Fiesole: il teatro romano ancora intatto

"La Rocca": al vertice di Santa Maria a Monte

Città del Tufo: scenografie suggestive e reali

Ancient jewels carved out of rock, perched on sheer spurs against spectacular natural scenery, they offer journeys through time and the history that shaped them, the memory and beauty of which they still preserve intact. 

Lago dell'Accesa: fra leggenda e magia

Lake Accesa and the legend of its creation: the monster and the magician. Between the Metalliferous Mountains and the Maremma there is a place charged with history and mystery, where folk beliefs are still alive in the minds of locals and beyond.
