Hi Elisa! Thank you for making this blog, the information is amazing. I am so glad to have come across your blog!!! My name is Kam and my family & will be spending two weeks in Tuscany this September. We will be staying at a Villa in Lucca. We would like to drive to a beach with easy access ( due to arthritic problems)in Maremma and also the hot springs in Saturnia. How long will all that take? 18. August 2016

Hi Kam, the easiest beaches to access from Lucca are in either Follonica or Castiglione della Pescaia. Le Rocchette is a great one to consider. It was voted Italy's top for 2 years running is just outside of Castiglione della Pescaia.  The tourist office should be able to help. They have great parking, are free and don't involve a lot of walking. They're about 2 hours away As for the Saturnia hot springs, the trip will take 3 hours.

Hi We are travelling to Italy for the first time and will be in Rome at the time of the Festadi San Mamiliano in September. We are thinking about either taking a day trip from Rome or perhaps staying overnight. We would like to be there on the 15th for the main festivities. Would the procession be in the morning. Also if we cam up on the 14th would there be attractions on that day as well. Thanks for your help. Robert Di Giglio 18. August 2016

Hi Robert, it's hard to know for sure since they usually leave everything to the last minute, but it's unlikely they will have anything organised for the 14th because it's a weekday and they usually tie any of their celebrations to the closest weekend - which would be the 10th and 11th in this case. But the 15th will be jammed packed with festivities. The procession usually starts at 11am with a mass. All the best, Elisa

Hi Elisa, after our time in Tuscany we wish to spend 3 nights @ Monte Argentario or Assisi. We are not religious. What would you recommend. Many thanks. Kam 18. August 2016

Hi Kam, what a choice! Monte Argentario is a beautiful corner of Tuscany with incredible beaches and port side towns. It's great if you love relaxing on the beach, hiking and eating. Not to mention you could visit Giannutri Island and Gigli Island, which are both gorgeous. You're also within driving distance of Saturnia's hot springs, Pitigliano and Orbetello, which are worth a visit. The entire area is gorgeous, unspoilt and pretty off the radar. I've been Assisi and it's beautiful too. It's more touristy, but there's a reason why tourists flock there. The church is gorgeous even if you're not religious. I found the crowds a bit frustrating and while I hear the Umbria is beautiful. I've only been to Perugia, which is nearby and is nice. I'm biased, but I would pick Monte Argentario.

Oooops… Hi there 🙂 My name is Sara, and I was very inspired by your story! Because I am planning to move to Toscany for 1 year, starting in january 2017. My question is, how do I find a stable to keep my 2 sweet horses near Firenze? When I check online, only riding holidays come up, and since I dont speak Italian (yet), then I feel stuck. Can you help me? Ps. I have to visit the region your living in! It sounds amazing! All the best. Sara from Sara Roland 21. July 2016

Hi Sara, wow, you're the first tourist to write to me who wants to come to Tuscany with her horses. What you need to research is the term "scuderia per pensione firenze". I found this website, which might be a good start:

Thank you very much for answering my question about getting to Arcidosso! 23. June 2016
