As the summer sun ascends over the rustic village of Tuscany, the vibrant colors of the new harvest materialize into focus.
My wife and I gaze over the fields as we pick a variety of sunflowers for our breakfast table. The serenity is astounding this time of year. During the morning, no sound but the fountain water trickling down to the fish-filled pond can be heard. We decide to linger at a nearby table and enjoy the tranquility for a while. After some time, the silence is broken by the gentle strumming of a guitar that can be heard throughout the area.
As my eye’s focus across this breath taking land, I wonder of its past history. The many decades of stories that have enriched Italy’s gem countryside. I notice a small Tuscan village with a variety of churches with beautiful steeples further in the distance. A summer in Tuscany is filled with special surprises and delectable authentic food around every corner. We will forever cherish these memories of our “Summer in Tuscany.”
