The serene beauty of the Tuscan landscape is unequalled. Whoever knows Tuscany, values the sight of its olive groves, interspersed with cypresses, and the many vineyards, almost wherever one looks. Occasional hilltop villages or towns.

Tuscany’s cities are the birthplace of the Rinascimento style (Renaissance) and it is omnipresent in most cities and towns. The cultural value of the art collections of Florence is inestimable. This is where the Medici’s patronage of great artists took place, but also the invention of banking and bookkeeping. The majestic impression and visual impact of the details of both the cathedrals of Florence and Siena is mesmerizing.

The sunny climate and long coastline with delightful towns as well as the southern flora complement the character of this world-famous region. Other pillars of Tuscany’s success are the strict adherence to cultural protection and respect for the heritage. All this explains the favour Tuscany enjoys with not only large numbers of loyal visitors, but also many foreign enthusiasts who have decided to settle here, be they from Great Britain, the U.S.A., Continental Europe or elsewhere.

Montepulciano, Montalcino and other wine regions produce a fair number of Italy’s best red wines. But probably you do not need to read on any more, since either you have experienced all this or have heard of amazing Tuscany.
