Which hilltown or village in Italy to use as homebase for a month

Jump to last reply

We are planning a trip next fall to Italy... We have been to Italy several times before and have stayed in big cities and small villages, normally staying several days to a week in each place and then moving on to a different part of the country.

This trip we are planning to stay in one location only, after attending a wedding in San Sebastian Spain... We would like to be in a hilltown or village where we could walk to restaurants, bars, markets, etc - where the people are friendly, but is not a huge tourist destination. We will have cars to take day trips.

We love Italy for the food, wine and abounding beauty. My husband enjoys art and I collect Italian ceramics.

I'm researching for the best spot and am wondering if anyone has recommendations? Areas that we have not traveled to yet and are interested in are Abruzzo or Puglia. We spent a week in Spello last year and that is the kind of base we are looking for. We would consider returning but I'm wondering if there is another place similar that we should try.

Any suggestions from personal experience would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.
