My favorite day during our trip to Tuscany was the day we visited Montalcino and the surrounding countryside. It just happened to be my husband's birthday. We only spent a little time in the town itself and I'd like to go back again someday and linger along its steep streets. We had arranged for a guide ahead of time to take us on a tour of a Brunello di Montalcino winery and a monastery with an olive mill nearby.
What a lasting impression this day had on me! We had never even heard of Brunello wine before, nor had we cooked much with olive oil. I felt like this day gave me my first sense of what life is like in Tuscany, and how the people live.
- Pros:beautiful rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves
- Cons:not one thing
Even if you don't have time to visit a winery, at least buy a bottle of this excellent wine, or have some with dinner... more travel advice
My fondest memory of this whole trip is, without a doubt, Don Celso, the monk in charge of the monastery's olive mill.... more travel advice
