Tuscany, a key feature of the forthcoming Italy4golf Experiences
Tuscany is one of the most popular regions of Italy influenced by international tourism, just look at the number of VIPs who have purchased a home here, celebrities of the calibre of Sting, Paul Smith and Richard Gere…
For this reason, Tuscany cannot absolutely be missed out of the Italy4golf Experiences, the premium golfing holidays designed especially for the international golfer who wishes to make the most of everything that Italy has to offer, ranging between food, art, culture, as well as countless cities and locations of breathtaking natural beauty.
The success gained by Tuscany is due to its powerful combination of nature, art, history as well as its food and wine. An invaluable heritage that, over the centuries, has become consolidated, its greatest, most widely-known period being the Renaissance, yet which, in reality, has never stopped, featuring no less than 7 UNESCO sites in Tuscany.
We are speaking of historical cities and hamlets recognised worldwide for their beauty and architecture Florence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa, Prato, Viareggio, Carrara, Empoli, San Gimignano, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Forte dei Marmi, Montecatini Terme…
Not only a series of art cities, a whole wealth of museums, squares, historic buildings full of precious items, to the extent that these are considered museum-cities.
But also, a long list of medieval hamlets perched on top of the Apenninesin order to provide breathtaking views of the Chianti vineyards up to beaches along the Tyrrhenian Sea, where you can stop and savour excellent fresh fish.
In short, a journey stretching from the mountain to the sea that can be covered in a few minutes’ drive, while taking the time to enjoy culture and savouring delicious zero-mile PDO products, or a day spent at the spa, choosing from among the 27 spas available throughout the Region!
In a territory such as this, a great deal of space is dedicated to sport and golf: in fact, as it was precisely in Tuscany, more specifically in Florence, that towards the end of the 19th century, the first modern golf course was built in Italy.
Today, it is understandable that there are many golf courses in Tuscany, some of which of great charm and appeal such as the UNA Poggio dei Medici Golf Club, immersed in the Mugello hillsides, the Ugolino Golf Club, one of the oldest in Italy set deep in the heart of the Chianti area, Le Pavoniere Golf Club, an American-style golf course, only a stone’s throw away from the centre of Florence, the prestigious, ecologically-friendly Castelfalfi Golf Club on via Francigena, or the Royal Golf La Bagnaia, perfectly blended into the context of the gentle Sienese hills and designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr.
Stay tuned to discover what we have prepared in collaboration with our contact people throughout the territory in order to give golfers coming from all over the world a wonderful, unforgettable, golfing holiday in Tuscany!
