Tuscany is the birthplace of the Renaissance with artists such as Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci both being born and working locally. Puccini was born in Lucca and wrote most of his music in the area and there are many smaller towns full of art and history dating back to the Etruscan civilisation and earlier.

Tuscany is known for its varied landscape: mountains, seaside resorts, vineyards and olive groves. The Etruscan Archipelago along with the area known as Cinque Terre are within easy reach. Villa Reale, the home of Elisa, Napoleon's sister and Villa Mansi are a few miles away and well worth a visit.
