Italy-based Caroline tours Tuscany (p50) Any surprises on this visit? It was great to visit in early spring when I could see the first leaves on the vines. There’s so much activity and promise in the air at that time of year. You’re an Aussie living in Italy. What are some misconceptions about the country? People often think of Italy as just one country and culture, but there are so many different ‘Italys’ to discover. Each part has its own secret recipes, cultures, traditions and, of course, wines!
