Introducing Tuscany

Tuscany is as picture-perfect in person as it is on the postcards. Rolling hills, vineyards, and olive trees blanket the countryside, dotted with clusters of farmhouses and wineries. The quality of Tuscan food and wine – as fresh and local as it gets – cannot be understated, it’s true. But there is so much more to the area than its incredible cuisine.

The Renaissance cities of Florence, Siena, and Lucca are famous for their stunning piazzas, churches, public sculptures, and museums, and a trip to Tuscany would not be complete without a visit to at least one of the area’s cultural epicenters. The smaller medieval villages in Tuscany (San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Radda) are equally charming and well worth a visit, especially for travelers looking for a quieter escape.

You may be surprised to learn that Tuscany has a beautiful coastline as well. Southwestern Tuscany’s Maremma region is home to miles of unspoiled beaches and national parkland, and the Versilia coast near Pisa is known for its fashionable, chic resorts.

Expert Tips

“Many villas produce their own wine and olive oil on-site. Bring or ship a few bottles home; they make perfect personalized gifts, and it’s wonderful way to re-live your vacation once you’ve returned to daily life.”  Margherita, Managing Director, Italy Division

“The produce in Tuscany is all locally grown and seasonal, and as a result, completely delicious. Many villas even have their own vegetable and herb gardens. Keep an open mind with ingredients that you might not choose on your own at home, and allow your chef’s recommendations or availability at the market to dictate your meals.”  Saffo, Managing Director, Italy Division
