Hello all... I just joined in the hopes I could get some immediate feedback with regards to Tuscany. My wife and I are planning our honeymoon in France and Italy and we're making a 3 night stay somewhere in Tuscany part of our honeymoon. We will have a car and we'll be staying in Tuscany from July 22nd- 24th.
What I would like are opinions and suggestions from people who have stayed here in a similar situation like ours. I know we don't have enough time to see the whole region but it would be nice if we can find that right spot in terms of scenery, location and accommodations. I can't see us breaking the bank for a room when I think we'll be doing excursions and day trips for our time here, hence the fact location is a must. I would like our choice of hotel/B&B to be clean, romantic, private bath and A.C.
I do love wine and olive oil and I do like areas that tend not to be to touristy although neither my wife or I speak Italian so we may have to consider something in between. I have read about San Gimignano, Volterra, Pienza, Montecatini, Greve and others. My wife and I need to nail down a place within the next day or two. Any help will be much appreciated.
