coast. Cities: Florence,
Arezzo, Pistoia, Lucca,
Livorno, Grosseto, Massa Carrara. Places worth visiting: In addition
to art, Tuscany offers outstanding
nature sceneries, such as the National Park of the Argentario
and the Isola of Elba. In Siena there is the beautiful Piazza del Campo.
In Florence there are the fifteenth-century shops on the Ponte Vecchio.
Pisa has the Campo dei Miracoli, with the famous Leaning Tower. Lucca
is surrounded by its medieaval wall still intact which encloses the charming
town centre with its many churches, stylish shops and historic monuments.
still seems today like a labyrinth of squares and lanes which get narrower
and more concealed the closer one gets to the heart of the centre. Visitors
to Lucca not only admire the historic beauties of the town but can also
indulge their palates in the mouth-watering local specialities. One can
go shopping in the Via Fillungo (the most famous shopping mile of the
centre) where boutiques, antique shops, coffee bars and “trattorias”
characterize the townscape.
Very near to the Fillungo is the place drama lovers went to the theatre
during the period of the Romans. Centuries later houses were built on
the foundations of this imperial theatre and so the oval shaped “Piazza
del Anfiteatro” was born. This square is one of the most picturesque
in the whole of Italy and one of the most well- known in the whole world.
It is a “must” for every tourist because you can still see
the remains of the original town wall.
