This vividly green region sits in the central west part of Italy, north of Rome. Exploring the ins and outs of Tuscany beyond its celebrated cities is an interesting way to learn what drives and shapes Tuscan character. The identity and of people who were born and grew up in the area is closely tied to its landscape and eventful past.
The area used to be home to the advanced Etruscan civilization. Eventually, Roman Empire consumed their territory in 351 BC. Since then, things didn't change much up until the fall of the Empire after which Tuscany fell under the rule of various leaders. However, in the end, the region came out of this turbulent power-battle as an independent political entity with its own rulers. The strongest of the Tuscan cities gradually acquired independence and formed independent republics. By the late Middle Ages, Arezzo, Pistoia, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, and Florence transformed into wealthy commercial and agricultural centers.
