Tour nei dintorni
CORTONA & LAKE TRASIMENO: A place of dreams
Cortona is an Etruscan jewel of the past. The prevailing character of Cortona’s architecture is medieval with steep narrow streets situated on a hillside (600 meters), embracing a view of the whole of the Valdichiana. The town's chief artistic treasures are two panels by Fra Angelico in the Diocesan Museum, an Annunciation and a Madonna and Child with Saints. A third surviving work by the same artist is the fresco above the entrance to the church of San Domenico. From Cortona you can travel to Lake Trasimeno, surrounded by charming villages, particularly Passignano, that appears to be locked between undulating green hills and the azure lake. Of note, Cortona was the setting for ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’ by Frances Mayes.
From the rolling hills of Chianti to the sea:
Colle Val d’Elsa is the birthplace of Arnolfo di Cambio, as well as the Italian crystal industry (which dates back to 500 AD). It’s a village where history & art blend to form a lifestyle. Perched upon a panoramic hilltop in the Maremma region you will find the town of Massa Maritime. Its historic center, surrounded by walls is one of the most important in Tuscany. Narrow ancient roads lead you to this magical place and its timeless architecture will leave you in wonderment.
South of Siena
In an area of ancient medieval battlegrounds and a landscape that changes with the seasons is where you will find the land of ‘Arbia’: Montalcino, the region of “Brunello”, Pienza (home of Pope Paul II) and the Etruscan village of Montepulciano. It’s about an hour’s drive along the ancient road ‘Via Cassia’ toward Rome.
San Gimignano & Volterra
A road trip through Tuscany would not be complete without a visit to these towns. The rolling hills along the way are simply breataking and the trip will take you back in time. Volterra is renowned for alabaster. It is a city of stone with its narrow streets, looming towers and majestic palaces and fortifications made of yellow-grey fossil infused sandstone. San Gimignano has managed to conserve fourteen towers (of the original 72) which date back to the 11th & 13th centuries and has retained its feudal atmosphere and appearance. The town also has several masterpieces of 14th- and 15th-century Italian art. It is a UNESCO world heritage site and the location for some of the filming of Franco Zeffirelli’s ‘Tea with Mussolini’. The drive is an hour or so.
CHIANTI REGION: between forests & vineyards
While the Chianti region is famous for its wine, the area is also truly one of Italy’s most spectacular. The undulating hills, dotted with cypress trees, stunning vineyards and ancient villages are stunning to behold. Just some of the smaller villages worth a visit are: Radda in Chianti, Volpaia & Lamole. At the end of a day’s drive in the region you may see villagers returning home along ancient dirt roads that were once part of historic battlegrounds, while the smell of flowers and lavender perfume the air and the sun sets on a magical day in a breathtaking land.
