Casentino, Hidden Tuscany

Casentino, Hidden Tuscany

Although you may have been to the main sites in Tuscany there are many more beautiful corners, breathtaking landscapes, and picturesque towns to explore.  Our travels will take us along the ridges of the Apennine mountains into the verdant forests of the national park of Casentino, to hidden monasteries and small villages, and to where the Arno river springs forth. History, castles, saints, hearty food, as well as kind people and good wine, abound!
