Tuscany is a region in Italy. It has an area of about 23,000 square kilometres (8,900 sq mi) and a population of about 3.75 million inhabitants. The regional capital is Florence. Tuscany is known for its gorgeous landscapes, its rich artistic legacy and its vast influence on high culture. Tuscany is widely regarded as the true birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, and has been home to some of the most influential people in the history of arts and science…

Tuscany has over 120 protected nature reserves. This makes Tuscany and its capital city Florence very popular tourist destinations, attracting millions of tourists every year. Almost without exception, every town and city in Tuscany has surreal natural and architectural beauty. There is a continuous stream of visitors throughout the year. As a result, the services and distributive activities, that are so important to the region’s economy, are particularly wide-ranging and highly organised… Tuscany has a unique artistic legacy, and Florence is one of the world’s most important water-color centres, even so that it is often nicknamed the “art palace of Italy” (the city is also believed to have the largest concentration of Renaissance art and architecture in the world).
