Overview

Tuscany is renowned for its remarkable cuisine, dramatic scenery, and long, rich history. Accept this warm invitation to walk the streets and wander through the countryside of one of Italy's--and the world's--most beautiful regions. Breathtaking color images present a panoramic view of its landscape, filled with fertile fields and steep hills; majestic fortresses; cypress-lined roads; rural towns; and ancient edifices. See the view from the Rocca degli Aldobrendeschi, which displays Tuscany's classic curved red-clay roof tiles. Visit the vineyards of Montalcino, which yield one of the world's most prized wines. Of course, the pictures capture the people too, at the market, deep in conversation, plying age-old trades. From charming wisteria-covered walls to luscious-looking food being prepared, every image beckons you to come.

After recently returning from Italy, the Minnesota winter made me miss the warmth of Tuscany. This book was a great remedy. Its photographs capture not only the beauty, but also the feeling of the place. A great book to remininsce with, or to pick up if you plan on going to Tuscany and want a preview.
