Welcome to the Podere Patrignone blog, a medly of articles to give you ideas of things to do in Tuscany. Honestly, it’s more of a pin-board, than a blog, a place where we stick ideas and suggestions that might help you choose what to do when you visit Tuscany. Things like route options, places to visit, where to eat, places to buy wine. It’s all here. We’ve even added some foodie articles, so you replicate some of your favourite Tuscan dishes when you get home. Have fun.
