Northwestern Tuscany
Why Go?
There is far more to this green corner of Tuscany than Italy's iconic Leaning Tower. Usu-
ally hurtled through at breakneck speed en route to Florence and Siena's grand-slam queue-
for-hours sights, this is the place to take your foot off the brake and go slow - on foot, by
bicycle or car. Allow for long lazy lunches of rustic regional specialities to set the pace for
the day, before meandering around a medieval hilltop village or along an ancient pilgrim-
age route.
Even the region's larger towns - university hub Pisa and 'love at first sight' Lucca with
its 16th-century walls ensnaring a labyrinth of butter-coloured buildings, Romanesque
palaces and gracious piazzas - have an air of tranquillity and tradition that begs the travel-
ler to linger. This is snail-paced Italy, and you're sure to love it.
