Also any information on where to get things like hiking poles for sale or any other kit we might need. We are a pretty outgoing family so we will give anything a try. It's really exciting looking online at the beautiful countryside scenery and available foods

While there it would be great to get to know a little bit of the language also, so any language class days we could attend would be awesome. I know of friends that have been to Italy on vacation but not quite what we have in mind with the country side hiking, site seeing etc.

Any information would be greatly appreciated guys !!

This had to be my favorite trip that i have been on for a while! I want to say thank you to the amazing people in Tuscany and that you have a beautiful place to live. I will be visiting again shortly. I attended some language lessons that was an amazing experience, i got a Tuscany book to take away with me also which was a bonus.
