I am planning a summer wine tour in Italy&France with my husband for the second half of August. We are young couple travelling by ferry to Ancona and then by car and we will be in Italy on 18th, 19th, 28th, 29th and 30th August. Are there any suggestions about smaller but cute places to stay on/close to Ancona-Torino direction (maybe Dozza is one of them?) Also for some villages/towns for day trips especially if in that time there are some interesting public events/festivals etc (we have already been in Bologna and Firenze).
Thanks a lot!
