We are driving from Rome to Pistoia in June and a looking for an interesting little Tuscan town to stop in for lunch. Would Montepulciano make a good place to stop with young children? Preferably we would like to be able to park fairly close to the main street, find some interesting places to see/eat at/ visit without having to fight through hordes of tourists.
Can anyone suggest where we should park, eat at, see or do whilst we visit? Or - suggest an alternative?
We are not worried by driving manual cars through small villages - we just don't want to drive into a ZTL zone! Hence choosing this town over the likes of Siena etc.
