Tuscany countryside, small towns and food

Jump to last reply

OK so I am set on seeing first-hand the lovely vistas of Tuscany seen in various movies. And I hope to stay in two or three towns in addition to two days in Florence to soak up the city and museums I saw many years ago. And then there is the food to enjoy!!

Now my dilemma is where to stay - in the towns or more remotely in the countryside. I'd love to enjoy some evenings sitting on a patio or deck with a nice glass (bottle) of red wine and staring at rolling hills and valleys of Tuscan colors. My plan it to possibly start in or near Lucca, drive along the Mediterranean, and down to Pienza and Siena to explore Val d’Orcia and Chianti areas.

I'd love to hear from folks with their preferences for these small towns and out-of-the-way places to stay and see and places to eat.
