Italian Food, Wine & Travel Discovers Tuscany

We're here celebrating our 4th Italian Food, Wine & Travel (#ItalianFWT) bloggers group and this month we travel to central Italy to the region of Tuscany! If you didn't get to join us last month we featured the Emilia Romagna and had great blogs to share.

This group consists of bloggers that have a deep appreciation and passion for Italy whether it comes from their travels to Italy or their appreciation of the fine wines and amazing cuisine. 

Tuscany, one of the most traveled of all the regions in Italy and it's no surprise as to why.  From the rolling hills vineyard filled from town to town, to the medieval cities, to my "hometown" and one true love - the capital of Tuscany Florence (Firenze in Italy), to the simple but flavorful cuisine.  Let's not forget about one of the most popular wines of the world that Tuscany gives to us, Chianti.
