||Tuscany is one of the few
regions on earth that lives up to its hype.
As the birthplace of the Renaissance it holds one of the
greatest concentrations of artistic achievements known to man. The
Duomo, the Battistero, and the Galleria Degli Uffizi, which houses
the works of Da Vinci, Raphael, and Botticelli are all here. Combined
with its rolling countryside of checkerboard fields and green vineyards specked with red tiled farmhouses, cycling Tuscany
feels like doing the Tour of "Enhance".
Sensory overload, however, is not restricted to sight.
Tuscany is also the land of porcini mushrooms, virgin olive oil, and
hearty stews. And thanks to its Chianti vineyards, there's enough red
wine to make the Leaning Tower of Pisa appear straight.
