Do we stay in Montalcino or Chianti or Both?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I will be in Italy from September 22-October 10th for our first wedding anniversary and we plan to visit Umbra (Montefalco, 3 nights), Tuscany (5/6 nights), Bologna (3/4 nights), Piedmont (Alba, 4 nights). Our main priorities are wine, food, views and ambiance.

I am torn as to where to stay in Tuscany? Do we stay in Montalcino for 3 nights and then switch to Chianti for the final 2/3? It seems like it makes more sense to explore the southern parts of Tuscany from Montalcino and then move north so we can do the area around there rather then driving back to Montalcino. What do you think?
