Get Inspired / Italy Tuscany and Umbria, Italy Share on email Print this article Share on Facebook Get Inspired / Italy Tuscany and Umbria, Italy story by: Inspire France & Italy Cypresses and sunflowers, terracotta roofs, delicious wines and food: Tuscany is everyone’s idea of idyllic Italy. The towns of Tuscany entice the visitor with stone watchtowers, magnificent cathedrals and medieval lanes - Siena, Arezzo, San Gimignano, Lucca and Florence. The countryside beckons too, for languid days spent drinking Chianti under a grape arbour or learning how to cook classic Tuscan dishes. Cycle through remote villages, untouched by mass tourism. Umbria lies next door and treasures its tranquil valleys, pristine villages and sense that time ahs stood still. Italy’s largest fortress looms over its capital Perugia; pilgrims visit the tomb of St Francis in Assisi and Ovieto’s cathedral will take your breath away.
