In San Gimignano, my friend and I tried to get 2 people on one coin using one of those self-cleaning automatic public toilets near our parking lot. The funniest thing was when my friend was sitting on the commode with her pants down around her ankles and the doors automatically opened exposing her to the whole parking lot.
Which Untours have you already done?
Southern Tuscany and Spain.
What advice would you give others considering an Untour?
Definitely do it! We have already introduced 8 other people to Untours and everyone loves this way of travel.
I also love the La Canonica farm. Every time I visit for work I imagine what it would be like to actually stay there. The views are stunning and the owners are charming. I know you'll enjoy Umbria and Venice. I have a feeling you'll want to return to those places as well.
My husband and I stayed in an Untour apartment in Venice but we were on the island of La Giudecca and away from the crowds. I would suggest you check out the apartment there. Also the bell tower there has really great views and not as crowded as the one in St. Mark's. Read my trip log for other information,
We also loved our one day trip to Cinque Terre and I always love Florence.
