What to visit in Tuscany: itineraries and destinations

The heart of the Tuscan Renaissance is Florence, the regional capital.

For centuries the most important Florentine families Dei Medici and the Catholic Church have disputed the role of principals of the construction of buildings and works of art in general.

Give works to writers, artists and intellectuals meant gain fame and prestige, and it is thanks to this system that the world has known masters like Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci.

Also, it is in Florence that painters such as Botticelli and Raffaello realized their most famous works now housed in the Accademia Gallery and the Uffizi Gallery, one of the oldest and most important Museums of the old continent.

During the Renaissance, architecture also experienced a rapid development and many of the Florentine buildings date back to that period.

With its wonderful squares, magnificent churches and elegant “palazzi”, Florence remembers a large open-air Museum.

This is just a detail of what you can encounter if you really want to visit Tuscany and its treasures.

Tour in Tuscany, it’s a copyright tourism!

The Tuscan capital is not the sole heir of the rich historical, artistic and cultural heritage of this region.

During the Renaissance the nearby Siena was the historic enemy of Florence and the noble families of Siena tried to compete with the Florentine ones, by commissioning works and works.

If we were to establish a ranking of the 10 most beautiful villages of Tuscany in the province of Siena, here they are: Montalcino, Monteriggioni, Lucignano, Cortona, Anghiari, Volterra, Pitigliano, San Gimignano, Pienza, Montepulciano.

All these villages are conveniently located at the top of the Tuscan hills.

The ancient fortifications of these pretty villages remained perfectly intact despite the passage of centuries.

Another milestone is Pisa, known worldwide for its leaning tower.

A couple of hours by car, here it is Volterra, famous Etruscan city for the extraction and processing of alabaster since the days of ancient Rome.

The shimmering sea on one side, the Apuan Alps on the other.

This is the coast of Tuscany, Versilia and Viareggio, visit Tuscany and not stop in these places is not feasible, you might regret it.

Founded as a port on the Sea of Lucca, Viareggio takes its name from the Via Regis, the road that connected it to the main town in the Middle Ages.

The walk along the seafront is the showcase of Viareggio, the pearl of Versilia, a great avenue of more than 3 kilometers from the Liberty architecture decorated by Galileo Chini who in the early 1900s decorates with its historical ceramics the 2 towers of the Gran Caffè Margherita where Giacomo Puccini loved to sit.

The Tuscan coast is a strip of sand of almost 300 km, washed by the waters of the Tyrrhenian Sea and dotted with ancient harbors of unmistakable and timeless charm.

The southern part of Tuscany is wilder with its rolling hills and lush, quiet and ideal relaxed atmosphere to enjoy the excellent wine and other products of the earth.

Indeed in Tuscany there are many “designer wineries” designed by great architects voted to contemporary art, innovative and sustainable.

Among the many regional routes through olive groves and vineyards stand out on all those of Chianti. In this area some of the finest varieties of Tuscan wine whose label is synonymous with quality and assurance in every corner of the world is produced.

To enjoy the fruit of the local vines there is nothing better than a romantic picnic with cold meats, cheeses and other products.

In the rest of the world the Renaissance is only a chapter in a history book, but here in Tuscany the traces of that era remain.

From the rolling green hills to the ancient traditions through art and the constant pursuit of happiness: the charm of this land is magical!
