Tuscany is a timeless treasure where medieval villages cling to hilltops, and vineyards and olive trees bathe in golden sun. Each region has its own tradition, each village makes pasta with their own succulent twist . The world’s greatest art springs from here, too, along with iconic sites such as Florence’s Duomo or the Vatican galleries in Rome. Experiencing the region is best when taken slowly, and deeply. We’ll show you.
