Hi everyone, thanks in advance for your safe advice. I am looking to spend a week in Tuscany (13-20 Aug 2022) and I am a bit overwhelmed with where to stay. Our group is two parents and two children under 5 so a historic base with a daytime festival would be amazing. I’ve used the event list on this website but looking for any that are not there plus location recommendations! Thank you x

I think you would love Volterra on those dates - they have the medieval festival back on this summer - the first date is the 14th, so right after you arrive, the program isn't out yet but you can follow updates on their facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/VolterraAD1398 or just check back on their website closer to the date: http://volterra1398.it/14-agosto-2022/

I am working on updating all the events - lots of them were cancelled for 2 summers and everyone is catching up and programming events this summer, you will find lots of events every single weekend if not more during that month! I cannot keep up with all the news, some stuff also comes up last minute on my radar and I'm a bit overwhelmed but hopefully with a week or two of hunkering down I will manage to get most of the stuff for the summer up to date.

You just made our day :D Glad to help! Let us know if you have any other questions, keep checking back as I'm updating and writing new stuff every single day. I hope to have the events for August updated by mid-July, I have lots of info to make my way through. And I'd love to hear how things turn out after the vacation ;-),
