With its distinctive beauty, the curvy hills have colors that change according to the season. They are covered in the dense vegetation of vineyards, olive groves, cypresses, beech and chestnut trees. Alternate with Medieval habitations, rural villas and castles. An image that exemplifies the beauty of well-managed Renaissance agricultural landscapes.
