Travellers and activities
Tuscany exudes the air of its ancient past, being home to several holidays’ worth of sights for lovers of antediluvian heritage and archaeology. Vetulonia is arguably Italy’s most important Etruscan city. Discovered in the 1800s, it houses the remains of myriad Etrusco-Roman homes, the town’s fortified wall and several tombs. In Volterra, archaeology lovers will find many of Tuscany’s most formidable Roman treasures, such as the magnificent amphitheatre just below the city centre. But the highlight is perhaps the hugely impressive ruins of the ancient Roman town of Cosa in the far south of Tuscany, with cyclopean walls, a forum and acropolis.Tuscany for lovers of the seaside

But for outright beauty, nothing beats Maremma in the south of Tuscany, with its turquoise waters, thrilling sunsets and the evergreen forest of the Uccellina Park nature reserve.Tuscany for romantic couples
