We will help you to discover Tuscany: a place rich of history, traditions and culture, divided in ten provinces (Firenze, Pisa, Siena, Arezzo, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Grosseto, Pistoia, Prato) which have many differences but that are linked by the pride to be “Toscani” (as we call ourselves).
During the Medioevo and Renaissance Tuscany was home of the most important Italian Renaissance artists as Cimabue, Giotto, Arnolfo, Andrea Pisano, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Masaccio, Ghiberti, Botticelli, Paolo Uccello, Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.
Tuscany is the place where one of the most important and recognized family and institution in Europe, the banking family of Medici, resided in; the place where Niccolò Machiavelli, considered one of the main founders of modern political science, learnt and wrote political treatises about the Art of Policy and Diplomacy.
But Tuscany is not just History and Art, it is also the most preferred contemporary Italian tourist destination chosen by people from all over the world, thanks to its amazing landscapes (countryside and seaside) and its renowned quality of life: culinary traditions based on very simple recipes, traditional town festivals, amazing and silent places (thermal baths, farmhouses, castles) surrounded by nature, and so on. Each year many couple chose Tuscany as a set for their wedding or honeymoon.
We will talk about all of these things, and we will be glad to accept all contributions coming from passionate people who want to share their Tuscan Experience and leave some advices to future tourists.
