Tuscany. The region stretches over the slope of the Apennines, looking onto the Tyrrhenian Sea. The Tuscan landscape is mainly mountainous and hilly, with a flat area besides the sea (the Maremma). The coastline offers both long sandy stretches of beach and headlands. The small enchanting islands of the Tuscan archipelago are just off the coast. Cities: Florence, Siena, Pisa, Arezzo, Pistoia, Lucca, Livorno, Grosseto, Massa Carrara. Places worth visiting: In addition to art, Tuscany offers outstanding nature sceneries, such as the National Park of the Argentario and the Isola of Elba. In Siena there is the beautiful Piazza del Campo. In Florence there are the fifteenth-century shops on the Ponte Vecchio. Pisa has the Campo dei Miracoli, with the famous Leaning Tower. Lucca is surrounded by its medieaval wall still intact which encloses the charming town centre with its many churches, stylish shops and historic monuments. Tuscany is the most well known Italian region world wide, famous for its art, history and evocative landscapes. The whole region is an unrivalled centre of art dating across the centuries, with Etruscan ruins (in Fiesole, Chiusi, Volterra, Populonia), Roman monuments, Romanesque architecture and impressive Gothic cathedrals. Of paramount importance is the exceptional artistic heritage of the Renaissance, the 15th century reawakening of art and culture. Florence is the capital of Tuscany and one of the pearls of Italy, its wonderful masterpieces and great works of architecture enriching the everyday life of what is now also a vibrant modern city. One of the most important collections of paintings in the world can be found in the Uffizi Gallery and other magnificent paintings can be seen in the Gallery of Palazzo Pitti, hosting among others Tiziano’s and Raffaello’s masterpieces. The city is famous for its Duomo, the Baptistry and many other wonderful churches, for Piazza della Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio and Ponte Vecchio, where you can still find fifteenth-century shops. Other important cities in the region are Siena, Pisa, Arezzo, Pistoia, Lucca, Livorno, Grosseto, Massa Carrara. In addition to art, Tuscany offers outstanding natural settings, such as the National Park of the Argentario and the Isola d’Elba.
