Tuscany
 
Tuscany

Tuscany, Toscana in Italian, is the best known Italian province and the name alone evokes an image of sun, dolce vita and picturesque little towns.
This image is quite correct, actually. Tuscany deserves its reputation and is worth a visit both for those who just want a holiday to relax, read a book and sit in the sun as well as those going for the high brow culture. Furthermore the Tuscan region has delicious food and great wines, a combination that makes life very enjoyable under the Tuscan sun.

The Tuscan cities such as Florence, Pisa, Lucca, or Siena house many sights and all have an old historic town where you can wander around for hours.

Siena has a very interesting historic town, but is most famous for the Palio, a medieval horse race where different parts of town all have a horse race through the historic centre of town.

Of course there is more to Tuscany than well-known tourist areas, Lunigiana is the northern-most and almost unknown area of Tuscany, squeezed between the costal region of Liguria and the Apuan Alps. This is an area of high, rolling chestnut covered hills and mediaval villages such as Fivizzano and Fosdinovo where the travel writer Eric Newby once lived.

The Isle of Elba also has outstanding facilities for anyone on a summer holiday: hiking, going to the beach and visiting historical towns can all be done on the same day.
