Explore the beautiful city center or venture further into the countryside and witness the marvelous rolling hills of Tuscany studded with charming medieval villages. Beautiful views and a charming culture await you in Tuscany.

The most famous area to explore is the Chianti region, a blessed land that covers a rather large wine-producing region of Tuscany, reaching from Florence to Siena, and all the way out to Pisa.

Along the road visit the Badia di Coltibuono and/or Castello di Brolio and do not forget to pick up some wine to enjoy at the villa.
