Thinking of basing ourselves here for a 3-night stay in the region. I know this is a popular question, but maybe by telling a bit about ourselves.....
We are a couple in our late 40s/early 50s and we will have a car. I'd like to stay somewhere not as busy as Siena, but not totally removed from everything. I don't mind a little "touristy," as I am admittedly a tourist. We enjoy food, wine, shopping and people watching. I like formal museums and art in small doses.
I know many will say to pick out the towns I want to visit and then choose a central location, but my choices are too all over the place. I thought I would see which location is in the midst of places most others' recommend seeing, if that makes sense. Volterra, Castellina and Cortona also popped up on my radar.
Thank you so much :)
