The charm and food and wine of the valleys: the Chianti Valley, the Val d’Orcia and the Valdichiana are certainly the best known, with their characteristic vineyards and cultivated fields, where some of the best known wines and gastronomic products of Italy originate.

Mountains: Tuscany offers everything mountain lovers could wish for in spring and summer, namely the possibility of trekking and nature walks.
