       Tuscany

       It is the ‘heart and soul’ of Italy. Giants like Michelangelo are buried here with so many others that represent the genius of the ‘Renaissance’. In the Pantheon of St.Croce in Florence it’s unnerving to read the names of those buried here: Galileo, Sandro Botticelli, Raphael Sanzio, the list of ‘genius’ seems endless. Human Legends lived here for those extraordinary 150 years.
       But Tuscany is more than Renaissance memories. It is more than Mediaeval towns like Siena and San Gimignano, more than Tuscan hill-top locations like Pienza and Montepulciano. Most of all , it’s a place you want to revisit again and again because you begin to realize it is part of your soul, part of the legacy of Western Civilization.
