Venice to San gim to Rome  (5 Answers)

Hi, trying to figure out best way to do the rental car...should I train to Florence and rent a car there, or pick up the car in Venice and drive to s gim? Sounds like the drive isn't particularly scenic. And at the end of the week in San gim, we will be heading to Rome. I know not to drive there, so should I return the car in Florence, Siena, Orvieto, or Rome airport? We could take train from Florence, Siena or Orvieto. Thanks in advance,

GETTING AROUND  (14 Answers)

Hi, we will be visiting Italy in October and not being seasoned travelers I would like to find out whether there are taxi/cabs operating around San Gimignano. We are staying about 3 kilometers out of the center in a self catering apartment. We are taking the train from Rome to Florence, then bus to San Gimignano on the 4 October. Our idea is to do a guided bus tour to Pisa on one day from San Gimignano and therefore do not want to hire a car in Florence to leave it standing. All advice and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Possible taxi from Poggibonsi train station to San Gimignano  (1 Answer)

Does anybody have an idea how much a taxi would cost (if there's any) from Poggibonsi train station to San Gimignano? I'm asking because I have to wait 45+ minutes for the bus, so if the taxi fare is reasonable I'd rather get to SG sooner. Any advice is greatly appreciated. TIA :)

How much time do I need?  (12 Answers)

We are going to take the bus down from Florence and want to see San Gim and also Siena for the day. If we catch an early bus (8:15) from Florence to Poggibonsi and then the bus to San Gimignano, how much time is sufficient for seeing the town before busing over to Siena? I know this is a terrible question, but I'd like to eat lunch at a little restaurant I know in Siena and have the afternoon there before returning to Florence. Thanks!

Horse Riding Day Trip

Hello to all -

My wife and I will be visiting the Tuscan countryside in early July. We are camping for a few nights in Barberino Val d'Elsa. She loves horses and I would like to take her on a horse riding day trip in Tuscany. We are renting a car and visiting some of the hills towns and beautiful countryside for 2 days, so I don't want an extended horse riding trek, just a a day trip. I was wondering if anyone knew of some around the Barberino Val d'Elsa area? We aren't planning on renting the car for the day we are doing the horse trip, so I would prefer something somewhat closer to the campground (maybe like a 10-15km radius), but we can take bus/train to get there, no problem. Any advice or recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

Also, for our 2 days of traveling in the car, if you have some "can't miss - must see" towns, drives, or spots I would love to hear that as well. Thank you so much!!

- Ryan

CHIANTICLASSIC BASEBALL CAP  (3 Answers)

I purchased a baseball cap with the CHIANTICLASSICO BLACK ROOSTER LOGO on it during our one week stay in SAN GIMIGNANO. My 12 yr. old grandson fell in love with it and asked if he could wear it to school.
He lost it!
Can someone please give me the name of the shop in SG where I purchased it so I can buy another one (or two)? I cannot express how appreciative I would be for this information.

Contact me @ [email] or if in the states, 508-542-5335.
Thank you.
