Throughout the Summer months, the attention turns to art, culture and music from classical to jazz and blues.
Not only can you experience internationally-established events such as The Tuscan Sun Festival in Cortona, or Incontri in Terra di Siena held at La Foce, but also, many of the hilltop towns across Southern Tuscany, including Montalcino and Pienza, stage their own cultural and music festivals throughout the summer.
Even small villages get in on the act with events such as Camingliano Blues, where you can enjoy a Tuscan community feast first, before live performances from regional and international artists.
