DE Tuscany castle offers tourists place to shelter in a bubble from coronavirus
An 11th century castle in Tuscany has opened its doors as a location for tourists to come and shelter away from the pandemic after a difficult year for the region.
The Torre Palazonne, in Sovicille near Siena, tempting high walls and watchtower for sheltering away - and it's British owners are now calling for legislation for tourists to travel safely in Europe in a social bubble.
Tuscany is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy but, as with other locations reliant on holiday makers throughout the world, it has been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic.
However, as Torre Palazzone owner Kitty Walsh has discovered, hiring out a private castle offers a surprisingly easy way for visitors to holiday safely in their own group, away from other tourists.
