Tuscany, Italy

BELLA TUSCANY From the glories of Renaissance Florence, with its wealth of artistic treasures, to the golden landscape and hilltop towns of the Tuscan countryside; from the terraces of the Chianti and Montepulciano vineyards to Pisaís famous Leaning Tower and Siena´s scallop-shaped medieval piazza; from San Gimignano -the city of towers- to Cortona a unique Ethruscan gem: this is a region that has fed the imagination and delighted the senses of countless visitors for many years.

LA DOLCE VITA In Italian, la dolce vita literally translates as ďthe sweet lifeĒ. La dolce vita in Italy means a life of pleasure and simple luxury; itís about enjoying the good things in life and about really indulging in the things you love. Italians are known for their relaxed pace of life, and they know the importance of not taking things too seriously, except for food, wine and sports cars. More importantly, they know when to kick back and relax. Tuscany is one of the best places to experience this relaxed lifestyle, with its rolling hills and their cypress trees sentinels watching over miles and miles of olive groves and vineyards and a whole host of beautiful locations to explore.

IL DOLCE FAR NIENTE (The sweetness of doing nothing) Make like the Italians and slowly sip a cappuccino in a medieval piazza in a little village, enjoy a lavishly long lunch and make sure you get plenty of coffee and gelato breaks! Then swift with your classic convertible on laid back and inspiring roads connecting villages to enjoy the views, the sounds and the smells of Tuscany.
