Tuscany is a region created for relaxation in body and soul! History, culture, architecture, breathtaking landscapes and fine wines are mixed here.

Usually, when it comes to Tuscany, green hilly fields, the Leaning Tower of Pisa (Pisa) and the dome of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore (Florence) come to mind ...

This article will focus on five lesser-known, but no less noteworthy cities and attractions in sunny Tuscany.

1. Arezzo

Arezzo is a charming old town in Tuscany with many sights and monuments of ancient and modern history. It is located in the Arentian hills, near the Arno River, sixty-five kilometers from Florence.

Arezzo is the birthplace of such geniuses as Francesco Petrarca and Giorgio Vasari. In this city, the science of solfeggio was invented.

All the main attractions of Arezzo are concentrated in the medieval center. Be sure to check out the Church of San Francesco, which boasts well-preserved frescoes. Pay attention to Piazza Grande, also called Piazza Vasari. This square is one of the most picturesque squares in Italy and has a slope of almost 30 degrees. Also noteworthy are the museums of Arezzo. Visit the Museum of Medieval and Modern Art at the Customs Palace and the Archaeological Museum of Gaius Tsilny the Maecenas.

The people of Arezzo honor tradition. Every year on the third Sunday in June and the first Sunday in September, the Knights Tournament is held here. Participants dress up in colorful costumes, and horsemen from all city districts compete in shooting at wooden targets.

Another interesting feature of the city is that Arezzo is the largest in Europe and one of the world's largest centers for the production of gold and silver products.

2. Lucca

Lucca is an old town on the Serchio River. It is the only city in all of Italy that has completely preserved the ancient fortress walls surrounding it, which previously successfully protected Lucca from enemies and floods. They give the city a unique atmosphere of the Middle Ages, comfort and romance.

Lucca was once called the city of towers - there were more than a hundred towers and high fortifications. Unfortunately, very few have survived to this day: the medieval Clock Tower, without a dial, but beating off midnight, the Guinigi Tower and a tower with oak trees, from which a beautiful view of the city opens.

The heart of the city is the Piazza San Michele market square. Here is the beautiful Cathedral of San Michele in Foro, built in 1070. One of the most elegant squares in the city is Napoleon Square, which houses the Elise Bonaparte mansion. Another attraction of the city is the Amfitheatro square. Not far from which is the Basilica of San Frediano. The Church of St. John and the Great Martyr Reparata is another magnificent Christian temple in Lucca. It housed the first residence of the city's bishops.

An interesting feature of Lucca - as many as 100 churches were built in a small town!
