Tuscany is a top destination in Italy here are the best websites for travel and tourism information including Tuscany hotels, Tuscany tourist attractions, and what to see in tuscany Tuscany is well known for many things. Florence, being the largest city, is the main attraction, but by no means the only draw in a region that, above most in Italy, has a reputation beyond its means.
Of course, there is Florence, but there is time enough devoted to her, and the beauty and uniqueness of that city. Pisa as well, has her fans and detractors, but is a worthy enough diversion, and the Tower really is a must-see (as well as the Cathedral which can hold a torch to any in Florence).
To get a true taste of Tuscany in her entirity it is necessary to head for the hills, so to speak.
The overwhelming sight that will greet you as you head south from Florence, is (depending on the time of year) the verdant countryside. The green-ness is overwhelming, and the lines and lines of vineyards and olive trees around Chianti lead to the famous landscapes often alluded to, in Tuscany.
The hills are larger than their English equivalents, for the most part, and intermittently, a hill town will appear, as if from nowhere, and 'just popping in for a visit' can lead to finding the a great little trattoria which will far outstrip anything in Florence. Although that can possibly be said for any Italian countryside.
