Spring brings many photo opportunities in Tuscany. May colours the fields in bright red with thousands of wild poppies. They usually start blooming in April after the rainfalls. At some locations, they mix with pink sainfoin blooms and it's even more impressive. As for the location, the best place to marvel at massive poppy fields is Val d'Orcia, which stretches from Siena to Monte Amiata.
