Tuscany is considered by many to be the most beautiful region of Italy. It is famous for its historic centers such as Florence, Siena or Pisa, its unique climate and picturesque landscapes. It consists of charming towns and vineyards situated in the hills and avenues with cypresses.
For centuries, Tuscan landscapes have fascinated and inspired painters and poets. Today, photographers also come here who delight in the wonderful light he paints in the morning and sunset, hill ranges covered with vineyards and arable fields.
The most famous views of the region are stone houses scattered over the hills, covered with tiles, to which winding roads planted with cypresses lead. Among the fields and vineyards, there are little towns with stone buildings.
Tuscan cities are in contrast to the rural and idyllic landscape. The most important of these is Florence, in which you can admire the cathedral of Santa Maria dei Fiori covered with a multi-field dome, the Romanesque octagonal Baptistery, whose interior is covered with frescoes, Giotto's Belfry, Ponte Vecchio or the Uffizi Gallery. However, Pisa is known for its Leaning Tower and Siena, with its well-preserved medieval and Renaissance buildings.
The Tuscan coast attracts vacationers from April to October. There are wide, sandy beaches, many of which are well developed. However, there are still places where you can relax without the crowds and resort surroundings. The region's most important holiday resorts include Forte dei Marmi, Marina di Massa, Calafuria and Piombino.
