Under a Tuscan Sun

29 February 2012

Drive past rows of slender cypress trees to explore tiny medieval hill towns overlooking rolling landscapes of olive groves. Learn to cook mouth-watering cuisine while sipping Chianti Classico in hill top villages. In Florence, gaze in awe upon Michelangelo’s David at the Galleria dell Accademia and Botticelli's Birth of Venus in the Uffizi Gallery. In Siena, stroll around the Campo, the central market square and scene of the Palio, Tuscany’s unmissable festival, held annually on 2 July and 16 August. In Pisa, lunch in the Piazza dei Miracoli and climb to the top of the famous Leaning Tower.
