Amarone, Piedmont, Tuscany in 12 days

Food on the brain | Aug 8, 2010 08:26 PM

Hi all,

Heading to Italy for 10 to 12 days (with 2 days in Madrid) in Sept. Suggestions? The MOST important is tastings of Amarone......for just 2.

Other than that, we really hope to do the Piedmone and Tuscany regions in that time frame. Are we being overly enthusiastic, or can we do it? The most important elements of the trip - food and wine.......Have heard that some villages (Siena, Lucca, San Gimigniani (sp) are must does - tell me more....what must we see there?

Which wineries are Must Do's?

Which restaurants are Must do's?

We will stay where we need to for the best food and wine. Planning to have an overnight in the Parma/Reggio area, 1 night at least in Venice (must see the Murano glass), 1 or 2 nights to visit the 3 B's in Piedmont, at least in the Verona area for our lovely Amarones, and at least 3 in Tuscany, but perhaps more.

So many, so little time....
