10 Films Set in Beautiful Tuscany

La pazza gioia (Like Crazy), 2016

Watching films from a foreign land can be akin to traveling. You discover that some things are universally true, that people all over the world share fundamental experiences, and dance to common themes. At the same time, you discover that every culture is particular and that to truly understand a place you must immerse yourself in realms that are strange and disorientating. Our beloved Tuscany encompasses a multifaceted culture whose complexity is manifest in the films set and shot there. Have a look at this special list.

Read on to learn about a few (almost) secret corners and my most favorite hang-outs.

This is part 4 of our Staff Picks blog series! Here we outline the tours our US staff members have been on, what they liked most, and tours they hope to go on. I joined Ciclismo in 2007 while I was living the adventure travelers dream. In 2010 I relocated to southern California because I could experience my love of hiking and biking year round.

Top 5 Harvest Tours

The grape harvest, or vendemmia, is an important and deeply-rooted Italian cultural tradition where local producers begin harvesting the fruit of their labor. It is an evocative time to travel to Italy; hillsides are cloaked in ready-to-pick grapes, and a fragrance of fermenting wine permeates the air as you cycle along quiet country roads.
