You will be placed near some of the most famous and characteristic villages in Tuscany: Cortona, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, and others.
If you are a wine enthusiast, don't forget to take (and not in a rush) the Via Chiantigiana, a road crossing the whole area which produces the Chianti wine.
You will cross a land rich in hills whose slopes display vineyards and whose tops are embellished by towers of medieval hamlets and bell-towers of age-old churches. There are also wine-cellars and restaurants where you will be able to taste the Tuscan cuisine while drinking a glass of Chianti wine, renown all over the world.
If you enjoy fashion and going shopping, don't forget that Florence is one of the fashion capitals of the world. You can indulge yourself in the many fine shops in the center of Florence.

You are likely to find clothes and objects of the Italian haute couture for very reasonable prices in some of these stores!!
