Tuscany

Tuscany's capital, Florence, with its powerful Medici family, was the cradle of Renaissance in the 14th century. In addition to the great beauty of its countryside and its famous wines (Brunello di Montalcino and Sassicaia above all), it boasts charming cities like Siena, Lucca, Arezzo, Livorno, Pisa and many others. Scooter maker Piaggio and fashion houses Gucci and Salvatore Ferragamo are based in the region. Matteo Renzi was mayor of Florence before becoming Italy's prime minister in 2014.
