And once you have been there, where else can you stay? What else can you explore?
Indeed, Tuscany cannot be limited to Florence, nor Florence to the Uffizi Gallery or Ponte Vecchio. Just as Pisa cannot be limited to its leaning Tower, Montecatini Terme to its thermal spa facilities and Castiglione della Pescaia to its vibrant nightlife. Of course Italian Renaissance enthusiasts might envisage to extend their journey from Lucca to Siena and find out that the best base to explore Tuscany at leisure is a small B&B in San Gimignano called Antico Borgo San Lorenzo, in the heart of Val d’Elsa (Valley of Elsa River) and most renown Chianti wine region.
