Tuscany and Umbria are the most frequented regions in Italy. Goethe was impressed of the the beauty of the Tuscan landscape and inspired by the richness of cultural heritage. Tuscany offers many attractions, such as the Uffizi Gallery and Ponte Vecchio in Florence, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, San Gimingnano, The Siena Palio, endless beaches from Forte dei Marmi down to Punta Ala, the Monte Argentario peninsula with the chique towns of Porto Santo Stefano and Porto Ercole - just to mention few of them. Uncountable historical sites bear witness of the ancient civilisation of the Romans and Etruscans. Redwine and olive oil are the most renown agricultural products of Tuscany. Umbria, called the "Green Heart of Italy" also produces remarkable wines, especially in the area around Montefalco. Many historical sites and centres amaze visitors. Perugia, Todi, Assisi, Spoleto and Orvieto are just a few of a seemingly endless list. It is a must to visit the medieval village of Bevagna. One could believe, that times have not changed here for centuries - extreemly impressive. Lake Trasimeno borders Tuscany in the north of Umbria. It offers plenty of leisure activities and the environment here is still in sound condition. Tuscany and Umbria can easily be reached with flights to Florence, Pisa and Rome.
