As a perennially popular destination for travellers, Tuscany certainly needs no introduction. It is well known worldwide for its extraordinary natural beauty and historical heritage. With its lyrical landscapes, world-class art and a superb cuisine, the Tuscan experience is perfectly in symbiosis with the land.


However, it is also one of the most developed regions in Italy for technology and innovation in the health sector, a dynamic and lively hub where private and public knowledge and competence are successfully united and successfully compete in international markets.

Tuscany attractions


Florence, the cradle of the Renaissance, is one of world’s great art cities. Giotto’s frescoes, Michelangelo’s David, canvases by Botticelli, Leonardo da Vinci and a host of other greats in the Uffizi Gallery… there’s so much exquisite art and architecture, it’s difficult to know where to start.


Siena, though it may not have quite the over-abundance of artistic riches of its historic rival, this proud Medieval city-state is unique in the way its layout enacts a kind of symbolic theatre of the Tuscan civitas, with a series of tight and winding lanes converging on the shell-shaped open space of Piazza del Campo.


Lucca, the town’s sturdy defensive walls give the place a fierce military air on the outside, but inside, all is graceful piazzas, Pisan Romanesque churches and al fresco restaurants.


Arezzo & the Piero della Francesca trail, the single most essential artistic draw in the whole of Tuscany – Piero della Francesca’s Legend of the True Cross fresco cycle in the church of San Francesco.


Chianti & San Gimignano, the Chianti Classico area between Florence and Siena is a perennial summer favourite, as much for its amiable cypress, olive, oak-wood and vineyard-strewn landscape and its shamelessly picturesque castles and villages as for the fine red wine it produces; San Gimignano, the city of the belle torri (beautiful towers), rises imperiously above the vineyards of its own wine-growing area.


The Val d’Orcia & Montalcino, home to some of the region’s most perfect landscapes, the Val d’Orcia stretches languidly across an unspoiled and relatively under-visited swathe of southern Tuscany; one of Tuscany’s highest towns, Montalcino is at the centre of the prestigious Brunello wine region with the ravishing 12th-century Abbey of Sant’Antimo.


Once a maritime power to rival Genoa and Venice, Pisa is world famous for the Leaning Tower, which stands in the magnificent Piazza dei Miracoli.  Built from 1173 to 1372, the Leaning Tower, together with the Cathedral and the Baptistery, are the most beautiful example of the Pisan Romanesque architectural style. However those are a few of many noteworthy sights in this compelling city. Education has fuelled the local economy since the 1400s, and students from across Italy compete for places in its elite university founded in 1343. This endows the centre of town with a vibrant cafe and bar scene, balancing an enviable portfolio of well-maintained Romanesque buildings, Gothic churches and Renaissance piazzas with a lively street life dominated by tourists.
