FLORENCE is undeniably the capital of TUSCANY, yet it is only an introduction to the diversity and beauty that exists within the region it sits in.

“The creator made Italy from the designs by Michelangelo.” Mark Twain, Author

And indeed Michelangelo and many other artists contributed to make Tuscany the cradle of Renaissance. In Florence, art is everywhere. Walking through the streets and piazzas one takes in architecture of unimaginable beauty and statues that seem to come alive. 

“Among the four old bridges that span the river, the Ponte Vecchio, that bridge which is covered with the shops of jewelers and goldsmiths, is a most enchanting feature in the scene. The space of one house, in the center, being left open, the view beyond, is shown as in a frame; and that precious glimpse of sky, and water, and rich buildings, shining so quietly among the huddled roofs and gables on the bridge, is exquisite”. – Charles Dickens
Traveling is experiencing with all senses and Tuscany can satisfy them all.  The famous rolling hills of Tuscany are mostly covered in vineyards and olive groves.  From the famous area of Chianti all the way to Montalcino, there are plenty of opportunities to savor some of the best Italian wines with the perfect cheese, bread, prosciutto and fresh extra virgin olive oil to accompany the experience. Who can say no?
