The Tuscany region

Italy is a wonderful country that combines stunningly landscape with unique culture. From it's modern cities to its classic

countryside there is such a variety of wondrous things to see and do. Italy's unique culture stems from its history of being many individual states/provinces.

Radda in Chianti

There are many fantastic things to do in the

local area. As well as all the normal tourist activities available there is a plethora of historical churches/monasteries that are well worth a visit. A trip here

would not be complete without sampling some of the delicious local food and, of course, the wine.
