Tuscany , among all the Italian regions, presents a unique historical, artistic, cultural and landscape heritage , a characteristic element of the major centres but also a common thread of minor centres, some of which are true historical cities in a perfect state of conservation, and the works kept inside have aninestimable value, such as in Fiesole and Certaldo,Volterra, San Gimignano, Pienza, Montepulciano and Monteriggioni and many other places that make the unique region great.
There is no historical period, at least in the last two millennia, that does not have significant or important evidence on Tuscan soil, reason why reporting a mere list divided by historical period would not do justice to that delicate balance established in Tuscany between landscapes and monuments, nature and history. Indeed, the Tuscan countryside is known not only for its harmony of colours and shapes, but also the presence of characteristic scattered rural settlements and farmhouses that, especially in Val d'Orcia, blend with the landscape, making it even more evocative for the presence of the famous cypress rows.
Visiting Tuscany is tantamount to entering history, it will become a journey through time and art, towards discovery and homage to genius and human ingenuity, which is able to conquer land without stealing anything from the places, while maintaining the same harmony of the landscape without renouncing the great art events: think of theBasilica of Sant'Antimo or the city of San Gimignano, the city of Pienza and the genius of Bernardo Rossellino, or the charm ofMonteriggioni and the majesty of the city of Siena.
But Tuscany has also great culinary culture thanks to the great wines and dishes that refer to the rural tradition of the places: to get to know the soul and spirit of this region it is necessary to indulge in the pleasure of the table, offering the palateflavours, aromas and wines that have always been cultivated and preserved with passion.
