This map covers the following areas:
If you happen to be in driving around south of Siena, and it happens to be lunch time, you might want to head for a trattoria in San Angelo in Colle called Il Pozzo. Taking you to your seat in the small comfortable dining room, your host will recommend the pinci. Pinci? you ask, not knowing what it is exactly. Pinci, explains your host, is a hand made pasta and today it is being served al ragu, with a rich meat sauce. He seats you, hands you a well worn menu, folds his hands over his well endowed midsection and continues When I have a particularly long day my wife will look at me lovingly and ask if I want a little pinci for supper and I always say yes. Judging by the girth of your host, you realize that having a long day may not be such a bad thing in these parts and you put down your menu and tell him to bring on the pinci. You have made a wise choice.
Such is an excursion in Tuscany. You don’t push it here, you go with the flow. If someone asks "Pinci?," you say "Yes please." This is one of the most magical places on earth, and has been since well before the Romans, so trust that there is a reason that things are the way they are here and go with it. You won’t be disappointed and if you are, then you probably have a good story to tell anyway.
Now this advice applies to the authentic that you’ll find in Tuscany, and not the hyped up tourist venues. There’s plenty of authentic to be found and that’s where the STREETWISE® Tuscany Map comes in. Instead of the packaged itinerary that you find in most guide books, venture off on your own. Explore a little. Drive down that twisty road to a village that isn’t listed in anything that you’ve read. Find that piazza where you can enjoy an espresso in a café and do absolutely nothing except watch life take its course in true provincial fashion. Fill your picnic basket with goodies from several shops and head for the top of a Tuscan hillside where you can enjoy the view of sloping fields lined by cypress trees, softened by the warm hazy light that washes over everything.
It’s all there; you just need to find it. And find it you will with our STREETWISE® Tuscany Map; from the green hills and vineyards of Chianti to the beaches on the Tyrrhenian coast, to the peaks of the Apennines and on to the spas of Montecatini.
