Tuscany – a short introduction

Tuscany is probably the most popular region of Italy, but this wasn't always this way. Goethe escaped from Tuscany during his first Italy journey. He described Tuscany as a boring district and went to famous regions of Italy (to Sicily for example). Nowadays Tuscany is hugely popular, but not without reasons. People who are interested in art will find in the cities of Tuscany an amount of masterpieces beyond imagination, incomparable with other areas of the world. Florence is the biggest source on cultural pleasures, but Pisa, Lucca and Siena offer other possibilities too.

The museums of Tuscany not only show things from the renaissance but also have findings from the Etruscan time and pieces from the Roman Empire. But the legacy of the renaissance is most impressive. If you hear the names of artists that lived and worked in Tuscany than you have to be impressed: Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, Botticelli, Michelangelo and Machiavelli

But culture is just one side of Tuscany. Eating and drinking are equally important and Chianti, which is produced, in the Chianti valley is the most legendary wine from Tuscany. So most visitors are already happy jus tasting a nice glass of red wine, with a piece of bread, with native olive oil and a little piece of cheese.
