The Tuscany region
Tuscany, the cradle of modern European culture, contains treasures of every age and style, from the Etruscan theatre and Roman baths at Fiesole, to the majestic Gothic buildings in the medieval town of Siena, to the exceptional art and architecture of Florence.
The cities of Tuscany have produced writers, scientists, architects, musicians and artists whose works have literally changed the world. The immense dome of Florence’s Duomo, designed by Brunelleschi, inspired Michelangelo’s design for the dome of St. Peter’s in Rome, and influenced architecture in towns throughout Italy.
Modern science and technology have their roots in the experiments of Galileo and other researchers. Puccini was born in Lucca. Dante, Petrarch and Boccaccio broke with traditional Latin and wrote in the Italian language, establishing the Tuscan dialect as Italy’s literary language and things Tuscan as the measure of culture and refinement.
San Gimignano is located on the hills north of Siena and shines in the heart of Val d'Elsa due to its beauty and charm. The town is a mix of splendid alleys and breathtaking views, where you seem to have gone right back to medieval times. The area surrounding San Gimignano includes charming, flowing hills from where you can admire the picturesque landscape and enjoy quiet walks.
The area is surrounded by more or less hidden gems. Near the Podere Monti holiday homes you can admire
- the beauty of Poggibonsi with Cassero, Fonte delle Fate and the Church of San Lucchese
- Colle Val d'Elsa and the charm of the old area
- Monteriggioni and its castle that is unique in Italy
- Certaldo and the ancient village with its funicular railway.
