This beautiful area is populated with many ancient Etruscan hill top towns and medieval castles. The terrain is undulating rolling hills, valleys and forests offset by mountains that are home to many picturesque small Italian villages and towns. Life in this particular area has remained relatively unchanged. The local foods, wines and restaurants maintain the charm of an unspoiled Italian culture. This is a unique opportunity for those who have been searching to discover and photograph in Italy where few tourists find their way.
