Description

Follow me through the Tuscany of the Tuscans, come and discover the much praised lights, the landscapes that are no longer presented, and approach this trip with the eye of the photographer

You will visit the typical villages of Tuscany and enjoy the landscapes in this autumn season when all the fields are being ploughed. You will enjoy the olive harvest and thus you will realize a photographic report around each aspect that makes Tuscany a splendid destination and not so far from us. Get ready to eat well, have fun, laugh and have a good time!

If you are interested in photo trips, why not let yourself be tempted by these stays in the Bardenas desert, in the Gran Paradiso National Park, in the sea and mountain atmosphere of Corsica or in the fjords and highlands of Iceland?
