I've just started to plan a short trip in Tuscany (4/5 nights)
My boyfriedn and I should be travelling between May and June next year.
"Ortaglia", in Montepulciano looks like a beautiful place to spend some romantic nights and Montepulciano itself iseems to be a very popular and beautiful town. During our stay, i would also like to see "Val D'Orcia" (S. Quirico and S. Amiata Abbey) and the "crete senesi". Are these areas really worth visiting?
However I've read that this part of Tuscany might be too touristy.
Is it really that touristy?
What other options would you suggest? Maybe the "Maremma"?... is the landscape of the "Maremma" as suggestive as the landscape in Montepulciano and surroundings?
Thanks a lot for your help!!
Has anybody stayed in "Ortaglia"? On t.a. I haven't found many comments but all of them were very positive.
