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.
The region was populated first by the Etruscans on the 7th century BC, and about 500 years later by the Romans.
The words Humanism and Renaissance evoke Tuscany, as immediately as Pope evokes Rome: just think that between the fourteenth and the sixteenth century, both these ages were born here. The entire region attained a very important artistic role.
If you are keen on art and nature… well you’re definitely in the right place! ;-)
Indeed the fathers of Italian painting, architecture and sculpture lived in this beautiful towns: such as Cimabue, Giotto, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Botticelli, Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo. This is the reason why the entire region is rich in museums where thousands of amazing works are kept. You’ll be impressed by the majesty of the many ancient palaces (for examples “Palazzo Vecchio”, “Palazzo Pitti”, “Palazzo Medici”), monasteries and villas that are springing up all over the Tuscany.
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.
The Apuan Alps are a monumental work of the nature. They consist in some of the highest peaks in the region: This regional park sets up the chance for those who want to practice trekking, cycling, horse riding or simply walking to enjoy this beautiful landscape.
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.
Another great attraction of this region is the archipelago. The largest island is Elba: more than one hundred kilometers of coast.
Curiously enough, since the Etruscans introduced the use of fresh herbs, the Tuscan cooking is still based on vegetable dishes, bread-based soups, meats perfumed with sage, rosemary, and thyme. Moreover the secret of its success is the good care and the devotion to guarantee the quality of the products of the land... crostini of chicken liver, soups, tortelli with Bolognese sauce, “pappardelle” with hare sauce or with boar sauce, boar hunter style, fillet of beef, salted cod with tomato sauce, ricciarelli, cantucci, Tuscan salt-less bread… We’re sure your mouth is already watering!
A holiday in Tuscany is an experience that will bring you back happy memories for the rest of your life.
Your vacation at Villa Fiammetta will relax your mind and your body, maybe after a day spent sightseeing and admiring the artistic and historic treasures that nearby Florence and the other art cities of Tuscany preserve.
The villa is approximately 23 km (14 miles) from Florence, which can be reached in approximately 30 minutes by car. The town of Pontassieve is at approximately 10 km (6 miles), and from Pontassieve you will be able to reach Florence both by train and by bus. In Pontassieve, as well as in the other nearby village of Rignano sull’Arno you will find several services: supermarkets, restaurants, pubs, shops, horse centre, tennis courts and a swimming pool.
The enchanting commune of Rignano sull'Arno (whose name derives from the Latin "Arinianum") was a probable Roman settlement, as mentioned in ancient documents dating to the XI century. Its origins depend anyway on the strategic position as hugely important crossing point of the River Arno.
It used to be the only connection among Arezzo, Fiesole and Florence, thanks to the famous Etruscan way, popularly known as "dei setti ponti".
You'll love the incredibly beautiful ancient parish churches, like the lovely Pieve of St Leolino, that used to divide the Pieve of St Lorenzo in Miransù (whose original works of art have been moved to the Chruch of Villa Castellonchio) from the territorial ecclesiatic jurisdiction. Both buildings present the typical Romanesque architectural structure: basilican plant, with three naves divided by large arches supported by quadrangular pillars that finish, in the church of St Leolino, with three semicircular apsis.
The paraments are made of regular pietra forte and alberese stone ashlars arranged in rows. Extremely simple, the Church of St Leolino, preserves the marvellous XIV century fresco representing the Coronation of the Virgin and another one, called "Madonna feeding the Infant Jesus" and attributed to Bicci di Lorenzo. You'll also pleasantly notice the hexagonal font made of glazed earthenware by Benedetto and Santi Buglioni (1510-1520).
Not to be missed...
The Church of St Cristoforo in Perticaia: dating back to the XI century, richly decorated during the XV century (as shown by some frescoes' traces). Anyway its current elegant look, both structural and decorative, is due to the restoration and modernization ks of the XVIII century.
Monastery of St Maria a Rosano: built in the XI century, the church's been restored between the XVI and XVIII centuries, keeping the main features of the XII century.
Church of St Pietro in Perticaia, with the precious ligneous Crucified made by the Florentine school between the XV and the XVIcenturies.
If you are keen on long walks rather than horse-riding, you won't be disappointed by the local offers about enchanting routes to discover the scents pf the beautiful Umbria.
In summer Rignano sull'Arno charms its guests with "Suoni e Colori": an annual music rendez-vous, that will delight with refinement and originality the hears of the most heterogeneous public of music lovers.
