During our grand tour of Northern Italy in search of wedding venues, we were able to stop in Clusane for lunch, a little town situated on Lake Iseo. That is one of things I love about Europe, you can drive 30km and be in a totally different atmosphere- different food, different people, different accents. You can go from a bustling city to a lakeside laid-back village in the blink of an eye. In four hours, you can take the train from Bergamo to Siena (like we did) where you will find yourself amongst the gold, rolling hills and vineyards so typical of Tuscany. The Tuscan sun is brilliant, it warms the entire landscape until everything seems to glow. Florence was the home of so many artists simply for the rarity of this light and the desire to capture it in by any means. This post will mainly be photos, even though not even these do justice to the beauty of this region. Next post: food and wine tastings in Tuscany.
