    Default Staying in tuscany

    We have narrowed down to two places to stay in Tuscany and need help making a decision
    1 Locanda dell Artista in San Gimignano or 2. La Locanda in Volpaia in Chianti.
    Any suggestions!

    Default where to stay in Tuscany


    Personally I have no experience with either of those accommodations - but I could suggest that since they are located in two different areas:

    La Volpaia is in Chianti - and not just any Chianti - but Chianti Classico, so you will be surrounded by lots and lots of vineyards. You are about an hour away from Florence and Siena and the road is very panoramic - though sometimes a bit curvy. There are several small towns but I sometimes feel they are a (tiny) bit touristy. From here you can easily travel to places like Montepulciano, Cortona and Montalcino in just a little over an hour.

    San Gimignano is a bit (but not much) closer to Florence and Siena and promises great scenery...but perhaps not as many vineyards, in compensation I feel there are more characteristic small towns. San Gimignano offers several interesting day trip opportunities without driving far.

    I hope this helps you decide.

    Buon Viaggio,

    Donna Denise
