Tuscany is a charmed land. Unrivaled as the cradle of art, Toscana, where the Renaissance first began, is a region of ancient splendor and modern charm. From the largest cities to the smallest hamlets and most remote villages, you will find ancient chapels, hilltop castles, a hidden palace – perhaps an ancient city nestled in the mountains.
Florence & Tuscany: the cradle of art
Each place has a treasure to show you – a fresco in a church, a piazza that has retained its original character, celebrated museums filled with masterpieces, monumental cathedrals and palaces, massive walls and fortresses –each a testament to Toscana’s artistic majesty, exquisite architecture and natural beauty. It is here that visitors from around the world have come since the golden age of Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Medicis. And it is here where the purest form of the Italian language, derived from the Tuscan dialect of native sons Dante, Petrarch, and Boccaccio, was born – a tribute to the importance of their literary works.
Dine in the Uffizi Museum or have a hot air balloon ride over the Tuscan countryside, this is just a hint of what your event in Tuscany could be!
Smaller towns like Lucca, Volterra, and Montepulciano contain some of Italy’s most famous landmarks, museums and artistic treasures you can discover with daily trips from Florence.
The city of Florence is a world to discover on its own! Streets of remarkable shopping, delightful restaurants and priceless art are only the beginning. The hub of the Renaissance and one of the world’s most architecturally beautiful cities, Firenze is home to countless museums and galleries filled with centuries-old well preserved masterpieces – the Galleria degli Uffizi, which holds one of the most important collection of paintings in the world, the Gallery of Palazzo Pitti, with Tiziano and Raffaello’s masterpieces & the Academy with Michelangelo’s David.
