Extraordinary structures, dazzling water features and lush gardens—all details that go into creating an enchanting outdoor oasis. In our recent feature of a Tuscan-inspired landscape, landscape architects of Northland Design Jeremy Filmore and Jeremy Talbot discuss the nine-year-long project. “There was to be an emotion and feeling to the landscape,” Fillmore explains. 

Such a daring landscape is deserving of a little extra attention. So here, we take a closer look at each extraordinary destination that works to tell a grand story of reflection, exhilaration and even bewilderment. Ready to visit an Italian paradise?
