Tuscany, located in Italy’s central-western part on the Tyrrhenian Sea, gets its name from an Etruscan tribe that settled the area about three thousand years ago. It has belonged to the Romans, the Lombards, and the Franks. More than four hundred years ago, under the Medicis, Tuscany became a major European center.

It is undoubtedly one of Italy’s top tourist destinations as well as an ideal place for your villa when you hit it big, huge. Florence is the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance and the administrative center of Tuscany.

It is one of Italy’s top tourist destinations, whose interest sites are too numerous to list here. Siena and Pisa are two other major tourist destinations.
Tuscany is a center of industrial production, in particular metallurgy, chemicals, and textiles. Given the region’s importance as an international art center for centuries, don’t be surprised that it is an excellent place to appreciate and purchase fashion, jewelry, leather goods, marble, and other beauty items.
Florence is the home of the house of Gucci. Tuscany produces a wide variety of cereal, olives, vegetables, and fruit. But not only vegetarians eat well. It is home to cattle, horses, pigs, and poultry. One local specialty is wild boar. On the coast, seafood is abundant.
Tuscany devotes over one hundred fifty thousand acres to grapevines, and it ranks 4th among the 20 Italian regions. Its total annual wine production is about 58 million gallons, giving it 8th place. About 70% of the wine production is red or rose’, leaving 30% for white. The region produces 44 DOC wines. DOC stands for Denominazione di Origine Controllata, which you can translate as Denomination of Controlled Origin, presumably a high-quality wine and 7 DOCG white wine. The G in DOCG stands for Garantita, but there is, in fact, no guarantee that such wines are truly superior. The region produces 9 DOCG wines. Tuscany also produces Super Tuscan wines, wines that may not have a prestigious classification but are outstanding.
This guide covers a visit to Florence and a car tour in Tuscany passing through the cities of Fiesole, Arezzo, Cortona, Chiusi, the Chianti region, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, Pisa, Carrara, Massa, the Versilia, Lucca, Pistoia, Montepulciano, Pienza, Grosseto, Massa Marittima, and Monte Argentario.
There are extensive descriptions and photos of the attractions. The guide contains links to the websites of train and air travel companies. It also has a listing of many reviews for the best-recommended restaurants within walking distance from the location where you plan to have lunch or dinner.

Florence and Tuscany is an excellent guide to the city

I particularly liked the fact that it was a guide that was written by locals, who really know the best places to go and what to see.

Would recommend it

What makes this guide unique is that it takes you beyond the main attractions of Florence, showing you the city’s many other treasures.

I'm going to give you my honest opinion of this book

The first thing I want to say is that this is the perfect book for beginners or those who have never been to Italy before. This book is also written for those who have already been to Florence and have traveled to some of the other places in Tuscany.

It is a city of innumerable treasures, where the art and history are truly endless

If you fall in love with it as I did the first time I visited in the 80s, you'll be back again and again.
