Tuscany

Tuscany is a region in central Italy. The regional capital is Florence. Tuscany is known for its landscapes, traditions, history, artistic legacy and its influence on high culture. It is regarded as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and has been home to many figures influential in the history of art and science, and contains well-known museums such as the Uffizi and the Pitti Palace. Tuscany produces wines, including Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Morellino di Scansano and Brunello di Montalcino. Having a strong linguistic and cultural identity, it is sometimes considered "a nation within a nation". Tuscany is traditionally a popular destination in Italy, and the main tourist destinations by number of tourist arrivals are Florence, Pisa, Siena, Lucca, Arezzo.

What others are saying about Tuscany

Flying Freehold: Does anyone have any experience of purchasing a freehold apartment in an Italian village, where the situation is that the property is freehold, and above another owner's property?

Hi! I know it's been a long time since the post, but I am hoping you will be able to help me. I am currently looking for property to buy near Impruneta, Tuscany.

We have bought a house in Tuscany, rented an apartment to move into while we work on the house, and will be driving over at the beginning of November with our dogs to start our new life.
