Villa La Massa Review

In this tall and imposing villa, 15 minutes out of town, public rooms are outfitted in Renaissance style and guest rooms have high ceilings, plush carpeting, and deep bathtubs. A pool and beautiful views of the Arno are bonuses. The superb Il Verocchio restaurant serves Tuscan classics using local seasonal ingredients; a pianist quietly plays old standards while you eat. A shuttle bus runs every hour to and from the center of Florence, but the place is so peaceful, you might not want to bother.

    Hello friends.
    I'm planning to drive a rental car in Southern Tuscany for a week.
    How reliable the GPS is in Tuscany? Do I really need a detailed local map or GPS will be good enough?
    Thanks for your help. Read more
