For our 2017 travels through Tuscany we stayed in the Val d'Orciaand Crete Senesi areas.



There is a reason so many people visit Tuscany. The scenery is stunning. Oh yes, the food and wine are also very good but the scenes remain in your mind forever.

There is no single Tuscan scene. The region has a variety. From scenic beaches along the coast, hills covered with olive groves, rolling mountains, cypresses trees along small winding roadways, vineyards around every corner and barren tracks south of Siena. Tuscany is a visual treat.

Tuscany Map

A good number of years ago, back in 2008 we read a magazine article in Travel + Leisure recommending to take the time to really travel in Tuscany and drive the strade bianche -- the white roads. We recommend the Michelin map and you will find the red National Roads including Autostrada class highways, the green country roads and then the smaller white roads. That is the way to really travel a small area at a time.

Tuscany, as shown in the map to the right, is made up of a number of provinces that include Firenze, Arezzo, Siena etc.

The links below lead to specific pages where we provide information on that particular area of Tuscany. Enjoy!
