Tuscany (Italian "Toscana") is a region in central Italy, bordering on Latium to the south, Umbria to the east, Emilia-Romagna and Liguria to the north, and the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west. It is often regarded as among the most beautiful parts of Italy.
It was perhaps the region in which the Italian Renaissance produced its best results. The unique artistic patrimony of this region includes architecture, painting and sculpture, collected in dozens of famous museums like the Uffizi in Florence.
Notable tourist destinations in Tuscany include Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Maremma (in the Grosseto district), Crete Senesi, and (Siena). Tuscany is currently promoting "agritourism" (Agriturismo), in which visitors stay on working farms.
