The cities of the Tuscany region are as diverse as its people. Each offers its own unique culture, cuisine and style. Why such a diverse offering within one region you can drive across in just a few hours. Until the 1600’s Italy was divided and each city was basically its own country complete with its own government, rules, traditions, dialects and even their own money.
Once Italy was unified between 1815–1871 it created a singular country but within it had a very diverse and multi-directional culture separated by the boundaries of each region and city.
Today Tuscany offers the traveler a plethora of choices from grand Florence, historic Siena, sleepy Tuscany countryside towns or the coastal villages of the Mediterranean see. Here are just a few of our favorite unique experiences in Tuscany.
