My sweetie and I are saving up for our first big trip together (and the first big trip for each of us in a long long time). We want to go to Italy and are very interested in agrotourismo, slow food, ... um, food :)
Historical sights and general history are of interest to us, but really we want to relax, see beautiful art, and make and eat good food. I have found some interesting cooking classes, but am wondering if people have ideas for places to stay/eat/learn to cook. We're not big drinkers at all, but have no opposition to staying at vinyards if good food accompanies the wine.
The cities that I have looked at so far are Florence, Sienna, and some of the places in Cinque Terre.
Also, we're a visibly queer/lesbian couple, and I am wondering if other people have had positive experiences being affectionate in public, or if we should be more cautious.
Thanks so much!
