My wife and I loved all of Italy but this was our absolute favorite part of the trip! Other guests we met at the B&B extended their stay at Il Vicario just like us because you can truly feel the essence of Tuscany. From this little gem you can branch out and go on day trips to San Gimignano or three other walled cities within an hour or so. Fulvio and Katia have fantastic recommendations and will help you firm up a loose itinerary with wineries, views, scenic drives, etc... but here's the clencher. Each evening as you retire from all the walking feeling overloaded with culture, museum fatigue, driving around, wine, etc... you get to retreat to the B&B where they cook you a fantastic dinner which is filled with great conversation from both other guests and the host! The price is very reasonable and the home cooked food comes out slow which in any other circumstance would be a bad thing. But here it is paired with wine, apps, conversation and a few additional courses plus dessert! At the end of this couple hour experience we felt like we were in complete zen! We repeated it three times and would have kept going if we could. We can't wait for our next visit! It is obvious that Fulvio found his dream job! His warmhearted nature and genuine positive attitude lift the room.
