Located in the center of Italy, Tuscany extends from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea. Enjoy this week’s installment of Inspiration Friday ~ Tuscany where old world mixes with nature, the modern age, and wine country!
Inspiration Friday ~ Tuscany
With a landscape that encompasses artistic heritage and exceptional old world cities like Florence, this region of Italy draws millions of tourists, aspiring writers, hopeless romantics, and wine lovers every year.
The long sandy beaches, rocky cliffs, and steep headlands draws nature lovers as well and hikers alike.
Surrounded by Mediterranean, the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, vegetation, a crystal-clear sea and rich seabeds, are unlike any other in the world.
Visitors can appreciate landscapes of untainted nature in the Apuan Alps and in many protected areas, likethe Orbetello Lagoon, which is home to various species of migrant birds.
The typical backdrops of the region are those that combine the beauty of nature with the work of local laborors. The astonishing Gulf of Baratti and locations like Vetulonia, Vulci and Pitigliano safeguard graveyards and relics of the Etruscan civilization, while Roselle and Cosa induce memories from the Roman Empire.
One of my favorite cities in Tuscany is Chianti, a magnificent countryside blanketed with vineyards that produce its namesake wine shipped around the world.
This week’s installment of Inspiration Friday ~ Tuscany is inspired by the two months that I will spend there next month.
