Last night in Italy - ideas?

Jump to last reply

DH and I are going to be in Italy for a few weeks in July. Flying into FCO, picking up our car, and spending our first two nights at the Casa Zia Cianetta just outside Foligno. Then we have a week in a charming converted chicken coop (oxymoron?) at Vivo D'Orcia in the Val D'Orcia. Next week friends are joining us for a week at the Villa il Castagno near Cortona, where we plan to visit the Mercantia in Certaldo, among other wanderings.

We leave Cortona Saturday morning, and our flight back to Canada is Sunday afternoon, so I'm hoping to find a great place for our final night, somewhere within a reasonable driving distance of FCO, but not in one of the soulless airport hotels. My preference would be to stay at a small inn or even a B&B in the old quarter of a town, where we could wander in the afternoon and enjoy a final dinner outside in a piazza. Some of our most memorable evenings have been in this sort of place, where there are lots of interesting shops that stay open into the evening, and there is a lot of life in the main square.

Fodorites have pointed us to so many great places in the past, I'm hoping that we can look to you again for our next trip.
