If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Tuscany or Umbria, my friend Sean Caufield's company To Tuscany Villas, which is based in Chianti,  has dozens of well managed properties to choose from and a very user friendly web site.  Equally if you own a property you wish to rent in Tuscany or Umbria, Sean's your man.

 

 

 

Many of Paradoxplace's 1,000 pages have links to interesting and relevant external websites.  Here are links to some worthwhile sites.

 

 

Delicious Italy is rich in foodie commentary, information and stories from all over Italy and is well worth a visit.

 

There are some other Italian foodie site links and truffle information here.

Julianna Lees has a great collection of photos of Romanesque capitals, mostly from France and Italy - she is also into green men.  The website has a good list of links also (but not, alas, to the Place).

The "thatsArte" team of Manuela and Tiziana are responsible for a seriously good site for the large number of people who are "passionate about Italian ceramics", including information about exhibitions.  They also have a sister site where you can indulge your passion by buying today's Italian ceramic wares.

 

 

Whilst Wikipedia is (to put it mildly) a photo desert and a bit of a jungle to participate in, it has improved the accuracy of its written information greatly and can be a good additional source to the "this is what it's like to be there" photo rich Paradoxplace pages.
