My family and I will be staying at an agriturismo in the Chianti region (Villa Sant' Uberto) for 3-4 days in early September. We'd like to take some day trips but will have limited time and I know my kids would like to do some relaxing by the pool. If you had 2 days to "explore" what would be your ranking order between these- Florence, Siena, Orvieto (too far?) vineyards, San Giminagno...any others? We don't know what to make our priority. We've never been to Italy and aren't sure if we'll be back anytime in the next couple of decades.:(
P.S.- This is my first experience being part of a discussion board and joined both Fodors and RS. I don't want to be unkind, but everyone on RS is helpful, and nice and I feel very comfortable asking questions! Thanks so much you guys!
