For the photographers out there looking for those perfect Tuscan shots, here are some important tips on where to find them. Grab a pen and pencil (in case… you know… the pencil breaks)
1) Drive all over Tuscany, especially the Val d’Orcia area
Hmmm, I swear I thought I had more tips, but I’m drawing a blank. I think this might be it – just drive around with your eyes open. Surely it would be challenging to drive with your eyes closed, but I’ve seen it done in Florida (and got the metal plate in my leg to prove it). But the truth is the entire Tuscany region is one giant postcard, and Val d’Orcia is perhaps as picture perfect as it comes. Simply going from point A to point B anywhere in that area will produce more unique landscapes, quite different than the drive you took to get to point A.
