San Minato

Filed under: Uncategorized — Darren Hackett @ 3:28 pm

San Miniato is a lovely little town about 45 miles south of Vellano.

In Tuscany there are many hill towns and villages to be discovered, many off the beaten track.  All of these have unique historical treasures of their own.  Many do not feature in the glossy guidebooks that visitors bring with them but are a joy to the eye.  It does mean that you are best to hire a car in Tuscany if you want to see many of these out of the way places. 

People do get put off driving in Italy and Italian drivers have an unfair reputation for danger and risk.  However Italian roads are generally quiet, especially in the country, roads are good and well-signed posted, and Italian drivers are not generally aggressive.  OK car hire these days can be a little expensive but the joys of touring are many fold.

However there is an extensive network of trains and buses to get you out and about too.  Trains especially will connect you to all the major tourist spots.  They are inexpensive and generally on time.  However you decide to travel you are guaranteed spectacular sights.
