My wife and i are traveling Through Italy this April. Rome, Cinque Terre, Tuscany, Verona, Venice. I am having trouble picking a place in Tuscany to use as a base to see the area as i don't know the area and have never been to Italy before. The rest of the trip is booked. We will have a car that we will be driving from La Spezia to where we will stay for 4 nights. Right now i am looking South of Florence and North of Sienna but dont know roads or access to get to say San Gimignano, Assisi,wine tours, etc. I am also hoping to do a wine tour of Tenuta Tignanello but cant find anything on tours there.
Borgo Petrognano is a place i am leaning to wards to stay.
Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.$100- $200/night
