Discover the spirit of Tuscany
Birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo, home to the world heritage sites of Florence, Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano and the Medici villas, a place of landscapes bathed in light so beautiful they seem unreal – it’s no surprise that Tuscany is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations, attracting millions of visitors each year.
But there’s another Tuscany, one where you can escape the crowds and chance upon unspoilt hilltop villages and revel in the astonishing flavours of Italian home cooking in a truly local restaurant, where even the simplest combination of ingredients elicits disbelief at how something so modest can taste so good…
This is a Tuscany where you can find traditional estate vineyards and be warmed by the finest wine you’ve ever tasted, while standing on the very earth that brought it into existence.
It’s a place where you can find cheeses and porcini mushrooms that ignite the senses, a place where you can soak up intensely aromatic olive oil with freshly baked bread that’s a million miles away from anything you’ve ever bought in a supermarket, a Tuscany where glorious vistas unfold before your eyes as you crest a mountain road…
