Italy is undoubtedly one of the most visited countries in the world, but the different regions of the country are vastly different from one another. Although Venice remains on the bucket lists of travelers all over the world, it is the Tuscany region that is most prized among those that have traveled to Italy.

Florence is the capital of the region and remains a growing part of the country.
