Tuscany is the undisputed leader in world tourism. Its scenery, artistic heritage and important towns, particularly Florence, made this region unique.
It’s a region where the hills outline the horizon, each rock, leaf and tree tells a 3,000 year old story of medieval villages, small towns rich in history, castles and fortifications, rural churches and attractive abbeys, like Sant’Antimo, scattered throughout the region and with their profiles standing out on the landscape of the Crete Senesi, the Val d’Orcia, the Garfagnana, the Chianti and the Maremma.
The splendid Gulf of Baratti and Vetulonia, Pitigliano and Sovana safeguard necropolises and remains of the Etruscan civilization, while Roselle and Cosa bring back memories of Roman times.
Nature is apparent in many different forms, from its coast that alternates long sandy beaches to Versilia’s rocky cliffsides and steep promontories. There are also the incomparable islands of the Tuscan archipelago, surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation and a crystalline sea with a bountiful riverbed.
But the region’s most typical scenery harmoniously fuses its natural beauty with the age-old presence of Man.
