The Tuscany region

Tuscany is located in central Italy and stretches from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea.

Its landscape, artistic heritage and stand-out cities - first among them Florence - make Tuscany an unquestioned protagonist of international tourism. In this region, nature has many different facets, starting from the coast that alternates long and sandy beaches, like the Versilia beach, with rocky cliffs and steep headlands. The islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation, a crystal-clear sea and rich seabeds, are peerless.

You can admire sceneries of uncontaminated nature in the Apuan Alps and in several protected areas, such as the Orbetello Lagoon, home to many species of migrant birds, including pink egrets.

However, the most typical sceneries of the region are those that merge the beauty of nature with the millenary work of man. The amazing Gulf of Baratti and the sites of Vetulonia, Vulci and Pitigliano guard necropoli and vestiges of the Etruscan civilization, while Roselle and Cosa evoke memories from the Roman Age.

Medieval villages, historical towns, castles and defense systems, country churches (the so-called pievi) and beautiful abbeys, like the one of Sant'Antimo, are scattered all over the territory and their profiles stand out in the landscapes of the Crete Senesi, Orcia Valley, Garfagnana, Chianti and the Maremma.

Finally, Tuscany is full of spas: Montecatini, Saturnia, Montepulciano, Monsummano and Bagno Vignoni, which offer relaxing holidays thanks to their thermal waters and well-equipped facilities for all types of treatments.

Piana di Lucca

The first stop on any tour of Lucca Province must be Lucca itself, a city of ancient origins, surrounded by its boundary wall that dates back to the 16th-17th Centuries.

This great work of military engineering, with its ramparts and bastions, is today a unique and scenic public area. Particularly evocative is the old town, which has kept intact its Medieval appearance composed of typical narrow streets and piazzas overlooked by stone towers, tower-houses and brick houses with arcades. Among the most typical streets, Via Fillungo stands out, the main axis here, surrounded by noble buildings and ancient towers the likes of the famous Torre delle Ore. Via Guinigi, where the complex of Medieval buildings built by well-to-do families is concentrated, is equally worth noting.

Religious architecture of particular importance includes the Duomo di San Martino with its magnificent facade and interiors rich in precious artworks; the Duomo Museum that houses paintings, sculptures and liturgical furnishings; the Church of San Michele in Foro, a unique example of Pisan-Lucchese architecture; and the splendid Basilica of San Frediano.

Outstanding examples of civil architecture are: Villa di Paolo Guinigi (15th Century), site of the National Museum showcasing Etruscan and Roman archaeological finds and several painting collections; Palazzo Mansi with its priceless furnishings and site of Lucca's second National Museum; and the 17th-Century Palazzo Moriconi-Pfanner, a magnificent example of Lucchese Baroque, surrounded by a spectacular garden. Neither should the birth house of musician Giacomo Puccini be passed up. It has been converted into a museum showcasing the maestro's documents and mementos.

The countryside in Lucca's environs offers the opportunity to visit magnificent villas, built between the late 16th and mid-19th Centuries to serve as the country residences and holiday homes for the nobility, all set inside picturesque parks. Among them two stand out the most: Villa Torrigiani with its characteristic gardens, and Villa Mansi, a splendid 16th-Century construction with frescoed rooms and a grand garden designed by architect Filippo Juvarra.

Among the historic sites, Altopascio was of great importance in Medieval times thanks to its position along the Via Francigena. The village preserves Romanesque-style buildings, churches and the famous 13th-Century bell tower, which once guided travelers with its tolls.

From the slopes of the Apuan Alps to the Migliarino-San Rossore-Massaciuccoli National Park, the splendid Versilian coastline is a highly-attractive tourist destination, thanks to its enchanting scenery, rich plant life and fascinating places. See the romantic Torre del Lago Puccini, where it is possible to see the villa-museum of Giacomo Puccini; it is here that he found inspiration for his masterpiece Madame Butterfly.

Other touristic hotspots within Versilia are Viareggio, famous for its carnival but also for its beaches and nightlife; the elegant Forte dei Marmi; Pietrasanta and its rich artistic heritage; and Camaiore, with its Romanesque architecture.

Do not miss the Valle del Serchio or Garfagnana with their characteristic villages - among them Borgo a Mozzano, famous for its spectacular Devil's Bridge; and Barga, an enchanting Medieval village with its prized architecture.

Other towns typical of Garfagnana are Castelvecchio Pascoli, featuring the house-museum of Italian poet Giovanni Pascoli, and the chapel that guards his remains; and Castelnuovo di Garfagnana, whose Duomo and Fortress are nestled in a spectacular and inspiring landscape.
