The Tuscany region

Il Podere is located at the border between Tuscany and Umbria, two of the most interesting regions of Italy, with a leading role during the medieval age and the Renaissance. The stunning artistic heritage is surely the main reason to plan a holiday in this area, but you will find much more: you will taste the local kitchen, with many dishes of the popular tradition, such as soupes made with cereals and legumes, or the famous fiorentina, a beef steak of the local breed called Chianina, the truffles, the cured meats and excellent olive oil and wine. You will find the medieval spirituality of St. Francis and St. Benedict in Assisi and Norcia, and the Spoleto festival (June and July), the Umbria Jazz festival in Perugia (July), the "fiera antiquaria" in Arezzo (monthly), that is the greatest antiques market in Italy, and the street markets in Cortona and Città di Castello. You will find the sweet and restful landscape of central Italy, and if you like sunbath and swimming enjoy the wonderful beaches of Trasimeno lake!

Tuscany and Umbria wish you a special holiday!
