The sun shines differently on Tuscany! It illuminates the meandering back roads over the cypress-lined hills leading to a sea of Chianti vineyards. So engulfing, time appears to stop or perhaps rolls backward.

The bicycle changed transport and further connected Italy’s villages and cultural centers of Florence and Rome. They helped locals build a nation in the Industrial era and Tuscans to reach their neighboring villages. Once only locally-known dishes, olive oils, and wines spread abroad.
