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.Peters 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.
Florence is a really nice, old and monumental city. It has a mediterranean climate. The city of Florence began to flourish in the early 1500s, under the rule of Cosimo de Medici. Famous buildings designed during that period include the Pitti Palace and the Uffizi Gallery
