Tuscany Photos

While our boat is at Island Packet Yachts for ReFit, we are at home...
After our group tour of Italy, we stayed one more week in the Tuscany area to tour the wine country. We rented a condo via RCI in the beautiful hillside town of Loro Cuiffenna with waterfalls and street side cafes and bakeries. From this location, we drove (over 1,000 km.) into the Chianti Region and tour vineyards and hilltop towns from the 11th century! Italy, a wonderful place to get lost...

Here are some photos of the Tuscany Area:
