Staying in Chiani April 16th to April 21st.


New member
Hello Leonora,

I have already got some great information from other posts.
Can you help me?
I am the main organiser of our group of 4 (2 middle aged couples!).
Alot of the tours seem to start from Florence or Sienna and are quite expensive.
I would like my friends to sample Tuscany.
Here is a wishlist of items I would like to organise;
Market (antiques & food).
Visit to see cheesemaking or pasta making.
Good vineyard (I know you have listed quite a few already)
& possibly outdoor/indoor thermal spa.

Any help would be much appreciated. We have a car so are able to get to most places.

Thank you

Did you mean Chianti?

For cheese exploration, have a read of this article which lists a few places you can visit.

My favorite hot springs to visit are Bagno San Filippo, though I do love the little town of Bagno Vignoni which offers indoor pools. And Montecatini is probably one of the more famous little spa towns in Tuscany.

Buon Viaggio,

Donna Denise
