  1. Enoteca Fiorentina www.enotecafiorentina.it, a wine bar near Florence’s Sant’Ambrogio Market, is an enophile’s paradise. They also have excellent traditional Tuscan fare to accompany your vino. Try one of their Tasting Menus – you’ll thank us!
  2. In the town of Vinci’s historic district, Leonardo Da Vinci’s house is worth a visit for a peek into his inventions and his life’s work (and it’s great for kids!). www.museoleonardo.it
  3. Santa Maria Assunta in Siena is a masterpiece of Gothic Architecture. Have dinner at Tre Cristi www.trecristi.com located in a 14th century palazzo and filled with antique furnishings that juxtapose nicely with their modern take on Mediterranean cuisine.
  4. La BotteGaia Osteria www.labottegaia.it is right on the Piazza del Duomo in Pisa. This traditional trattoria is the perfect place to stop for lunch. Try the baccalà mantecato – it’s a must!
  5. Pietrasanta: this is our home base in Tuscany so we admit we are biased! There are few places in the world where you can find more of a concentration of artisans and craftsmen. Coupled with the beaches, great shopping, and revolving art displays in the main piazza, every corner of this town is worth exploring.
