Need help one last time as this is racking my brain for some reason.
We will be picking up a car in Florence around 1:00 p.m. and make our way to Montepulciano by evening. We have decided that we want to see some sights along the way and what we decided on was the Greve in Chianti region. After much research we narrowed it down to a few places...please advise what can be missed and what are must sees!
Once we pick up the car we thought about seeing the Badia a Passignana then heading over to Greve, Panzano, Lamole, and Montefioralle. After looking at maps the trip to Badia a Passignano may be out of the way...is that a "DO NOT PASS UP" place to see? Or will there be places like that on our trip because we will be headed to Montalcino / Montepulciano.
After that is decided upon we plan on seeing these sights to explore and eat...what do you recommend, what order do you recommend we see these destinations, and can we remove or should we add some things that we are missing from our itinerary.
After we have decided upon trekking or not trekking out to Badia a Passignano we want to see Greve (I heard mixed reviews...please advise if we should pass this up). We really want to taste some wine in this region so we thought about stopping at Castello di Verrazzano for a self guided tour and tasting with a possible stop at the Piazza Matteotti.
Here is our second issue...should we go to Lamole for lunch and views or should we go to Montefioralle to dine at Taverna del Guerrino with views? Or do both?
In all we want to spend 5ish hours in the region to see some sights, have lunch, taste some wine...is this over doing it?
Please advise TA experts...thanks again!
