Landscapes of Tuscany.
Since the days of Michelangelo, Tuscany has been a source of inspiration of famous painters, poets, sculptors and writers. Six cities of the region have been included in the list of the World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, no other part of Italy may boast about such concentration of architectural monuments. We have mentioned earlier about Florence, the capital of Tuscany, and this time we would like to discuss in more detail the natural treasures of Tuscany.
One can confidently say that the nature of Tuscany has not been neglected by the wonders of nature. Incredibly beautiful landscapes of Tuscany are well known even to those who hardly know where Italy is located. Seventy per cent of the territory is occupied by the hills, Tuscany has outlet to two seas and even the Alpes are also situated in this area.

Due to the fact that agriculture is the basic occupation of the local non-urban population, each piece of land is cultivated with care, and this affects favorably first of all the overall view of Tuscany landscapes. Here and there chains of intermingling hills, tipped with gold of the sun, are stretching far away to the foggy distance as far as the eye can see. The local landscape is ideal for fantastic play of light and shadow when the sun beams tangled in the branches of the high cypresses throw their inimitable shadows on the valleys.
Well, of course, Tuscany landscapes are hardly thinkable without symmetrical rows of vineyards, which stretch for many kilometers through hills and valleys. It is especially pleasant that the local population doesn’t bother regarding installation of all types of fences around their lands, that is why you may quietly enjoy the views as far as you can see and no foreign objects would prevent the eye from peacefully gliding over the hills.
Let me give you a sound advice of an experienced traveller. Being in Tuscany, don’t be too lazy and wake up early in the morning, when it is still dark and depart to the countryside for admiring the dawn. Please, believe me, you will get unforgettable impressions and see one of the most beautiful rises of the sun for all of your life. If you manage to have a cup of full-flavoured Italian coffee in one of the cozy cafes on top of the hill, from where you can see a wonderful view of the valley, so the feeling of magic and unreality of what is around will not abandon you for a long time.
