The hilly landscapes of this part of Tuscany enclose a universe awaiting to be discovered. Medieval villages, treasures of the Renaissance and Gothic churches are tangible remains of Tuscany’s glorious past. Admire the profile of cypress trees along the road and enjoy the beautiful shades of the green and terracotta colours of this land. Explore the vineyards of Chianti and try some of Italy’s most appreciated wines produced in this area. Siena and San Gimignano are two of the most charming towns in Tuscany with their picturesque squares and cobbled streets. Hiring a car allows you the freedom to explore the countryside and driving in Tuscany is not difficult as the pace of life is slower here than in many Italian regions.
