Tuscan Artisans and Crafts

Where we eat in Tuscany

Tuscan design and quality, reflects a care and passion in its products and produce, that is at the root of the Tuscan way of life. Pride and passion in how Tuscans look, and what they produce. The Italian love of life and beauty is very evident in Tuscan design and production standards. Tuscany Traveller finds superbly designed and made goods, from Tuscan artisans and crafters that have spent years developing their skills and work with their hands to their own or other's designs. 

Traditional and modern, Tuscan and fusion we write about where we eat. This month we feature Quanto Basta San Lorenzo, Firenze.

Traveller's Reviews
Tuscany is he most famous of the 20 regions of Italy. In central Italy, its western edge is coastline, but to the north, east and south it borders with 5 other regions: Liguria, Emilia Romagna, Marche, Umbria and Lazio. Tuscany is celebrated for its wealth of art, illustrious history (Etruscan and Roman) and richly evocative landscape. It's a place where the past and present fuse into a delicate harmony. Whichever part of the province you choose to explore, you will find an ancient land every bit as captivating as its reputation promises. Your only problem is deciding what to leave out.  Tuscany Traveller gets behind the tourist exteriors and finds the real Tuscany to make your choices easier and your travel even better. There are different types of holidays:you can laze by a pool or learn to cook, paint or take photographs, all holidays available.
