The Italian region of Tuscany continues to flourish from its era of astonishing accomplishment and creativity during the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries. Tuscany is the premiere tourist destination in Italy.
During this period of humanism, the Renaissance was born, and individuals such as Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio became the creators of magnificent art. Within the region, Florence maintains the position of capital and is home to priceless pieces by Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and Brunelleschi. As a tourist, you should make it a goal to see these masterpieces of Italian heritage.
Other areas of Tuscany, such as Siena, Pisa, Montepulciano, San Gimignano, and Pienza are also filled with renaissance art, expansive piazzas, and countless ancient churches and medieval towers for tourists to visit and explore. Each of the cities boast specialties, often different wines (Chianti and Brunello being the specialties of the region), cheeses, or Lucca’s perfect city walls, Cortona as one of the oldest towns in Tuscany, San Gimignano with its famous towers, and Pisa with its leaning tower.
Another highly toured area is the island of Elba, located ten miles off the Tuscan shores. The hillsides of this untamed island are rich in foliage and provide for a peaceful, relaxing vacation spot. Above all, Tuscany’s rolling hills, cypress trees, and warm weather create a stunning and memorable landscape for Italian tourists.
