Art and Culture in Tuscany
Tuscany is famous for its beautiful landscapes but also for its cultural heritage, its art, its architecture and its history. Tuscany is the region of great cities such as Florence, Siena and Pisa and of smaller treasures of Italian architecture such as Pienza or San Gimignano. For art lovers, a visit to the cities of art of the area such as Siena, Florence, Arezzo, Pisa and Lucca is a must.
It is possible to visit any of these cities as a day trip, leaving from Casina di Rosa in the morning and returning the same evening, even though to fully explore all of the treasures of even one of those cities would require months! Rome is easily reached by car or by train from Grosseto. Perugia is only 1 hour and 45 minutes away.
To experience the history of the region, we suggest a visit the the Etruscan-Roman ruins in the archaeological parks found in Roselle, Pitigliano, Sorano and Sovana. The Etruscan Necropolis are a treasure of immense value and are to be found only in this area.
Also of interest are the numerous medieval castles and abbeys in the vicinity such as Abbey of San Lorenzo, San Galgano, Monte Antico, Casenovole, Poggio alle Mura, Pienza, San Gimignano, Volterra, etc.
Tuscany is the perfect place to learn Italian. In Siena, there are many language schools where you can attend very interesting and useful courses.
