Tuscany is, incredibly, everything you’d hope for: world-class art and architecture, stone hill towns and delicious local cuisine.
It is a delicious discovery to find that pretty much every cliché you ever heard about Tuscany is true. Cities are stuffed with art and architecture from the Gothic and Renaissance periods. The Medieval frescoes of San Gimignano’s Collegiata; Masaccio’s frescoed Brancacci Chapel, in Florence
; Piero della Francesca’s Legend of the True Cross in Arezzo… you are just scratching the surface. Stone hill-towns survey mile after mile of hazy, vine-clad hills. A simple plate of wild-boar salami is washed down with a glass of Brunello di Montalcino. Oh, yes, a Tuscany holiday will always leave you wanting more.
