TUSCANY

 

A perfect land, and certainly the most privileged. Every town and city has splendid monuments of art, but Florence stands head and shoulders above all. The visitor has the whole of Italian art at his fingertips from the 13th to the 16th centuries in Florence, Siena, Pistoia, Lucca and Pisa. Artists include Cimabue, Giotto, Piero della Francesca, Simone Martini, Leonardo and Michelangelo. Literature boasts Dante, Petrarch and Boccaccio. Mountain resorts in summer and winter are Abetone, Vallombrosa and the towns on Monte Amiata. Seaside resorts include Forte dei Marmi, Marina di Pietrasanta, Viareggio, Castrigliocello, Punta Ala, the Argentario with Porto Santo Stefano, the isle of Elba, the Isle of Giglio, and Giannutri. The most important spas are at Montecatini and Chianciano. The folk festivals are the Siena Palio, the Jousting tournament (Giostra del Saracino) at Arezzo and the Gioco del Ponte in Pisa. For handicrafts: ceramics, wrought iron, leather goods, and raffia work. The typical dishes include the T-bone steak (alla Fiorentina), while Chianti and Elbani wines are known the world over.
