Treasures Of Tuscany 12 Days - Hotel Mediterraneo
Italy�s most beguiling region is also its artistic and cultural capital. Blossoming under the mighty Medici dynasty, it is a wonderland of the Renaissance, with Florence and the famous Uffizi gallery, the ancient university town of Siena and Pisa with its leaning tower; the homeland of figures such as Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Dante and Galileo. This tour allows us to sample not only Tuscany�s great cities of art but also to take in the rolling hills, groves and vineyards replete with slender cypress trees and Etruscan walls so often depicted in Renaissance paintings. Our tour is based in Marina di Pietrasanta, a small seaside resort on the Riviera di Levante near the well known resort of Viareggio.
