Subject: Re: Florence Daytrips
Dear Debbie and Kurt,

Fiesole is a must - first there is a lovely view of Florence from Fiesole and as well they have a wonderful Etruscan museum and amphitheatre. It is very easy to get there - by bus from piazza St. Marco ( i think that's the right name.) and it's only about 15 - 20 minutes.

You can easily drive from Florence to Montepulciano - lovely drive - lovely wineries to visit - we did that drive in 2001 and booked a lunch at the Castello Banfi winery (we were able to book it on line) we also organized a tour of the winery -

there are also several small towns like Greve that are quite near and worth visiting.

Enjoy. Carol Toronto
