With a rich artistic heritage, stunning sea views and vineyard-crossed countryside, it is no wonder that many dream of living la dolce vita in this romantic Italian region.
And the photographer Scott E Barbour says:
The rolling vineyards of Chianti and rugged cliffs of the Tuscan coast make up one of the most iconic food destinations. The region is known for flavors like local olive oil on crispy schiacciata (flatbread), wild porcini mushrooms, artichokes cooked every way, fresh tomatoes in juicy panzanella, local cheeses like raviggiolo, famed bistecca alla fiorentina, and some of the world’s most celebrated wines.
