This guide covers everything from the wine roads of Chianti to the savage peaks of southeast Umbria. Wildlife reserves, beaches and spas are all featured, with details on how to get to them, where to stay - and which are the ones that justify the hype. And the contemporary side of life is given coverage too with the inside information on everything from the threat to the Montalcino vineyards the current state of FC Fiorentina, Roberta Baggio's old club.
