Cinque Terre & Tuscany Photo Tour – Italy
Tuscany’s Rolling Hills
One of Italy’s most romanticised regions, Tuscany boasts miles of rolling hills, varied coastlines and postcard-perfect towns. The stunning landscapes of her hills lined with cypress trees, and vineyards that alternate with olive groves create a patchwork of incomparable natural beauty that will leave you in awe.
Cinque Terre is a rugged portion of coastline on the Italian Riviera. There are 5 towns in the area, each home to its own network of colorful houses and vineyards clinging to the steep terraces, and fishing boats bobbing in the harbors.
UNUSUAL EXPEDITION’s trips are well known for accomplishing a lot in just a few days. We basically pack a lot of content with different themes in a single trip. This workshop will be no different. Locations shoots each day are dependant on daily weather and lighting conditions.
