Okay, so we're going to italy for 12 nights end of april into may. I've traveled there in college some, but my husband's first time. We are big foodies and wine lovers and are planning at this point, to be in Venice for 2 nights, driving to Castellina in Chianti for 3 nights(going into Florence for a day trip or so), one night in San Gimignano to dine and stay at Locanda il Pino(for the restaurant at Ristorante il pino), been highly recommended by a friend. Anyway, then onto Piazze(near Cetona) for 3 nights to do southern Tuscany touring, wine,etc. then onto Rome for 3 nights and then home. We are staying at an agriturismo in Castellina and then a neat little inn in piazze. My question is this....should we shorten our tuscany time and stop in Bologna(stay a night or two) and then only stay in one or 2 Tuscan locations instead or keep as is? I've been reading on this site that the food in Tuscany isn't that great and that Bologna is the deal? Any thoughts, particular suggestions, would be most appreciated!!
