Tuscany - Toskana
Tuscany - Unlike almost any other Italian district, Tuscany combines art, culture and nature in a truly delightful way. Beaches, historical festivals, interesting places and islands also give Tuscany its unforgettable flair.
Tuscany - Italy's cultural region
Tuscany has over 3000 years of history to look back on. Romans, aristocracy and the middle-classes all left behind their mark. Those loyal to the emperor fought bitterly against those loyal to the Pope, the Medici made a name for themselves as supporters of art. more
Surrounded by mountains and the Mediterranean, Tuscany has surprisingly diverse nature. In addition to the formed culture landscapes, Tuscany is characterised by dense forests, moors and Mediterranean Macchia. more
Regions in Tuscany
