Incredible landscapes and vibrant settings can be found in Tuscany, one of the most photogenic regions in the world.
Aside from the region’s famous wine production, Tuscany is known for its breathtaking landscapes and iconic architectural attractions. Tuscany has inspired painters and artists of all mediums with its moving, romantic beauty and sublime visual elegance.
From stunning sunsets to scenic countryside villas, Tuscany is rife with opportunities for photographers to capture incredible photographs. The following are just some of the reasons why Tuscany is a must-visit photography tour destination.
Landscapes full of life. A primary appealing feature of the Tuscan region as a photography tour destination is its landscapes. Vineyards and cereal crops are nestled below centuries-old villas in the undulating hills of the countryside. In the magnificent Val d’ Orcia, where we will be hosting a photography tour May 2015, you will find one of the most glorious countryside panoramas in the world. There is so much life and vibrant beauty to behold and capture in a photography tour of Tuscany.
Incredible and unmatched atmosphere. A magical part about photographing (or just visiting) Tuscany is that it feels that you are standing in the midst of one of the Renaissance paintings the masters created there in the 15th century. The region of Tuscany has a dawn and dusk like no other. Wherever you are, the golden hour at sunrise and sunset offer fantastic opportunities for images with vivid colors.
Iconic cypress trees offer diversity of texture. Tall cypress trees flank ancient villas and border lush vineyards, punctuating the gentle rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside. These trees are quintessential to the region, and are often accompanied by textured cloud formations above to create the opportunity for an exceptional photograph.
Architectural wonder and beauty. With the city of Florence at its heart, the region of Tuscany was the foundation of the Italian Renaissance. Some of the most brilliant historic architectural wonders and landmarks find their home in Tuscany, including Florence and Siena’s historic centers, the Cathedral of Pisa, the Val d’Orcia, Medici Villas and Gardens and more. These and other architectural wonders await for beautiful vignettes and village images.
