Tuscany is home to some of the most famous italian red wines, the Chianti included. Although they are all based on the same wine grape, they all have completely different taste.
Prosecco – Quality Sparkling White Wine
Prosecco is a cost affordable wine that has good quality, and can compete with the usually more expensive champagne. Its name originally came from a village in the region of Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Today though, the only “real Prosecco” is produced in Veneto.
La Donna è Mobile from The Rigoletto Opera
The world wide famous aria La donna è mobile was written to the opera Rigoletto from 1851 by Giuseppe Verdi. The aria, with a title claiming that the woman is flighty, is the Duke of Mantua’s song at the beginning of act 3 in the opera. The irony is that it’s the duke, an insensitive playboy, who is the flighty one!
The Leaning Tower of Pisa and The Square of Miracles
The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most popular tourist attractions – and you can find in Pisa, Tuscany. The UNESCO proclaimed it as one of the World Heritage Sites 25 years ago.
Colosseum – Bread and Circuses
Colosseum is an amphitheater, which has become one of Rome’s most popular tourist attractions, with millions of visitors each year. The first one to use the name Colosseum, was the English monk Bede in 700 AD. The name probably referred to a giant statue of Nero that stood nearby.
