Visitors have fallen in love with Tuscany throughout history. The Romans prized the fertile earth, pilgrims walked across it, great artists and poets enshrined its beauty in their work and, more recently, the international jet set has discovered its gentle, rolling hills and stunning coastline.
In Tuscany, locals and visitors alike spend a considerable amount of time thinking about food (and wine!). A supremely fertile region, Tuscany has always been famous for its produce and boasts some of the country’s most iconic exports. The Chianti wine region is now an international powerhouse, while excellent olive oil is milled throughout Tuscany. Truffles are a Tuscan mountain delicacy and bistecca alla Fiorentina (chargrilled steak) is a must-try.
