Tuscany along with Umbria and Marche are considered the green heart of Italy. The Region has a landscape in part
hilly but quite flat along the sea-coast. In Tuscany you can find examples of architecture from every age, from the Etruscan
civilization to Roman monuments and ruins right-up to the Renaissance . For Florence (www.firenzeturismo.it) like for Venice and Rome there are no words to describe it . The visit is a must Starting from
The Museum “Galleria degli Uffizi” to the various church and palace and the
fifteenth-century shops on the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge)
It depends how
much time you can spare; after Florence ( Unesco World Heritage Site)
that needs at least two full days , I highly recommend a visit to Siena
(Unesco World Heritage Site) with its wonderful Piazza del Campo ( www.sienaweb.it/territorio/pcampo.htm)
; San Gimignano (www.sangimignano.com) "The Mahnattan of Middle Ages"
famous for its numerous beautiful towers (Unesco World Heritage Site) ; Pisa
with its “Campo dei Miracoli” square (Unesco World Heritage Site)
with the famous Leaning Tower (www.pisaturismo.it)
and ……why not a Gastronomy and Wine tours in search of the genuine
flavours of the local cuisine and good wine like Chianti, Brunello, Vernaccia ,
The Noble of Montepulciano etc. etc.
