Location description from manager

The Tuscany region

Tuscany (ital. Toscana) is bordered on the west by the long sandy beaches of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is sheltered to the north and east by the Apennine Mountains and the Apuan Alps. The region thus defined is one of great fertility, with the wines of the Chianti region and the superb olive oil of the area known to anyone who appreciates good food and wine.

The landscapes of Tuscany are perhaps more varied than in any other region of Italy, varying from the ancient marble quarries of the Apuan Alps to the sand dunes of the Tyrrhenian Coast, but it is the land between, in particular the Chianti district, that most readily comes to mind when we talk of Tuscany. Hilltop towns and villages dating back to Etruscan times are surrounded by vineyards where the vines form geometrically precise rows, olive groves alternate with undulating fields of wheat and sunflowers, slashed in spring by the vibrant red of poppies, and over all a sky of ineffable blue - this is a landscape that has changed very little since the Middle Ages.

No wonder that Tuscany today is so beloved of visitors who come for the exquisitely balanced attractions of culture and relaxation, great food and wine and scenery of entrancing beauty.

An essential feature of the landscapes of Tuscany, and of northern Italy in general, is the tall, slender spire of the Cypress tree. Yet this tree is not Italian in origin. It was brought to the region by the Etruscans, from Persia and Syria. The fact that it did not drop its foliage in winter gave it mythical and supernatural powers in their minds, and they used to plant it around their burial places - something which can still be seen throughout Italy and Greece, where the cypress tree is always to be found growing around churches and cemeteries.
Legend has it that if you fall asleep underneath a cypress, your soul will be stolen and you will never re-awaken....

Italy now has more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country in the world. In Tuscany there are:
- The Historic Centre of Florence
- The Leaning Tower of Pisa and buildings of the Piazza del Duomo
- The Historic Centre of Siena
- The Historic Centre of Pienza
- The Historic Centre of San Gimignano
- The Val d'Orcia

Castellina In Chianti

Chianti:
Chianti is the name of the region between Florence and Siena, where most of the wine-making of Tuscany is concentrated. The heart of this region is called Chianti Classico.
The wines of Chianti have come a long way from the days when they were bought more for the distinctive bottle with its raffia covering than for what was actually inside the bottle. Empty Chianti bottles were an essential element in nineteen-sixties decor in London bedsits and trattoria.
Today, Chianti wines are amongst the best produced in Italy, with the Classico appellation reserved for the highest quality, produced to very exacting specifications.

Siena:
Siena is simply stunning. Its breathtaking architecture, created in brick and marble, has survived amazingly, virtually intact, since the Middle Ages. Its great square, the Piazza del Campo, is considered to be one of the most beautiful public spaces in Europe, and is of course world-famous for the 'Palio', the traditional medieval horse race that still takes place twice yearly.

Siena is built on seven hills and made up of a winding maze of narrow streets and alleyways enclosed within the old city walls - designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a small city covering around a square mile and is easy and pleasant to walk around, though hilly.
Siena's long and complex history goes back to Roman and Etruscan times, and while it was not initially one of the region's most important cities, it later became powerful through trade.
It became a great banking and cultural centre, the fortunes of its inhabitants growing through textile manufacture, chiefly wool. For over 400 years it was in direct and frequently violent competition with Florence, leaving little time for development of the city itself. This, combined with the ravages of the Plague of 1348 that decimated the population, caused Siena to remain one of the most remarkable examples of a medieval city, where the visitor can sense for a while what life must have been like in the Middle Ages.

Like the bull-running of Pamplona, Siena's Palio has become world-famous, attended by large crowds and widely televised.

Though it is often a brutal and violent event, for rider and horse alike, the event is the source of a great deal of civic pride. It takes place on 2nd July and 16th August each year and dates back to the Middle Ages. The horses and riders stream through the narrow streets and emerge into the shell-shaped Piazza del Campo, in a riot of brilliantly-coloured medieval costumes and trappings. It bears absolutely no comparison with horse-racing elsewhere.

Siena is one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and, to quote the Organisation, "the whole city of Siena, built around the Piazza del Campo, was devised as a work of art that blends into the surrounding landscape."
When it comes to museums housing great art, Siena does not compare with Florence, but its Gothic and Romanesque buildings, unspoilt by the passage of time, are breathtaking. To stand in the Piazza del Campo as the sun sets is rather like being able to stand within a great work of art. The brick and stone of these marvellous buildings seems to glow in the sunset light.

Most of the building materials are of the earthy colours known as ochre and sienna. The colour comes from the iron and manganese pigments in the local clay used. This same clay (terra di Sienna) was the source of the artist's colour called sienna or burnt Sienna. The local mines petered out in the 1940's and the colour is now produced in Sicily and Sardinia and in the USA.
