The Tuscan Coast has always been an important crossroad for populations and cultures, so it is no surprise that it is an unique treasure trove that has long been famous. The beauty of the countryside and pristine beaches are unparalleled; the picture-postcard views of vineyards and cypresses, archaeological sites, medieval villages, hills to the sea, from the coast to the islands. The light and colours have been an inspiration to local artists like Amedeo Modigliani and musicians such as Pietro Mascagni who are emblematic of the creativity, beauty and art have resided over the course of the centuries. It has attracted travellers through the ages, due in part to the warmth and hospitality of its inhabitants, qualities that continue today with a vast range of accommodation services, excellent tourist services, efficient infrastructures, road and rail networks and well connected ports and airports making it is easy to reach the beautiful islands and the artistic cities such us Florence, Pisa, Lucca and Siena.
