Category Archives: Tuscany


Within these pages I will explore the beautiful northern region of Tuscany in text and images. The main focus will be on Florence, the region’s capital, its art and architecture, politics and history, and some of the remarkable characters from the time of its Renaissance. I will also visit the fascinating medieval city of Prato and admire the art of cities such as Lucca, Sienna and Pisa, after visiting the beautiful upland valley of the Mugello, the Medici homeland and the foundation of their wealth and authority.
