of being in a relatively isolated space, but essentially living with/near locals to give us a step in the right direction to what's great in the area.
We have found so many many wonderful options, however unashamedly a large reason why we're returning to Italy is my love of the food so I would like to stay in one that offers cooking classes.
I have found a few here and there which look great but as I've been trawling through the forums, some of these posts have helped me so much with my trip planning already, I thought I'd see if anyone here has been to any that are really worth looking into.
