If you are organizing beautiful holidays in the Tuscan countryside, here are 5 ideas that will make them truly unforgettable.
The countryside offers a lush and almost untouched nature, made of rolling hills where you can stay in complete relaxation but also high mountains where you can practice outdoor sports such as: trekking, horse riding, mountain biking, rafting and much more.
Cuisine is made with fresh and tasty products worked with mastery by chefs who follow tradition, obtaining a fragrant and simple cuisine that follows the seasons. Each location in the region has its own specialties, but how can we not mention the famous Florentine steak, pici pasta with wild boar ragout or potato tortelli?
There has never been a table without a good glass of wine, generally red and beautiful full-bodied. Wine always accompanies local gastronomic specialties, selecting from famous labels such as Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Vernaccia, or tasting lesser known but equally delicious wines.
