Travel Inspiration: Essential Tuscany & Unexpected Umbria
Head for the hills… of Tuscany and Umbria, that is. Where la dolce vita is the only way to go. Where the reds pour freely, and your taste buds hardly have time to recover from your last great meal. Where medieval towers rocket into blue skies. Where the cathedrals are blessedly ancient, and the latest gossip enlivens an evening in the local piazza.
During our 10-day Essential Tuscany & Unexpected Umbria itinerary, we explore Siena, Hill Towns, Wine Regions, and Perugia.
Submerge yourself. How can you resist? Begin in Florence, Italy. You are driven into the Tuscan countryside to the ancient city of Siena, a town at odds with Florence during much of its history. As Dante wrote in the Inferno, Siena’s greatest moment came in 1260 when it defeated Florence.
