Tuscany is one of the most popular destinations in Italy, and these photos easily explain why.
Located in central Italy, Tuscany stretches from the Apennine Mountains to the Tyrrhenian Sea. From the rolling hills with scenes of serene countryside dotted with wineries, to vibrant cities famous for art, architecture, and food, and to the pristine seashore, Tuscany has it all.
