My boyfriend and I are looking for a place to stay in a little over a month, 30 May - 1 June. We will spend 3 days in Rome, then 2 days in Cinque Terra, and are planning our next 3 days in Tuscany, and that's where we need the assistance. We will likely rent a car, but have not determined where we will pick it up. We are waiting to find our accommodations. We need to be back in Rome by the end of our 3rd day in Tuscany, so I'm not thinking northern Tuscany for that reason. We love food (restaurant on site or cooking class could be fun), wine (tasting at or nearby is a major plus!), and a location that could allow for us to visit other towns nearby. Perhaps somewhere near Montalcino or Montepulciano, but we are quite open to location!

Thank you for any suggestions!
