Extending from Appennino to the Tyrrhenian Sea, Toscana is undisputed in the world's tourist landscape. The landscapes (worth mentioning the territory of Mugello), the artistic heritage and the important cities, first of all Firenze, make this region unique in the world. The region has a coastline that alternates long and sandy beaches with rocky cliffs and steep promontories. Incomparable are the islands of Arcipelago Toscano, surrounded by mediterranean vegetation, crystal clear sea and rich seabed. Sights of unspoilt nature can be admired on the Alpi Apuane and in many protected areas, which host numerous species of migratory birds, including the pink herons. And then, medieval villages, towns rich in history, castles and fortification systems, and suggestive abbeys are present throughout the territory of Chianti and Maremma.
Among the most important places is Firenze, considered the place of origin of the Renaissance and is universally recognized as one of the cradles of art and architecture thanks to its many monuments and museums, including Duomo, Santa Croce, Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria and Palazzo Pitti. Well known, especially for the carnival, is the town of Viareggio also known as seaside resort.
Toscana is formed by 10 provinces and 276 municipalities. The provinces are Florence, Arezzo, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa and Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena.
