I have been to Italy's main spots, Venice, Rome & Florence Also Cinque Terre. But we have never driven or experienced the countryside of Italy. I would like to select an area like Tuscany or Umbria or others? to explore before meeting friends from Sweden in the Cinque Terre in June 2008. I am looking for some insight as to where to go, recomended easy driving routes, places that might be less crowded etc We have about a week and will be coming from Austria probably by Train, but could be car. I know a lot of you have done this many times, anyone have any advice for us?
