Description
Live a full sensory experience complete with amazing food, fine wine and breathtaking landscapes. Located in central Italy; Tuscany stretches from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea. Central Tuscany is dotted with medieval hilltop fortresses, vine-planted hillsides and sculptural stands of cypress trees; the northwest and east harbor boast with dramatic mountain ranges and fecund forests; the central and southern coasts feature a garland of islands floating tantalizingly close to a shoreline teeming with wildlife. The range of outdoor activities on offer is equally diverse, contributing to the region's reputation as a repository of grand-slam sights and experiences unmatched anywhere in the world. Join us as we take picture-perfect postcards. We'll explore medieval villages, historic towns, castles, country churches (the so-called pievi) and beautiful abbeys that are scattered all over. The architecture includes Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. Walled medieval villages that sit high atop hilltops overlooking the vineyards gracing this beautiful land. You’ll be inspired during the countless opportunities to capture breathtaking photos. Meet us in Siena, Italy’s loveliest medieval city. We’ll photograph and explore Siena’s charms, then move to our favorite farmhouse in the heart of southern Tuscany. We’ll travel in mini-vans through the landscapes of Val d’Orcia and Crete Senesi, with free time in Tuscany’s hill towns and the best little villages you’ve never heard of. Let’s leave the crowds behind and savor the rolling Tuscany landscapes, quiet villages, authentic food and local wine.
