Italy, land of the “dolce vita”, is famous for its wonderful food and wine, its luxurious sports cars (Lamborghini, Ferrari), its innovative artists (Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Marinetti), its sophisticated fashion (Armani, Gucci), its poetry and music and, let's not forget, beautiful cities like Florence, Venice, Pisa, Rome, and Milan. Italy's Tuscany stands out as one of the favorite regions of a country that is among the most visited countries in the world. That should not be surprising because the region boasts picturesque hill towns and fine food -- and one of the world's most famous treasure troves of art in the city of Florence. It is the sort of place that a person visits once, falls in love with and returns to again and again.
