Description
Italy expert Tim Jepson takes you on an unforgettable tour around one of the world's most alluring regions. From the Renaissance gem of Florence, to such charming Tuscan villages as Siena, Montepulciano, and Montalcino, to the pastel-hued villages of Cinque Terre, and beyond, you'll fall in love with this area's art, culture, cuisine, history, and beauty. Features include self-guided walks in the heart of Florence and Siena, as well as drives through the wine-famous Chianti countryside and through the glorious Casentino. Experiential sidebars make sure you get to know the intimate side of the place, including learning to make the locally loved pappardelle pasta, helping to cultivate olives for the famed olive oil, and speaking a bit of Italian yourself. A Travelwise section details practicalities, including where to find the most gracious inns, delicious cooking, and tucked-away wineries.   Aimed at active travelers who want authentic, enriching, cultural experiences and expert advice from a trustworthy source, National Geographic Travelers provide ways for people to experience a place rather than just visit, and give the true feel of each destination not easily found online. - from Amzon
