Hello...in early May my wife and I want to spend one of our days in Siena driving to Assisi in the morning and spend the afternoon enjoying Montepulciano, Pizza and Montalcino before heading back to Siena.
While I know the scenery will be beautiful for the afternoon part of our trip, I'm wondering if anyone could recommend a scenic route from Siena to Assisi. I know the highway would be the fastest, but it doesn't look very exciting. The route through Arezzo and down through Palazzo del Pero looks nicer but might be too long.
I'd really appreciate your thoughts and suggestions.
