Tuscany is one of the greenest regions of Italy. Its protected areas, that cover almost 10% of the region, consist of three National parks: the Tuscan Archipelago National Park, National Park of Casentino Forests (incorporating Mount Falterona and Campigna) and the National Park of the “Appennino Tosco-Emiliano”. A Tuscan holiday means a holiday in nature.

Tuscany vacation: Medici villas and mansions

Tuscan history is inextricably linked to the Medici family, and still today scattered throughout the region are the mansions and villas they once owned. They loved to spending their time in Tuscany. We could almost say that the Medici used to live in a permanent Tuscan vacation. The Medici villas are rural architectural complexes acquired between the 15th and 17th centuries. These Villas, represent, not only places of leisure and entertainment, but symbolise the Medici's power. From the Mugello area, from which the Medici family originated, their palaces and villas are spread throughout all the Region. Many are essentials to be visited.
