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.

Siena

The incomparable scenic beauty of the Chianti lands, patchwork of vines and olive trees, the huge variety of landscapes characterize the incredible territory of Siena. Towards the south, Orcia and Chiana valley complete this amazing area. The city of Siena is the heart of this extraordinary geographical and environmental repertory, where every town, village or hamlet contains art treasures and historical evidence of priceless value.

According to the legend, Siena was founded by Senio and Ascanio, sons of Remus, famous twin brother of Romulus, with whom he founded Rome. In fact, statues of the wolf feeding the twins can be spotted everywhere in the city... but they have been made without any historical foundation ;-)

Siena is indeed the most uniquely intact city of Tuscany, the town where each stone has remained in the same place throughout the ages. Located in the very centre of Tuscany, is the perfect starting point to easily reach many Tuscan cities, villages and tourist attractions: Florence, Lucca, Arezzo, Cortona, San Gimignano, Pienza, Montalcino, Monteriggioni, Volterra, Massa Marittima, Montepulciano, San Galgano Abbey and many more.

The well-preserved medieval streets and piazzas are the lovely setting of the annual popular Palio festival, a risky horse race that takes place in Siena's main square: the "Campo". The city is divided into "terzi", or thirds, and within each of these there are a number of the districts known as "contradas". The contradas are 17, and each one has its own appellation, chapel and flag: all of them are represented during the festival and take part to the competition to win the Palio.

You will plausibly cover the city's centre within the walls on foot...Siena has plenty of monuments and museums that would delight anybody. The Terzo di Camollia, for example, contains the gigantic and shadowy Basilica of St Francesco, dating from the late 13th century; the rival Dominican church, the Basilica of St Domenico; the Sanctuary of St Catherine of Siena; the former Medici Fortress, which is now a pleasant and panoramic public park.

Piazza del Campo, also simply known as "il Campo", is a must: the centenary heart of Siena, a sloping amphitheatre, lined with café tables and restaurants and thronged with tourists, school parties and locals. In the middle of the piazza, you will find Palazzo Pubblico (1250) which is the City Hall, where you'll admire some fine frescoes.

At the ticket office in the internal courtyard you can buy a range of tickets. These give access to almost all Siena's attractions, and some of them are valid for several days: a good way to save money, if you're planning a longer stay!

A combined ticket for a few Euro gives you access to the Museo Civico inside the Palazzo, and also to the imposing bell-tower, the Torre del Mangia. The tower is an excellent way to view Siena, the panoramas over the town and countryside are breathtaking and unforgettable... it's something that just people in good health conditions can do! Climb up to the highest bell is quite hard, indeed.

Moving on to the museum, highlights include superb frescoes by Simone Martini, whose Maestà religious scene is one of the oldest examples of Senese painting and glows with colour and life. Even more fascinating is a fresco by Ambrogio Lorenzetti (1319-1348), the Allegories of Good and Bad Government. Also worth seeing are an exquisite rose-tree made of gold (a gift to Siena from a Pope), and some beautiful carved choir stalls with religious illustrations (one fine example shows the dead clambering from their graves on Judgement Day).

One of Siena's remarkable landmarks is the Duomo,with its black-and-white striped marble façade and a Romanesque lower section, and the inlaid marble floor features works depicting biblical stories. A few ruined walls and arches remain to show the magnificence of the cathedral's uncompleted design due to the plague and wars, which would have created one of the largest churches in the world. The Duomo is free to visit; although there is a small charge to visit the Piccolomini Library, (off to the left of the nave), where charming courtly scenes by Pinturicchio recount the life story of Sienese Pope Enea Silvio Piccolomini (Pius II).
