the Tuscan coast and islands are a paradise of resources
Italy | Tuscany
The distinctness of its coast, its nature trails and the warmth of its maritime towns make Tuscany the queen of the Italian sea. Thanks to its natural beauty, it is Italy's most popular tourist destination, and not only in summer. The 500 km of Tuscan coastline changes constantly as you follow it from south to north. Rocks one minute, sand the next, world-famous bathing resorts and 20 beaches with the Blue Flag award, testament to their quality and sustainability. We go from the vast, wild stretches of sand in the Maremma to the unique beaches of the Apuan Riviera, where the mountains provide an extraordinary backdrop.Tuscany is the cradle of the Renaissance and known all over the world for its immense artistic and cultural heritage. Seven sites are included by UNESCO on the World Heritage list: not only the historic center of art cities such as Florence and Siena, but also the villages of Pienza and San Gimignano, Piazza del Duomo in Pisa and the incredible landscape of Val d'Orcia that’s the perfect union between nature and human work. 12 Villas and 2 Medici Gardens complete the list of Tuscan gems.
