Ah, Italia!

Urban creativity to serene rural splendor; rewards are everywhere for those exploring the paradise that is Tuscany.

I’m sure I must be part Italian – though my English and Irish ancestors would deny it. So many things about Italy touch my heart. The history, the art, the music, the language – and the food! Who wouldn’t like to claim a bit of this glorious heritage? Italy is a contrast in sensory overload … the excitement and abundance of centuries of creativity in its cities vies with the rural beauty and serenity of the countryside.
