Tuscany’s charm is expressed in its craftsmanship, in the magnificence of its works of art, in a plate of bruschetta with extra-virgin olive oil, in literature and poetry.Allegra Antinori
Nestled between the Ligurian and Tyrrhenian seas, the rural region of Tuscany oozes a cultural and artistic legacy. With historic hill towns, sprawling vineyards and a seemingly never-ending amount of olive groves, it's quitessentially Italian at every turn.
Recognised as the innovator of the Italian Renaissance, every corner and crevice offers a tasteful appetizer for those enthused by cultivated art and design. In fact, its cutting-edge architecture has remained a source of inspiration for some of the biggest names in fashion - from Gucci to Pucci. A location flooded with museums and galleries, some of its most beautiful artworks can be found lurking in local churches and cathedrals.
Ramble around its quintessential villages, hike the hidden hills, or glug wine in style with a vineyard crawl.
Florence, and Tuscany in general, hold a special place in my heart.James Ferragamo
