Where to base in Tuscany if we loved the hill towns of Umbria?

Jump to last reply

We chose to stay in Umbria for 10 days in 2010 because we were "saving" Tuscany for a visit with another couple. We will be in Tuscany this October and I'm trying to decide on a base for our week long stay; either an apartment in a town or an agriturismo in the country.

We absolutely loved Umbria. With our base near Assisi we drove to many points from there; Gubbio, Orvieto, Norcia, Spoleto and even a touch into Tuscany at Cortona.

Can you recommend a location to base ourselves in Tuscany that will give access to hill towns and vineyards? Is there a central location you would recommend so that we can visit both the northern and southern hill towns or is the driving distance too much for day trips and we should select either a north or south location?

Thanks for any suggestions or comments to help me find a location. Deborah
