Photographs by Alex Ramsay.

Traveling from north to south through the region, we encounter first towns with substantial Etruscan and Romanesque features, then the walled towns of central Tuscany, followed by the coastal and thermal communities of the south.

The country towns described and photographed in this book have been selected not only to exemplify the remarkable variety of this part of Italy but also because they embody its exceptional artistic and architectural heritage.

Other aspects of their rich cultural patrimony are more ancient: the Etruscans and the Romans both left their distinct imprint.

The richness of these towns is also gastronomic: the Chianti and Orcia valleys, dominated by Montepulciano, produce superb wines; bread is justly celebrated in the area around Montecatini. Other towns have non, gastronomic specialities: alabaster in Volterra, flowers in Pescia, books in Pontrémoli.

Twenty of the most beautiful towns of this opulent land are treated in this visual and textual feast by Alex Ramsay and James Bentley, which is completed by a guide to the principal sights, events, hotels and restaurants of each town.

James Bentley, a distinguished travel writer who specialized in Italy and France, is the author of the volumes on Tuscany, The Dordogne, Burgundy, England and Brittany in the Most Beautiful Villages series. Alex Ramsay is one of Britain's leading photographers of architecture and gardens, with a special interest in Italy. He is a regular contributor to The World of Interiors, House & Garden, Homes & Gardens, Country Living, Country Life and other publications.
