There are too many reasons why you must visit Tuscany once in your life to simply list off, but we can start with the most obvious. If you’re a wine lover, these are just a few reasons to visit – Nobile di Montepulciano, Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino – wines have become the backbone of a region which has thrived on quality and tradition.
The word Tuscany immediately brings to mind wine and not just any wines, but internationally renowned ones such as Super Tuscans and if you are a wine lover, a visit to this beautiful Italian region is fundamental.
But what makes Tuscany such a popular tourist destination, other than its winemaking tradition? Tuscany is a geographical diverse region of Italy which gives travelers just about any type of experience they could want. It is a region made up of mountains, Mediterranean coastal towns, vast vineyards, agricultural fields beyond eye’s view, breathtaking islands, acres of woods, picturesque rolling hills and miles of olive groves. This very fabric is what makes it so unique and as a result, anything that comes out of this region is simply a reflection of this uniqueness.
There are great things that have come out of this region – Michelangelo, Dante, Brunello di Montalcino, Florentine steak. These great things are the results of a region which has been blessed with arguably some of the most stunning nature around, and a climate which allows for an agricultural bounty both in food and wine.
The mixture of nature, history and art created the perfect mixture all within in 9,000 square miles.
Tuscany’s virtues are many. To discover them, all you need to do is have walk through its countryside. Bring an empty glass so you can taste the mountains, sea, olive groves and more, all within your wine.
