TUSCANY - Steeped in centuries of history, the cultural region along the Arno is one of the most beautiful in Italy, if not the whole of Europe. The very landscape radiates harmony and a deep sense of peace, while the wealth of impressions is enough to intoxicate the senses. Toscana has been capturing the hearts and minds of travellers for hundreds of years. The greatest attraction for the region's visitors is of course the cities of Florence, Lucca, Pisa, Siena and Perugia with their rich culture, along with a number of gorgeous smaller towns such as Lucignano with its old artisan workshops and good restaurants, the renowned Pienza, Chiusi, Montepulciano or the natural beauties of the lake Trasimeno; and for those who love shopping the Valdichiana Outlet Village is only 4 km away from the estate.
A trip to San Gimignano with its high medieval towers is absolutely recommended. Or a tour to Pienza with its town centre preserved almost unchanged ever since the Renaissance. Or a visit to Suvereto -
without a doubt one of Italy's most beautiful villages. Wandering through the softly rolling hills - planted with the slim cypress trees that give the landscape its characteristic appearance - you'll come across vineyards at every turn. This is the origin of red wines as well known and well loved as Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Nobile di Montepulciano and Tignanello. To get a more intensive look at the area, Monte Amiata (1738 m) is the perfect opportunity for an excursion to untouched natural surroundings. This inactive volcano is a popular skiing destination in winter, and in summer a great place for trekking fans, especially as its peak offers an incomparable view out over the whole of central Italy. And then of course, there's the sea and the extremely varied coast: including the wild Maremma, where the butteri herd their cattle on horseback. Or the coastal town of Viareggio, famous for its art deco architecture. Forte dei Marmi is stylish and smart, and the resort of Punta Ala has been a popular meeting place for the elite for many years.
