OMG Rob, you’re going in one of the most beautiful regions in Italy and, consequently, in the whole world! :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
Been 'round there few weeks ago with my girlfriend, if you’re planning to drive around a bit to discover some of those lovely towns, I’ll be glad to share some experiences!

See you soon and enjoy!!

All info is welcome, where to eat and small towns to visit. :+1:

Permission absolutely granted!
Even for your service with us!
I Agree with Gabriele “IBANEZ” you have plenty of choices!!

Well near to you (apart Firenze) you have Colle val D’Elsa, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, they are all well worth a visit!

In all those places you’ll find beautiful landscapes and even better food and wines!

Have fun Rob!

And about places to visit, I can reccommand the following:

San Quirico d’Orcia
Pienza - A MUST!
Bagni San Filippo (you can bath in the natural spa)
Bagno Vigoni (old Roman’s spa)
Abbazia di Monte Uliveto (here you can buy beer, wine and and oil made by the Monks!)
Abbazia di Sant Antimo

I suggest you buy a local guide book in your preferred language to enjoy everyting.
In most of those places there are local tourist offices where local guides are supplied for free.

Enjoy vacations!
I do not know wether you are driving to Italy. Just in case you are passing through Milano on the way back let me know… Maybe we can set up something, i.e. a vist to the air museum near Malpensa airport -LINK:


I’ve been in these two places and they’re breathtaking. Pienza is a jewel together with the whole Val d’Orcia!
