Tuscany Area MapTuscany is an Italian Province which offers on Italy vacatons attractions that include mountainous landscapes, interesting medieval hill towns and a coastline with magnificent and dramatic scenery for your Italy vacation. Tuscany is special enough to warrant having 7 UNESCO World Heritage sites. The heart and soul of Tuscany is the city of Florence, known as the Cradle of the Renaissance with its riches to be found in its art galleries and museums. The city itself is a UNESCO World Heritage site. The Duomo, Florence’s superb cathedral is an amazing structure in itself.  The world-renowned Uffizi Gallery has a collection of mainly priceless Renaissance paintings as does the Pitti Palace. The Galleria dell'Accademia is home to Michelangelo’s iconic Statue of David. Take a stroll over the usually crowded Ponte Vecchio stopping in the middle and taking in the views of both banks of the Arno River and then exploring the narrow streets on the other bank.

An important Siena landmark is the cathedral in the nearby Piazza del Duomo constructed in 1215, a simply magnificent structure. If you happen to be in Siena in either July or August, your visit may coincide with Il Palio.
