That’s the ideal moment to go outside and to discover the outstanding sights and the characteristic Tuscanian boroughs. Weather is still chancy, and it can well go from rainy to sunny in a heartbeat, but this is even more of an opportunity to see nature’s peculiar colours. Landscapes change under our own eyes and each moment is under a different light. So choose your favorite bag, set your navigator and get ready to go! These are 5 places to see during the week end.
1) Pitigliano: history, culture and suggestive landscapes

It would be a shame to miss the “Vie Cave”, footpaths deeply grooved in stone.
