Two trips to Florence and Tuscany prompted us to write this book. We have been amazed by Florence, the Tuscan Hill Towns, and The Cinque Terre. Architecture and history are discussed for the entire region. The towns in this book are Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pisa, Riomaggiore, Manarola, Vernazza, and Monterosso. The Cinque Terre emphasizes the 400 year old towns and their architecture.
