Flight Paths: Italy – Tuscany

Vincent delves into the beauty of Tuscany, with the experienced Alessandro guiding him. After a trip to San Gimignano, also known as the Town of Fine Towers, they land in Florence to play a game of Calcio Storico, the wild ancestor of football where ferocious physicality is part of the rules. Then to Volterra, where Vincent explores the fabulous refinement of the Etruscans. This ancient civilisation is over 1 000 years older than Christ himself but mysteriously evaporated into the sands of time.
