Follow the Chianti wine route trough Tuscany

In this article we follow the Chianti Wine Route or Chiantigiana (SR 222) throughout one of Italy's most beautiful and charming regions. The road swings through the Tuscan hills of the Chianti Classico wine region along thousands of hectares of vineyards, all of which produce the Chianti Classico DOCG (the highest classification for Chianti). We leave in Florence and drive along the many picturesque villages to Siena.

Gruesome medieval torture and execution methods

When it comes to inflicting pain to other people, the human mind is surprisingly inventive. Throughout history several execution methods were invented with only one purpose: to let a victim suffer as much pain as possible before he died. This article will give an overview how different regions and cultures handled dead penalties in the middle ages (not for people with a weak stomach). These any many other torture devices and techniques can be seen at the Medieval torture museum in Amsterdam.
