Tuscany is one of Italy’s world famous regions. Tuscany, with its enchanted landscapes from the mountain to the sea. Tuscany, with its towns with museums, cathedrals, historical buildings, streets, towns like FlorenceSienaPisa and more. Tuscany, full of ancient Etruscanand Roman ruins…

But one can not pass through this land without being aware of Medieval Tuscany. Still visible are the small walled towns which are a testimony to the Middle Ages just as much as its great cities.
