We come here for the same reasons Shelley, Stendhal and Twain did. To behold the astonishing light, breathtaking views and learn the secrets of a life well-lived. Passing vines tended by generations of winemakers and savouring traditional cuisine made from the freshest and tastiest local ingredients, this is the region you imagine when you think of Italy. Home to olive groves and cypress trees, Roman battlefields and Renaissance churches, and a who’s who of charming villages. It can’t help but capture your soul.
