Art, culture, tradition, and delights for the palate in the midst of painterly landscapes: Tuscany is one of the most popular vacation regions in Italy. And it’s where Pinocchio hails from!
Pinocchio at home in Tuscany
Pinocchio, the wooden puppet with the long nose, was born in Tuscany.
Come along with us and the little rascal ever curious to check things out, as we introduce to you a few of the highlights of one of Italy’s most beautiful regions.
San Gimignano, town of towers
14 remaining medieval house towers of what originally were 72 in number rise proudly into the sky above this small Tuscany hill town. They were status symbols erected by the town’s most prominent families or houses.
The enchanting medieval town lies halfway between Siena and Florence.
