Tuscany is where it's at

our take on this wonderful slice of Italy.

This region is Italy's most famous and the landscape and towns of Tuscany are much the "typical" impression that many have of Italy.

The area offers much more than Firenze, Red wine, the leaning tower, and romantic hill towns- though these are certainly reasons enough to visit..

Since getting married (way back in 02), was to easy to find an excuse to visit Toscana every year through 09.

A few reasons why...

.. we wouldn't mind continuing to come here every year:
The food, olive oil, wine
The smaller midieval towns
The larger art filled cities
Drives in the rolling hills...
la vita dolce for sure.

Always on the top of our list

In the following tips, you'll find some info on our favorite towns, and a few of the highlights from each.

Also check out the Travel Map of Tuscany that shows Tuscany with locations highlighted, for which we've created tips.
