The Tuscany region
Located in the heart of Italy, Tuscany is surely one of the most famous Italian landscapes. The essence of this beautiful region are its natural, artistic, and cultural heritage.
Bounded by the Ligurian and the Tyrrhenian Sea (two arms of Mediterranean), this region is divided into ten provinces, whose capitals are Arezzo, Florence, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena. Florence is the capital city of the region itself.
Spring and fall are the best times to visit Tuscany, because the climate is mild. Bus-lines and trains connect the larger towns, but having a car would be a great advantage, and you would be easily able to enjoy the small towns and vineyards, which represent some of Tuscany’s strong points.
The “Chiantigiana road” is a must to see: it produces some of Italy’s finest wines. This is the colourful and legendary road of the “Chianti" region. The grape cultivation dates back to the Etruscan times. One of the biggest pleasures will be sipping different wines, at the wineries or at the wine bars scattered in the towns.
What about a drop in on “Mugello”? It is a countryside surrounded by oaks, chestnut trees and by the Apennines, This land of artists and painters have been source of inspiration in its farmhouses and colours. with kind people, authentic cooking, good wine, plus a great tradition in handicrafts.
Versilia is an area of 20 km sandy beaches located in the north of the region. The seaside with the colourful bathing areas is rich in bars and meeting places. Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi, Massarosa, Pietrasanta, Seravezza, Stazzema and Viareggio are the towns of this beautiful coast.
Let yourself be enraptured with the beauty of Sorano... lovely hamlet retreated onto a suggestive tuffaceous steep cliff with numerous slopes. The South of Tuscany homes this charming village (at 170 Km from Florence and 140 Km from Rome), who's history is reach in events and deserved glorious moments: its fortress's remained unconquered for centuries!
Sorano is characterized by a maze of pretty alleys, courts, ashlar portals, external staircases, loggias and cellars excavated into the tuff where, in the past, the locals made their grape harvests. The cellars in Sorano are particularly interesting and some of them have been carefully restored and made visitable. Among those special cellars, we must mention the "Locanda Aldobrandeschi" in via del Ghetto and the lovely restaurant "Hostaria Terrazza Aldobrandeschi", located on top of a tuffaceous spur overlooking the river Lente, from where to admire the colombarium and the necropolis of St Rocco.
Once in Sorano you'll be able to admire the imposing Fortezza Orsini, stunning fortified medieval castle, enlarged by the noble Orsini around the first half of the XVI century. The whole complex is used as Museum of the Middle Ages and Renaissance.
Porta di Sopra is one of the two doors leading to the village of Sorano, preceded outside by a lovely piazza characterized by a system of loggias from where to enjoy a breathtaking panorama. Via Selvi is the main street easily reachable once passed the door: if you are in the mood of doing some nice shopping, here you can find the best craftsmen of the area, beside the first synagogue of Sorano. Every year, from the 10th to the 20th of August, from Porta di Sopra to the lower part of the old town centre, towards Porta dei Merli, there's asuggestive market/exhibition of local handicrafts, where to find any type of "Soranese and Maremmano" craftmade products.
Porta dei Merli, known as Porta di Sotto, is situated at the foot of Masso Leopoldino. It shows a notable ashlar stone frame surmounted by a coat of arms. On both sides of the door you can still admire the vertical openings of the ancient drawbridge. Once passed the door outside the historical centre, you'll see the river Lenge flowing just below the medieval village of Sorano and represents a hugely valuable naturalistic, ambient, historical, cultural and archaeological site.
