The Tuscany region
Tuscany is surely one of the most famous Italian landscapes and located in the heart of Italy. The essence of this beautiful region are its natural, artistic, and cultural heritage.
It is bounded by the Ligurian and the Tyrrhenian Sea (two arms of Mediterranean), and the region is divided into ten gorgeous provinces, whose capitals are Arezzo, Florence, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena. Florence is the capital city of the region itself.
Spring and fall are the best times to visit Tuscany, because the climate is mild.
The “Chiantigiana road” is a must to see: it produces some of Italy’s finest wines. This is the colourful and legendary road of the “Chianti" region.
The grape cultivation dates back to the Etruscan times. One of the biggest pleasures will be sipping different wines, at the wineries or at the wine bars scattered in the towns.
Colle di Val d'Elsa
The town (medieval) of Colle di Val d'Elsa is set like a jewel on top of a high and evocative hillock, whose narrow valleys divide into three parts the fabric of the town.
The name Colle di Val d'Elsa indeed means hill above the valley of the Elsa river.
These three parts were anciently called Piano, Borgo and Castello, but in recent times simply Colle bassa and Colle alta (respectively low and high Colle).
Colle di Val d'Elsa - not far from the fascinating Monteriggioni, Casole d'Elsa, San Gimignano, Poggibonsi - is commonly known for the flourishing glass industry, born at the end of the sixteenth century and progenitress of crystal.
The village has been chosen indeed to house the Museum of Crystal, with unimaginable compositions to witness the history of this charming art.
You cannot go away without having a look at the Dome and paying tribute to the Tower House at the end of Via del Castello where,according to the legend, was born Arnolfo di Cambio (renowned Italian architect and sculptor) in 1240.
