Tuscany - art and culture


The main cities of Art and Art History are Florence, Siena, Pisa and Lucca. Every year, millions of visitors are attracted to some of the most impressive and important museums in the world for painting and sculpture – museums such as the Uffizi, for example. People also come to see the incredible architecture of the churches and market squares of places such as the Piazza della Signoria in Florence and the Piazza del Campo a Siena. There are also lots of palaces and exhibitions to visit. Some of the exhibitions, such as those at the Palio of Siena and the Calcio Storico in Florence, pay special attention to local history and traditions. Wherever you go in Tuscany, virtually over ever hill there is a village with artistic attractions and genuine indigenous cuisine waiting to be discovered. Sample the delights of villages such San Gimignano, Volterra, Fiesole, Montalcino and many more - you’ll be amazed.Tuscany has always been a destination for travellers from all over Europe in search of the beauty and contemplations. To behold the gentle and undulating pattern of its vine-covered hills, to take in the play of tone and colour of a landscape covered by olive and cypress trees is a truly wondrous experience.
There are also the farmhouses - the Italian "Agriturismo". And don’t forget the beach holidays that have so much to offer every taste and inclination. In a fantastic natural setting one can enjoy many different sports such as horse riding, trekking, sailing, diving and many other water sports.
Tuscany is also a region rich in natural parks - on the land and at sea. Tuscany is the region steeped in the culture and artistry of wine making and olive pressing. All the villages host traditional festivals and feasts where one can taste such local delicacies as the "Bruschetta", dishes with wild boars, hare, the famous Florentinian steak and genuine sausages - real culinary delights! All this complimented with a glass of the local wine, such as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, or vino Nobile di Montepulciano... you’ll be amazed.
