Montaione, Fl in Tuscany: Close by attractions, restaurants, towns?

Hi, We will be staying in Montaione, Fl for 4 nights in late July. We have a couple half days, and time after meeting (evening) to explore nearby places.

We know San Gimignano and Volterra are 30 mins away so are considering those on the 1/2 days but would like any suggestions on restaurants in scenic settings, farms etc that are close by..

Thanks,
S

Is a half day 4 hours?

Volterra would be close to an hour's drive away. Montaione to Certaldo would be about the same distance as to San Gimignano, but I doubt you could reach either in 30 minutes. More like 45. Also, you can't drive into the center of any of these towns, so you'll spend a little additional time walking into and out of the city centers from wherever you park the car.

hmm, good to know.. definitely can do this after meeting ends one day.

meeting starts at 1 PM and was hoping to do something that morning but maybe not..

any places nearby for dinner? i.e. on a vineyard or a farm?

Certaldo or Castefiorentino are nearby.

The Florence tourism website has info for the province of Florence.

Any suggestions for restaurants in Montaione? How about Castelfalfi - Il Rosmarino? And wine tasting at Villa Filicaja?
