The Italian region of Toscana is tailor-made for romance, so it’s no wonder it was the muse for films ranging from Under the Tuscan Sun to Stealing Beauty. A 'nation within a nation', its vibrant culture gave birth to the Italian Renaissance, the dazzling city of Florence, and museums such as the Uffizi and the Pitti Palace. As if that wasn’t enough, it also has more churches, palaces, galleries, museums, villages, piazzas and scenic villas than you could possibly visit in one lifetime.

With a fairly mild climate along the Tyrrhenian Sea, its rainier interior provides lush soil ideal for growing wines such as Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Brunello di Montalcino. The perfect pairing with haute-rustic cuisine and falling in love with a mysterious stranger.
