Perfect base in Tuscany for getting around but also having a home base that has shopping, culture and food! We were there right before the Palio meaning we got to see much of the pomp without the enormous crowds and inflated prices. Stay for a few days, relax, and enjoy this delightful hilltop town.

Hiking through olive groves, poking around a castle, peeping at a ruined monastery, and dipping your lower limbs (or whole body) in the lake are some ways to enjoy this little island. An eco-preserve, you can also rent a bike to tool around on, or stop and eat some amazing local food (fish like luccio and persico from the lake) ...

The city of Montecatini Terme is nothing special (according to me) but the hills on the north are worth exploring. There are dozens small villages with nice, typical restaurants. As you may know, the food in Itally couldn't be wrong :) but it you go to Tuscany try the wine (Cianti) and the steaks. You can find pizza and spaghetti ...

If you're interested in having an appendectomy, this is a terrific place to do it. Spontaneously had mine in 2009 at the hospital in this little town. Great medical care and 4 days in the hospital plus surgery only runs $5K. Ideal if you speak Italian as very few of the doctors and staff speak English. As far as the ...

Lovely little town with great restaurants and the perfect spot for a morning cappuccino. Tuscany without the throngs of tourists. Try staying at Dolce Toscana, and have dinner at Il Frontaio. Drive the Strada del Vino. Bella!

Vinci, as in de Vinci, as in Leonardo's home town. It's a small village actually, about half-way between Firenze (Florence) and Pizza, and is home to what is, in my mind, the #1 museum in Italy, dedicated to Leonardo de Vinci, the Engineer.

Tiny medieval village on the way between Montepulciano and Pienza. Once a very important historical town in its own right. Charming and a perfectly slice of Tuscany.

Home to one of the best beaches in Tuscany, this cute medieval town overlooks the sea. Its long expanse of sand is consistently awarded the "Blue Flag" which Italy gives to beaches that are clean and have good services. It's a great place to spend summer holidays, though July and August get crowded and pricey.

Cute little hillside town with nice views of Montepulciano. La Chiasu makes for a nice base for exploration and has a great restaurant.

A deep expanse of sandy beach that's good for beach games like soccer and volleyball, but the sand is less fine than that at Castiglione della Pescaia, and it is often quite windy here. If you are bringing your own beach umbrella you'll want to weigh it down!
