Tuscany is a region in central Italy. Florence is the capital of the region, which is divided into the provinces of Arezzo, Florence, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, and Siena (named for their principal cities).
Tuscany posesses a number of various landscapes. The zone of Apennines is characterized by modest agricultural economy and depopulation of the territory. The zone of hills lies on the territory of Florence, Pistoia and Lucca. The plain zone of Pisa and Valdarno is the most industrialized part of the central Italy. The zone of the sea costs is quite low and is covered by the pine forests, it is a well developed touristic part of Tuscany. The greatest valleys of the region are Lunigiana, Garfagnana, Mugello, Casentino, Val Tiberina, the main river is Arno and two lakes are Massaciuccoli and Chiusi. Should be noticed that with the ages the original landscape of Tuscany changed a lot, and only few places conserved the ancient classic beauty.
