Tuscany - Greve/Lucolena, Sicily - Taormina

Hi All,

I am travelling for my honeymoon to Italy and will be staying for 1 week at a place in Lucolena (near Greve in Chianti). Are there any suggestions for can't miss places near by? I've seen some posts about Florence, Siena and various other areas but not too much about this specific area. Of course we can drive to a real destination place but would prefer to have some of our meals close by.

After the week in Tuscany we are taking the train to Taormina for 3 nights. I have reservations at Casa Grugno which I've seen suggested all over, but is there anything else authentic and down to earth in this very touristy town?

Thanks in advance, and if you ever have any questions about NYC and specifically Astoria let me know!
