Hi – Would like to visit Fiora Valley in April. Which towns would you recommend and how can I get there from Rome? Thank you. Donna McCarl 2. May 2018

Hi Donna, your best Fiora Valley towns are Pitigliano, Manciano, Sorano and Sovana and of course Montemerano and Saturnia. From Rome, the easiest option is by car. Otherwise you can catch the train to either Orbetello/Albinia/Grosseto train station and bus it from there. The latter is significantly harder and you will need to plan your journey very carefully in advance because buses are few and far between.

Hello, we will be in Italy in March. Is that a good time to visit Giglio Island? We will be visiting Porto Ercole and would like to take the ferry to the island. from Kim Ercole 2. May 2018

Yep that’s a perfect time to visit, although it might be a bit cold and the beaches won’t be as inviting, but the scenery is still beautiful enough!


Do you have any information on realtors, or agents in the area of Castel Del Piano, or perhaps within a 30 mile radius that sell properties with homes. Thanks ! 7. November 2016

Hi, the best advice I can give is to contact the realtors directly. Those based in the Castel del Piano area. You don’t want to seek out international agencies as they’ll charge you more. You’re better off finding someone local. Most speak English – underline most! a quick google search for “agenzia immobiliare Castel del Piano” will give you a list of the agencies. They’re not likely to have websites, so you might have to call the number listed on the white pages.

My husband is planning our annual trip to Italy for next summer. My question is spend 3 nights in Grosseto or in Monte Argentario? from Gay Roberts 7. November 2016

Hi, definitely Monte Argentario. It’s far more scenic and the restaurants are better, plus the travel distance is non-existent, so you can still see everything in the area, including Grosseto without spending more than an hour in the car.

Hello. Can you please advise where the reconstruction of the Francois Tomb frescoes is located? Thanks! 18. October 2016
