Tuscany is one of the most charming regions in Italy. It impresses with its unique, multi-faceted landscape. Vineyards mix with olive groves and alternate with the very original landscape. Again and again, cypress avenues with slender trees protruding into the blue sky determine the landscape. The "strada bianca" called unpaved access roads to farms and wineries, hotels and restaurants are characteristic of Tuscany. Many of the side streets that repeatedly lead through sleepy villages are hardly used. A backdrop that the Italian film of the 1950s couldn't do better. Southern Tuscany is also something for culture lovers: cities like Siena and San Gimignano, fortresses such as the citadel of Dante Alighieri already mentioned in his "Divine Comedy".
