Tuscany is a small region in Italy that is popular for its captivating culture and scenery. You probably have seen it in movies or read in magazines but seeing the place for real is a piece of heaven. If you look at the map of Italy, you will see Tuscany as small as a dot. However, this place actually homes the largest collection of arts such as paintings, frescoes, sculptures, and many more matchless masterpieces.

Tuscany is also very rich in heritage and history. Tourists who come to the place would be amaze of the skyscraping museums which homes its artistic legacy and the people who are very reflective of their high culture. Tuscany is the birthplace of the Italian renaissance – six of its localities were named World Heritage Sites. The place holds pride of its beautiful landscape, rolling hills, sunflower fields, huge vineyards, lavish forestry, and refreshing blue waters stretching along the white beach. Above all these, what tourists cannot resist about Tuscany are their exciting one-day cooking classes. You should not leave Tuscany without taking on their culinary pathways or you would miss half of your life.

      Tuscany is a beautiful area but you have not lived until you have walked with the pigeons at daybreak in Piazza San Marco in Venice when the outgoing tide cleans the square and the cafes are just coming to life and you have so much of the beauty of Italy within walking distance. Live your dreams and let us share some of them!
