in case anyone has suggestions for lodging, food, paths, etc. I am detailing my possible walking itinerary in S. Tuscany.
day 1- Sienna bus to Monte Oliveto Maggiore. Walk back to Buonconvento
day 2- Walk Buonconvento to Montalcino
day 3- Walk to Abbey St. Antimo- stay the night if possible, or bus back to Montalcino
day 4- Bus to Abbey area and walk to Roca d' Orcia or walk from Abbey area to Roca d'Orcia and stay night if possible- if not, continue on to Bagno Vignoni
day 5- either walk from Roca d'Orcia to Bagno or walk from Bagno to San Quirico
day 6- either walk San Quirico to Pienza or Bagno to Pienza
day 7- Walk Pienza to Montechiello
day 8- Bus back to Sienna to collect luggage.
I would like to stay near the Abbey St. Antimo and Roca d'Orcia, but am not having much luck finding places to stay.
Also, we thought we would then stay somewhere for a few days in Chianti, and rent a vespa to sightsee. Any lodging and location suggestions? Maybe something different than what we saw on our walks.
Any suggestions, must "see" sights, skip sights etc. would be helpful.
