Tuscany is a region in central Italy with unbelievable beauty.
Tuscany is indeed the essence of Italy in many ways.
This unique area is the cultural background, since it is the home of Renaissance, which fostered painting, sculpture and architecture.
Every eminent artistic figure from Giotto onwards – Masaccio, Brunelleschi, Alberti, Donatello, Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo – is represented here, in churches, galleries and many museums.
Tuscany’s one unmissable festival, the Palio, which sees bareback horse-riders careering around the cobbles amid the famous display of pageantry this side of Rome.
