Stayed in Bardi, amazing place with loads of fabulous restaurants, bars and local things to do. The castle is marvellous with a fascinating museum within it, lots of history surrounds Bardi including it was named after on of Hannibal's elephants when he travelled through the area around 218 BC!

Having a car makes travel around Tuscany much easier even though the public transport is great. Avoid driving in the big cities like Florence and Bologna.
