The Magic of the Tuscany Region

February 23, 20223 min read.

When we talk about Tuscany, you might think about the beautiful capital of the region, Florence, and it is obvious why. This beautiful city, one of the most important in Italy, is the most populated and rich in history, culture, and monuments, being home to many masterpieces of Renaissance art and architecture. 

Florence might get most of the attention, but the entire Tuscany region is filled with important towns with magnificent sights, and even small villages with unique magic to explore. Cities such as Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Montepulciano, or Volterra are must-stops when heading to Tuscany. 

Starting in Florence, when walking through the city’s streets, you will have the feeling of being in the era of Da Vinci or Michelangelo. The city is referred to as the cradle of the Renaissance, and it is considered one of the most romantic and enchanting cities in the world.

Florence is filled with museums, historic buildings, and art. Once there, admire Michelangelo’s David by heading to the Galleria dell’Accademia, as well as works by Botticelli and Da Vinci that can be found in the Uffizi Gallery.

With seven UNESCO World Heritage sites, the entire region has a fascinating history that goes from the Bronze Age, through the Iron Age, Roman rule, the Renaissance, and until today. All these are reflected in their gastronomy, culture, and architecture. 

Talking about gastronomy, you will be impressed with the variety of delicious dishes in Tuscany. From authentic Italian pasta to local plates such as pappa al pomodoro or bistecca alla fiorentina, we recommend you skip the diet during your trip. Tuscany cuisine is full of flavors, using ingredients such as tomatoes, bread, pork, olive oil, and of course, pasta. 

Another point to highlight is the wine, as Tuscany is recognized as one of the best wine regions in the world, offering different types of wines according to the area, climate, grapes, and traditions. You will see how passionate the locals are about wine and maybe have the opportunity to take a tour of the vineyards.

If you are looking for some adventure, the region has great mountains perfect for a hike, 250 miles of coast for scuba diving, and amazing naturally formed hot springs (the most popular being Bagno Vignoni, San Filippo, Petriolo, and Saturnia). Rent a car and go for a road trip to discover small villages, vineyards, and farms, or head to the coast for Mediterranean landscapes.
