Sit back, relax and imagine yourself reaping Italy's rich harvest of pleasures. Acquaint yourself with Chianti in the idyllic village of Marcialla. Ponder, with anticipation, the many regional wonders you are about to explore. Sip sublime white wines and soothe your palate with fragrant olive oils at Castello di Monsantoin the heart of Chianti Classico. Travel to Pisa and be perplexed by its whimsical Leaning Tower before continuing on to ancient Lucca. Meander through Tuscany's character-infused hill country, stopping to visit San Gimignano and the crystal-laden town of Colle di Val d'Elsa. Finally, admire the Renaissance wonders of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Piazza della Signoria and Piazzale Michelangeloin Florence, and Siena's Mangia Tower and Duomo.
