Best things to do and places to visit for Tuscany

Tuscany is located in central Italy, and preserves a touristic heritage recognized worldwide with parks, nature, authentic villages, and art cities.

You can start your journey from the capital, Florence, a cradle of culture. Every Tuscan province is a key to immersing yourself in a world of history, traditions, and environment. The territory is located between the Apennines and the Tyrrhenian Sea: this means you can wander among varied landscapes, from the sandy beaches of Versilia to the Mediterranean vegetation of the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, with clear waters and cliffs, a paradise for diving. Between the Apuan Alps and the Orbetello Lagoon, nature lovers find a setting suitable for hiking, bird watching, and horseback riding.

And then there's the history of the land: evidence of this region's ancient past are found along the Gulf of Baratti, Vetulonia, Pitigliano, Roselle, and Cosa, including the remains of Etruscan and Roman civilizations that settled in this area.

Tuscany is also a journey through time, which continues with its medieval villages and the uniqueness of traditional craftsmanship that reflects on the old lifestyle and traditions of each place. Chianti, Maremma, Val d'Orcia offer countless additions: castles, churches, shops, and wine and culinary traditions that bear their names.

And finally, the thermal baths: there are many spas in Tuscany, from the Lunigiana to the Crete Senesi, making the region a perfect destination for a relaxing holiday.

Among the most famous events in the region are the Palio of Siena, the Carnival of Viareggio, the Pistoia Blues Festival, Calcio Fiorentino (also known as "historic soccer") in Florence, and the Saracen Joust in Arezzo.
