AT FORTY FIVE MAGAZINE / 10 Villa le Torri; Experience True Italian Living / BY SHERRY KALLERGIS If you want to experience true Italian living, consider Agriturismo, agriculture tourism Italian style. It provides a window into the very heart and soul of Italy. You can have a fabulous vacation staying in beautiful rural accommodations and getting close and personal with the families running farms, vineyards, and olive groves. When you're visiting a tourist destination like Rome and the Colosseum, you're there with every other tourist from around the t world. When you stay in a small place, you really get more of a sense of being in Italy and what it's like to live and work there. Do plan to arrive in Rome though. Spend a few days exploring 2500 years of history before heading out to relax in the countryside. Villa le Torri; In The Heart Of Tuscany Villa le Torri is the perfect place if you want to experience Tuscany. It is a beautiful medieval 12thcentury villa in the heart of the Chianti region owned and operated by Gabriele and his family. Nestled among fruit trees, gardens, and an olive grove, I highly recommend you rent a car as there are key destinations to visit all within an hour’s drive. Siena is a beautiful medieval city spread over three hills. You can explore the Piazza del Campo and The Cathedrals of Santa Maria Assunta where you will see works of famous Italian artists.

Do not pass up Vinci, which is the home of Leonardo DaVinci. You can spend time looking over his notebooks in Museo Leonardiano and delving into all things DaVinci. Conti Guidi Castle again is a medieval gem that will keep you fascinated for hours. Then there is the Cinque Terre, five villages standing guard over the Italian Riviera.
