A reasonable level of fitness and mobility is required.Tuscany has long been considered one of the most beautiful photography locations in Europe. It possesses gorgeous, golden harvested yellow rolling hills interspersed by the cobbled streets of medieval towns. The mist fills the surrounding valleys at sunrise and they provide the most wonderful view in which to start your day with and in the evenings, capturing the warm glow of the setting sun over the golden, autumnal landscape is an absolute must.September in Tuscany offers the landscape at its most vibrant and the weather is particularly pleasant and warm. It is also a quieter, more peaceful experience to that in April /May when most of the photography workshops and tours run. We still however get to experience and enjoy the mist in the valleys in the morning, as well as lone chapels, churches, Cyprus tree lined roads, medieval walled towns and the rolling hills and vineyards which will have just been harvested. Our choice of accommodation for the five nights is the idyllically located Hotel Casanova. Positioned in an olive and cypress park in the very heart of San Quirico d’Orcia, it offers unrivalled views of the valley from the terrace as well as a in-house restaurant, bar-cafe and a spa area that incorporates a large heated pool with 18 air-water jets, a hydro-massage whirlpool and a Finnish Sauna. The hotel is perfectly positioned to reduce the amount of time spent driving, leaving more time for your photography as well as allowing us a short walk into town to dine at some of the wonderful local restaurants too. **Image used with kind permission from Duncan StewardWe will be staying at the beautiful Hotel Casanova in the heart of San Quirico d’Orcia.
