most beautiful country sites in Tuscany

Anyone have a most beautiful place experience in Tuscany south of Florence? Landacape, town square, lodging etc?

Bob,
You must be a pro! I am saving your photos to study and hope you won't mind my questions about where some of them are. Thank you so much for responding!

Bob, Those are some beautiful pics. Seeing them made me even more excited about my first trip to Italy in May.
Thanks for sharing. CJ

Bob,
Those are absolutely beautiful. I bookmarked the site so I can enjoy them later.

"Dolomite respite" made me smile.

I liked Susan Siesta in the other section.

Are you the Tuscan traveler holding the guidebook?

Yep--that be me, but in 1996.
Grazie to all. Hardly a pro, just a persistent traveler who is lucky enough to put himself in the right place at the right time--with film in the camera. Most of these are digitized from old slides.

Bob, your pictures are wonderful. We will be in Tuscany in early June and can't wait.

Where is Devil's Bridge?

Devil's Bridge is just north of Lucca close to where the rivers meet on the way to Barga.

Be sure to see San Biagio church in Montepulciano and dine 6K away in Montefollonico at Chef Dania Lucherinnis "La Chusia " restaurant.

Bob,
I'm enthralled with your photo album, especially one titled "San Antimo" Please fill me in on the details.
Thanks.
What kind of camera are you using?

Quin, when in Tuscany, I recommend the Hotel Ravizza in Siena. This hotel has been widely praised on this board. Our room was on the third floor in the back. Our view was of the Tuscan hills, a landscape similar to that of a Renaissance painting. Siena is fascinating and an excellent locale from which to explore Tuscany.

Thanks Quinn !
St. Antimo is the abbey 7 miles south of Montalcino where the monks chant twice daily. That entire area is hard to beat for a taste of real Tuscany.
As for the camera, it really does not matter much. I am using digital now, but those shots were actually slides that were digitized--using Fuji Velvia film.
