Tuscany: Evocative landscapes

The distinctive and peaceful Tuscan countryside has, for centuries been a favourite haunt of travellers looking to escape the crowded cities. It is a region where the past and the present merge in pleasant harmony. Perhaps the mast spectacular sight anywhere in Tuscany is the hilltop town of San Gimignano, bristling with medieval towers, scarcely changed since the Middle Ages and offering a magnificent 360 degree view of the rolling Tuscan countryside. Sightseeing in Pisa creates the opportunity to view one of the loveliest architectural compositions in the world - the Cathedral, the Baptistry and the famous Leaning Tower - a matchless group of buildings! Siena is a treasure of history and art with its rich School of Senese Painting, the Cathedral, the Town Hall Palace rising from the lovely fan-shaped Piazza del Campo.
