If you're looking for a resource on Tuscany you've found it at http://www.turismo.intoscana.it/en/. In one of the world's most enchanted lands you'll need a great guide to help you find the hidden gems and wonderful opportunities to discover Tuscany and yourself.
So much has been writing and filmed about Tuscany many of us feel that we know it and know it well. The world's finest artists hail from this land where God not only blessed the landscapes He blessed the food and Tuscans alike. How else can you explain Michelangelo, Da Vinci, the Medici, Dante, Florence, Cortona, Val d'Orcia, and fields of glowing sunflowers.
It is difficult for any of us to comprehend the beauty of this land. It's impossible to understand how Tuscany nurtured its sons and daughters who have put chisel to marble, shovel to earth, domes on churches, pen to paper, brush to canvas, food to pan with the outcomes they have and continue to achieve.
Serena, Costanza, and Lyala, and their team have dedicated themselves to creating the best window into Tuscany you can imagine and it's all here for you to enjoy one click at a time before, during, and after your visit.
So much of Tuscany goes unvisited and Visit Tuscany works hard to insure you don't miss a stone.
