The Hill Towns of Italy

The Hill Towns of Italy

Photographs by Richard Kauffman,Text by Carol Field

Now available from Chronicle Books, this classic volume is a glorious tribute to one of the most beautiful regions in the world. Thousands of Americans visit Tuscany and Umbria each year, and the timeless charms of the hill towns of northern Italy are impossible to forget. Anyone who has wandered the cobblestone streets of Siena or Orvieto or basked in a sunny piazza of Assisi or Montepulciano can attest to the enchanting power and romance of these ancient villages. The Hill Towns of Italy, capturing in luminous photographs the very special feeling of this region, serves as an evocative memoir for those who have had the good fortune to visit the hill towns and an irresistible lure for those who have not yet made the pilgrimage.
