More Landscapes of Tuscany

Tuscany's beauty changes with the season. In spring and autumn the hills and valleys are verdant.  In summer, a period of lower rainfall, the landscape turns golden, as the crops mature before harvest.






Many of Tuscany's hills and valleys are covered with vineyards, which produce a number of famous wines including Chiantis and Brunellos .  Life in Tuscany is a celebration of nature and  agriculture is an important aspect of this region's unique signature.  If you are seduced by the agricultural side of Tuscany, you may want to consider staying at a farmhouse for an "agriturismo" holiday.  If so, take a look at the site for some ideas on the types of lodging available.
