The Tuscany region
Tuscany is home to many natural and cultural treasures which have secured its place in the heart of the discerning tourist.
Rolling hills, sweet rolling wooded hills and valleys, sunflower fields, rustic farmhouses. And cypress trees.
Thus the Tuscan landscape has conquered the world. And yet, the nature of Tuscany is more than this.
The surprise of snow-covered peaks, ponds and lagoons, Mediterranean underbrush that grows right out to the sea, woods and a countryside still marked by ancient farming practices.
Resolutely protected parks and reserves that are not oases in the desert but links in a network that covers all the environmental systems of the region: Apennines, rivers valleys, wetlands and coast.
The system of protected natural areas of Tuscanyincludes national parks, state and sea reserves, wetlands of international importance, regional parks, provincial parks, provincial reserves, protected natural areas of local interest.
Then there is varied Tuscan coastline with its long beaches stretching for miles.
A famous coastline, framed by the superb arch of the Apuan Alps, the legendary mountains of white marble is worthy of the cover of travel brochures.
And not far from the world famous Leaning Tower, long sweeps of sand open up, but that is not all.
There is the sea, sand, pine woods and the Natural Park of San Rossore.
The winning ingredient in this recipe is nature, but your holidays will be what triumphs.
Maybe your imagination will be sparked up by the bays on the Etruscan coast. Maybe it will be the untamed vegetation and the blue waters of the Tuscan islands with the cliffs plunging into the sea.
The colours of the sunset will take you out of this world, far away from the drab and monotonous
everyday life. You still have the chance.
Argentario, where the intense green of the unspoilt Maremma countryside fades into the crystal blue waters of the sea. Dive into the archaeological sites of Etruscan memories. Or do you prefer to find your berth in the exclusive fashionable ports?
Within easy drive are Tuscany's most historic and artistic cities. And even closer to Casa Pozzo is Arezzo at 12km, Francesco Petrarca and many other towns and villages waiting for you to discover. Cortona, Florence, Siena and Perugia are all simple day trip destinations.
