    It's all beautiful. Make sure to spend some time in
    Siena and San Gimignano.

    What? You don't need a camera, lenses or film?

    ....yes, and the Maremma, Saturnia, Punta Ala, I could write another ten name
    of places worht to see... in fact the whole region is beautiful, with plenty
    of photographic opportunities.

    The problem will be remaining awake in the afternoon, after having helped
    the digestion of enormous portions of brasato di chinghiale or pappardelle e
    ravioli ai funghi porcini, with generous amounts of Chianti Classico or
    Brunello di Montalcino.

    Actually, taking photographs whilst swimming and rolling in the yellow
    autumn leafs could open a unique perspective :)

  7. Personally I tended to save the Chianti Classico and Brunello di Montalcino
    (and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano) for Dinner. Lunch was usually accompanied
    by a glass or two of Vernaccia di San Gimigano.

    On the subject of dining, I'd definitely recommend a visit to a restaurant
    just of the Piazza Del Campo in Siena called Le Logge

    Whilst in Siena, also visit the Ennotecha Italiano in the Fortezza Medici
    for one of the best selections of Tuscan (and other Italian) wines available
    to taste by the glass - very handy if your hotel is opposite the Fortezza as
    mine was

    In your case that would fit.

  9. I would hesitate to recommend that time of year. I was there in
    mid-October 1995, and it was hazy and the vegetation was all brown.
    Spring would probably be better.
