Tuscany – Territory

Tuscany boasts lots of charming and different places: spacing from the seaside to the countryside.
The coast is famous for its golden sandy beaches like those in Versilia, in particular: Marina di Carrara, Forte dei Marmi, Pietrasanta, Camaiore and Viareggio (famous Carnival). Heading south, Castiglioncello, Cecina, Castagneto Carducci, Follonica, Castiglione della Pescaia and Marina di Grosseto.

There are many islands in the Tuscan Archipelago: Elba, the largest, Giglio, Giannutri, Capraia, Pianosa, Gorgona and Montecristo, where Alexandre Dumas set his novel “The Count of Monte Cristo”.

For a relaxing break: Saturnia, Montecatini and Monsummano Terme, famous for skin treatments, and Bagno Vignoni

For sports addicted, there are very picturesque routes for mountain biking, horseback riding or hiking in Chianti hill, Maremma and Garfagnana.

Others “must-see”: the Apuan Alps with the white marble quarries dear to Michelangelo, and of course Chianti Valley, also called “Chiantishire” for the large number of British citizens who have settled there.
Above all, Chianti is famous for its wine, perhaps the most famous in the world, even is it is less precious than the noble Brunello di Montalcino.
