Description

Tuscany is one of the most important Italian regions and for historical, artistic, economic and cultural landscape. The most popular italian tourist region is known for the quality of life, culinary delights, and richness of its cultural heritage.

Florence, the city that inspired the genius of Dante and Leonardo Da Vinci. The city of the Uffizi and the David di Donatello. The cradle of the Renaissance and the italian language. In Florence you can breathe history, sacred and secular art. There is no other place in the world of so many illustrious “sons” can boast of the number and size. Literature, painting, sculpture and architecture make Florence a synonym of culture. Florence is also known as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with its many monuments and museums such as the Cathedral, Santa Croce, the Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria and Palazzo Pitti.

Siena, city of art, city of culture, city of the Palio and city of excellent cuisine – no doubt that this gorgeous town is a multi-faced one.
