Promoting cultural patrimony, environmental protection, excellent hospitality and incredible resources are just some of the area’s best qualities. It is thanks to these qualities, that the Touring Club Italiano awarded 35 Tuscan areas with the Orange Flag, a symbol of environmentally-friendly tourism.
Italy’s most awarded region definitely knows how to maintain the perfect balance of hospitality, quality food, wine and traditional products and its vast artistic riches.
In the province of Florence awarded areas are Barberino Val d’Elsa, Certaldo and Vinci, the birthplace of Leonardo: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist and writer whose genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, Leonardo epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal.
Tuscany is synonymous with excellence thanks to its amazing historic and artistic treasures that seem to stop time in its tracks. Like cultural jewels scattered around the territory where traditions and treasures of the past are still alive and well. The complete list of Tuscany’s Orange Flag towns on Intoscana.
