The weather wasn´t nice when we were in Tuscany last year. During spring break in first days of May there were only rainy days and we were trying hard every day to find a few places without rain. We found them, but without sun the colors just aren´t right. Never the less Tuscany´s landscape is that sort to touch someone´s inside and outside factors aren´t the most important ones.
We are very fond of Italy and we love it. Its taste, colors, smells, language, temperament… So this year we are going back again. This time not in Tuscany but because it is so close and easy accessible it represents beautiful step away from everyday life even if it is just for a long weekend. For everyone that likes beautiful nature and gourmet delight is Tuscany must-do, so you treat yourself with it from time to time, for your soul. J We were thrilled with landscape south east from Siena and is called Crete. And of course Val d Orcia with Montepulciano, which deserves its own article on this traveler´s site.
