Volterra

 
Volterra Volterra is one of the finest and lesser known hilltop towns tucked away in the heart of Tuscany only a short distance from Florence, Siena, Pisa, S.Gimignano. Idyllically set amidst an evocative landscape of soft rolling hills and lush woodland abruptly defined by barren, deep clay walled chasms gullies and ravines, Volterra, 545 metres above sea level, dominates and divides the Cecina and Era valleys, a haven of Etruscan, Roman, Medieval and Rennaissance art and architecture. The epheremal landscape enhances the mystery, isolation and romantic melancholy that pervades this unique, artistic haven, set in the heart of Tuscany. Volterra is a city of stone. Its narrow streets,looming towers,and majestic palaces and f...
 

Lazio

 
Lazio Lazio (Latium in those days) was the heart of the Roman Empire. It still is very much the province of the perennial city of Rome. Although there are other interesting sights, most tourists will head for Rome immediately. And who can blame them Rome is one of the most beautiful cities on the planet and a must see for everyone. Around Rome there are quite a few interesting places you can visit as daytrip. Tivoli , Subiaco and Frascati have been favourite summer retreats of the Romans since the ancient days. Ostia Antica the old Roman port has some of the best classical remains in Lazio. In the hills of Lazio there are three lakes where you can go to relax and swim. Lake Bracciano is close to Rome and can be re...
 

Marche

 
Marche Less than 10.000 sq. km., four provinces (Pesaro-Urbino, Ancona, Macerata, Ascoli Piceno), 246 municipalities each one with its own original configuration, the Marches (the only Italian region with a plural name) is truly a beautiful territory or, as politicians and economists say, one big town. It is a town where it is possible to find everything: a coast delimitating the territory lengthwise with characteristic variations of landscape, in some places composed of wide and sandy beaches, in others of rocks sheer to the sea. The plain is gentle with a varied choice of cultivations which seem to be arranged depending an their colours and many little towns testify mens active presence. Mountains are not so high and are...

Pitigliano

 
Pitigliano The town is situated on a steep tuff rock, 313 metres above sea-level. The area of Pitigliano and far to the south of Rome is characterised by tuff stone, a hardened type of volcanic magma. The typical Tuscan landscape with small farm houses on soft hills is rarely found here. South Tuscany is wild and many sided, similar to neighbouring Latio, the area around Rome. Small creeks have cut steep valleys into the landscape and there is a lot of woodland. Not far from Pitigliano is Lake Bolsena, a huge water-filled crater and the largest Italian lake. From Siena you can see Mount Amiata, an isolated volcano 1738 metres high, and a favourite skiing area in winter. Near the coast are extended flat zones, which were notoriou...
