Our plan for Italy includes 7 full days in Florence. We're thinking that somewhere in the middle we'd like to take a vacation from our vacation (probably a Sunday but this will depend on last minute whims). We're not talking about a day trip, jam-packed with touring Siena or taking a bus tour of Tuscany. More like get up late, take the train to a little town, stroll about holding hands, have a slow lunch with some good wine, maybe stop in a little shop or two but nothing frantic, tiring, full of must-see attractions. Think quaint, calm, relaxed.
Certaldo (in my Rough Guide to Tuscany) sounds about right but I'd like some real opinions.
We are not renting a car. Will a Sunday (or any other specific day) be a problem for restaurants?
