Think of an Italian countryside holiday and you think of the rolling hills of Tuscany, lined with avenues of cypress trees, streaked with vineyards, dotted with hilltop villages. The combination of history, culture, architecture, cuisine and scenic beauty is hard to beat anywhere in the world, and gives the region a spiritual attraction thatís simply magnetic.
