I will be traveling to Tuscany in early May with my husband, another couple and our two one and a half year olds. We will be spending a few days in Florence, a few near the coast and then ending in the country side. After debating between San Gimignano and Montepulciano I think we have settled on Montepulciano. I am debating whether I want to do a country B and B or agriturismo (preferably on a vineyard) or stay in town. Does anyone have any accommodation recommendations?
We also have a strong interest in great wines, cheeses and foods. Are there any good vineyards we should arrange to visit ahead of time? We plan on renting cars but are open to having a driver bring us around, so that we may all enjoy the wine, but am not very interested in a big group tour unless it’s strongly recommended! We’d just love to take in all the beautiful sights of the country.
Any restaurant recommendations are also greatly appreciated! We like to visit good local places and avoid anything too touristy.
As many other recommendations we can get would be greatly appreciated!!
