Tuscany is the most popular region of Italy, famous for its wonderful climate, landscape, and art treasures.
The famous "art" cities of Florence, Sienna and Lucca are huge attractions, whilst the culinary tradition is there to be savoured.
the Garfagnana is arguably the most scenic area of Tuscany, and is indisputably the best for walking. There are many Outdoor Activities on offer, and we give useful local info and recommendations.
