5-star guide to Tuscany

It's not just the verdant rolling scenery that gives Tuscany its soul.

A few minutes drive from central Florence, you will find olive groves scattered among vineyards on rolling hills, with a gentle mist hugging the lowland at night. It's unbelievably beautiful. Welcome to Tuscany. 

Hire a car at Pisa airport or Florence (or even Rome) and explore. Drive south from Florence and take in the verdant green landscapes of Chianti, then the rolling hills of the Val d'Orcia where you will find hilltop towns, like picturesque Pienza, that will simply take your breath away. Continue further south and west to the prairies of the Maremma, where cowboys still do roam, tending white herds of 'Chianina' beef cattle and where a new generation of wine makers have brought us fabulous 'Super Tuscan' wines like Ornellaia and Sassicaia - and more besides. The Maremma is also the finest part of the Tuscan coast, where the Tyrrhenian sea meets the exquisite Maremma National Park.
