The Tuscany region

Located in the heart of Italy, Tuscany is surely one of the most famous Italian landscapes. The essence of this beautiful region are its natural, artistic, and cultural heritage.

Bounded by the Ligurian and the Tyrrhenian Sea (two arms of Mediterranean), this region is divided into ten 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. Bus-lines and trains connect the larger towns, but having a car would be a great advantage, and you would be easily able to enjoy the small towns and vineyards, which represent some of Tuscany’s strong points.

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.

What about a drop in on “Mugello”? It is a countryside surrounded by oaks, chestnut trees and by the Apennines, This land of artists and painters have been source of inspiration in its farmhouses and colours. with kind people, authentic cooking, good wine, plus a great tradition in handicrafts.

Versilia is an area of 20 km sandy beaches located in the north of the region. The seaside with the colourful bathing areas is rich in bars and meeting places. Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi, Massarosa, Pietrasanta, Seravezza, Stazzema and Viareggio are the towns of this beautiful coast.

Gambassi Terme

The green Tuscan landscapes composed by Certaldo, Castelfiorentino, Montaione, Volterra and San Gimignano, hold the town of Gambassi Terme.

Very old settlement, urbanized from the Neolithic Age, even though the period of highest density of population's been registered during the Etruscan and Roman Age, as shown by numerous findings.

It surely used to be a "transfer point", for the Etruscans as it was on the line of march and within the dominion of Volterra; for the Romans, as regards Via Clodia between Siena and Lucca and, during the High Middle Ages, for travellers and pilgrims running the famous Via Francigena (the current Via Cassia).

The parish Church of St Maria a Chianni, dated back to the end of the XII century (currently visitable addressing to the rectory), notable example of Romanesque art, with evident influences of the Romanesque-Pisan style, was a very important stopping place.

Some recent archaeological investigations have taken a census of many sites where, between the Middle Ages and modern ages, locals made glasses. The so-called "bicchierai" (glass makers) of Gambassi were famous and requested all over Italy.

Nowadays you can visit places, furnaces and admire the products of this ancient craftsmanlike art. The findings have been gathered and kept as part of a permanent exhibition, into the pretty town hall.
