The Villa Medicea Ammiraglio Giulio de’ Medici in the North Central part of Italy, easily reachable by every mean of transportation: highway, train, 2 international airports. With a 250-km coastline, a gorgeous archipelago easily accessible by ferry boat, breathtaking mountains such as the Apuan Alps and the Appennin range, and several lakes, Tuscany is probably the most all-encompassing region of Italy, with a unique blend of history and nature. Here is where the modern Italian language was almost single-handedly invented by Dante Alighieri, and here is also the birthplace of the Renaissance which, through art and science, would propel mankind into our current age. At the Carrara marble caves Michelangelo would personally choose the slabs to be used for his masterpieces, while a few centuries later, Puccini had a beautiful estate overlooking lake Massaciuccoli, where he composed most of his operas. Tuscany's landscape is world-famous, scattered with olive groves, vineyards, and sunflower fields, and dotted with lovely winding roads of cypress trees. Almost every single product of the Tuscan soil is world-renown: olive oil, fine wine, spring water, mushrooms, and the list goes on and on.
