I've written these few words to give you an idea of the country where I was born and where I live as well as to give you a few advices about those places and spots which I guess should be visited during your stay in Tuscany.

In this very personal and particular section you find the renowned places of Tuscany together with a few places which, even if not so famous as the other ones, I do recommend you to visit during your vacation.

This area include my personal selection of restaurants and bars, those places where I'm used to go with my friends, places that I do appreciate for their atmosphere and their food.
