The Tuscan countryside is not just similar to the postcards you can buy in towns but it‘s high above your expectations! Surrounded by cypresses, hills and small farmhouses with paths, you feel part of a fairy tale. In Tuscany wine tasting is a must as many different types of wine is cultivated like Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Rufina, Vernaccia, etc.
The countryside is the place which helps you relax during your stay. With a glass of Chianti wine in your hand, seeing the view of the real Tuscany gives you the sentiment that you are finally part of something that you desired. Now you understand why so many books, films talk about this region.
The countryside is where you find by chance a beautiful medieval church, chapel, a small village on the hill, a nice terrace with a view and tasty lunch or dinner. These experiences will last forever.
