Located in central Italy, extended from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea, Tuscany is the unquestioned leader in world tourism. The landscapes, the artistic heritage and important cities, first of all Florence, make this region unique. In this region, nature has many different facets, starting from the coast that alternates long and sandy beaches, like the Versilia, with rocky cliffs and steep headlands. Incomparable are the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation, a crystal clear sea and rich seabeds.
Views of nature you can admire the Apuan Alps and in several protected areas, including the lagoon of Orbetello home to several species of migratory birds, including herons rose. But the most characteristic landscapes of the region are those that merge the beauty of nature with the presence of man. The beautiful Gulf of Baratti and the sites of Vetulonia and Pitigliano guard necropolis and vestiges of the Etruscan civilization, while Roselle and Cosa evoke memories of the Roman period.
And then, medieval villages, towns rich in history, castles and fortification systems, rural churches (the so-called "churches") and beautiful abbeys, like that of Sant'Antimo, are present throughout the territory and their profiles stand out in the landscapes the Crete Senesi, the Val d'Orcia, Garfagnana, Chianti and Maremma. Many are ultimately the sources of well-being: Montecatini, Saturnia, Montepulciano, Monsummano and Bagno Vignoni which, thanks to the hot springs and centers equipped for all types of treatment, offer relaxing holidays ..
