The era of the "Free Communes" began during the 12th Century. The first democracies in which the population actively participated, and the first Art and Trade Unions rendered Tuscany a unique example of cultural, social and economic independence. The most important city of the region was, of course, Florence.
Thanks firstly to Dante and to Giotto in the 14th Century and to numerous great artists throughout the 15th Century, Tuscany and especially Florence, gave their decisive contribution to the birth of the Italian Renaissance.
Throughout the Renaissance, Florence was under the influence of the Medici family. The Medicis, among whom the most famous are Giovanni, Cosimo and Lorenzo, were all clever and wise men. Tuscany was governed by the Medici family until 1737.
The Grandduchy of Tuscany was passed to the Lorenas, who held it until 1859.
Tuscany signifies simple and friendly hospitality, able to offer a large variety of: hotels, farm holiday, farmhouse, residence self-catering accommodation, b&b, rooms for rent, holiday homes, camp sites and tourist villages.
