Tuscany/Umbria Questions

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are looking at a 5 or 6 night stay in Tuscany/Umbria in the middle of a 3 week trip to Italy (Venice, CT, Tuscany, Amalfi Coast, and Rome). I have been to Florence once before and thought it was nice, but we aren’t huge art fans and don’t plan to visit Florence on this trip. We are town between staying in one centrally located place (Montepulciano area?) the entire 5 or 6 nights or splitting it up between two places (we will have a car). We are also town between staying in an agriturismo in the countryside or staying in one (or two) of the towns. On the one hand we really like the idea of being in the countryside and having a view over the rolling hills, but it would also be nice to be able to be able to walk to dinner so we can have wine and enjoy ourselves. I know 10 different people probably have 10 different preferences, but any thoughts/advice you can pass along would be greatly appreciated. W plan to take day trips to surrounding cities/towns, and the ones we are most interested in seem to be Sienna, Assisi, Orvieto, Volterra.

Thanks much.
