Tailor made holidays: Visiting 'good-looking' Tuscany on tailor made holidays
People planning tailor made holidays could consider a luxury tip to Tuscany, in Italy, as it is both interesting and "good-looking".
Lee Marshal, a travel writer known for editing the Time Out guidebooks for Venice and the south of France, noted in the Daily Telegraph that the region has been historically supported by the gold-mining industry.
"Economic prosperity … has given [areas of Tuscany] a halo of light industry and ring-roads, but once you get past the outer gauntlet, what a good-looking centro storico it has," he said.
'Centro storico' is what natives call the historical district of Italian cities. Some very famous and popular centro storico can be found in Perugia and Rome.
Mr Marshall continued praising the region of central Italy: "Add some fine restaurants and wine bars, and the presence of what is arguably the single most essential artistic draw in the whole of Tuscany."
Lee Marshall has lived in Italy since 1984, when he moved there from his hometown of Clevedon, Somerset.
