Museums, Monuments & Galleries

Tuscany has a wide variety of places of interest to visit. It hides a sensational history that has been preserved thanks to the different museums. If you are looking for a fascinating history, superb works of art or even a walk through the Italian gastronomy, Tuscany is the perfect place.

Tuscany boasts a priceless cultural and artistic heritage. It houses more than 500 museums throughout the region with endless spectacular works of art. The greatest artists of all time, such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Giotto, Botticelli or Donatello have left their marks on the region’s artistic history. The famous marble statue of David by Michelangelo, the Birth of Venus painted by Botticelli or the Annunciation of Leonardo Da Vinci are some of the main examples that attract millions of tourists every year.

Most of the artistic remains were built during the Renaissance, which was originated in this region. Therefore, most works of art can be found in Florence, as it became the cradle of this artistic style between the 15th and 16th century.
