Overview

Tuscany is located in the central western part of Italy on the Tyrrhenian Sea. It gets its name from an Etruscan tribe that settled the area about three thousand years ago. It has belonged to the Romans, the Lombards, and the Franks.



More than four hundred years ago under the Medicis, Tuscany became a major European center. It is undoubtedly one of ItalyÕs top tourist destinations as well as an ideal place for your villa when you hit it big, really big.



Florence is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and the administrative center of Tuscany. It is one of ItalyÕs top tourist destinations, whose sites of interest are too numerous to list here. Siena and Pisa are two other major tourist destinations.



This guide covers a visit to Florence and to Tuscany: the cities covered include Fiesole, Arezzo, Cortona, Chiusi, the Chianti region, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Pisa, Carrara, Massa, the Versilia, Lucca, Pistoia, Montepulciano, Pienza, Grosseto, Massa Marittima, and Monte Argentario.
