Florence and Pisa are two destinations often included in an Italy trip, and all for the right reasons. Florence is the capital of Italy’s Tuscany region, and renowned for its many masterpieces of Renaissance architecture, dating back to the 15th century. Churches, museums and galleries across Florence showcase this, in both subtle and glaringly obvious ways. Either way, art enthusiasts across the world come to Florence for this very reason.
As part of Tuscany, Pisa is also an iconic destination. Of course the most recognizable icon is the leaning tower. Standing at a height of 60 meters, the tower started to lean dramatically to one side, and consequently, it is one of the most photographed landmarks in all of Italy. Aside from the tower, Pisa has so much more charm and beauty to offer. Other attractions include the Duomo, Baptistery, and the Camposanto Monument.
As well as good cuisine, Tuscany also has a long history of wine making and production. Agriculture in Tuscany has historically focused around grapes (for wine), olive trees, and wheat.
