Food and Dining
The cuisine of Tuscany is all about the ingredients. After all, many people come to Tuscany just to eat! The dishes themselves are quite simple, but the ingredients are fresh and of high quality. You can expect dishes to include things such as legumes, bread, cheese, vegetables, mushrooms, and fresh fruit. The region is also known for its game which includes wild boar, hare, fallow deer, roe deer, and pheasant. Pork and high quality beef are common as well.

Tuscany can be reached by air or land.

From there it's about a three hour drive to Tuscany. The most significant train stations are in Florence, Pisa and Grosseto. Florence actually has two major rail stations with Santa Maria Novella in the center of the city and Campo di Marte located farther out.

Traveling around Tuscany by public transportation is relatively easy. There are both trains and buses that travel the main routes, but if you want to get off the beaten path then a car may be beneficial. The central train station of Florence offers easy access to the rest of the region. You can reach Siena in about an hour and a half and Pisa in a little over an hour.

Buses also travel between the most popular towns. Blue buses offer intercity service while orange buses are local. You should buy your ticket before you board the bus and you can buy them in most Tabacchi shops as well as some news stands and bars. Weekends and holidays have less frequent buses so you should plan your schedule in advance if you hope to travel on these days.
