Favorite Tuscan town.

If you were going to spend one lazy day in a Tuscan town in winter, which would it be and why?

Will it have to involve getting out of bed? You and I may have different ideas about how to spend a lazy day in winter. The town might not matter.

I can't think of a reason that it shouldn't be Florence.

Volterra's Past Speaks in Its Stones
By BARRY UNSWORTH

ANY visitor to Volterra will be struck by the starkness of the contrast between the town itself and the countryside surrounding it.

Slideshow there, too...

As always, requires registration, but it's free.

Rex, I am curious--how much time have you spent in Volterra in the winter? Better yet, have you ever been to Volterra? What is the basis for your answer?

Never been to Volterra in the winter. Never been to Volterra. Never been to Italy in the winter. Never been to Europe in the winter.

It wasn't a recommendation. It was a suggestion to take a look at some interesting reading.

It sounds a little bit like a semi-serious question - - more like someone passing the time here. It's not like the other answers posted here to this question are headed for the travel literary hall of fame.

The more that this thread hits the top of the stack, the more likely that some useful information will come out of it - - for the original poster or anyone else who reads this thread.

But thanks for asking.

We enjoyed Panzano, a small town, south of Siena. Can't recall the hotel name, but there was only one in the town.

Hotel had a nice restaurant and there was one other in town. Very relaxing place. Very central to the Chianti region with some good roadside cafes and wineries.

Hope this is helpfull . . Rich
