We are two female friends, travelling to Italy to celebrate our 40th birthdays next Spring. We will first spend three nights in Orvieto to visit Umbria & then have another five nights to spend in Tuscany. We are debating whether to break our journey in both Montepulciano and Volterra or to stay in one or the other, or alternatively, another town suggested by the forum members. We would like somewhere that has a variety of dining options and lively evening atmoshere. We have both visited Florence & Siena on previous trips so do not wish to stay in either place again.
Any suggestions welcome.
