Wine tour in Tuscany
 

With respect to its hills and mountains, everyone agrees that the first thing that strikes one about the beauty of Tuscany is its variety. By this we mean the abundance of high ground, summits and crests arranged in no apparent order, with a prevalence of hilly or very hilly country, mountains which occasionally rise to about 2000 metres well over 6000 ft. but are generally far more modest, and plains along the rivers and near the coast, which cover a bare 10 per cento of the total area of the region. In the Garfagnana, the Apennines and the Apuan Alps, the mountains can even resemble the Dolomites, and indeed they might be thought of as the ‘Tuscan Alps.’ Further south we find the beginnings of the centrai Italian Apennines, which are calcareous, usually bare, and rounded in out line. Between this range and the coast is a series of irreg ularly alligned ridges, usually between 600 and 1000 metres in height say, 2 3 thousand feet, stretching north west and south east between Montecatini and Monte Amiata. This is the so called Antiappennino, in the centre of which is the system usually known as the Colline Metallifere. The plains, other than those along the coast, occupy the basins of the rivers Arno, Chiana and Tiber.
