In the midday sun the cypress trees, vineyards and olive groves appear as though behind a thin veil. The picture clears only when the sun has passed its zenith, and if there were no cars on these roads you would believe yourself to be in the middle of a Renaissance painting. Indeed, Michelangelo and Donatello were born here and Dante and Boccaccio helped promote the Tuscan dialect to become Italy's standard language. Embedded in the core of European civilization are historical treasures such as majestic Florence, tranquil Siena, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano and Arezzo, with their many sights including churches, palaces, monasteries, museums and galleries. Enjoy it all in moderation, like an old Chianti, and take time to explore the countryside with its magnificent little towns and simple but delicious cuisine.
