Florence: Is the capital of the province as well as of Tuscany, of which it is the largest and most densely-populated city. It is also the main historic, artistic, economic and financial hub of the region. Florence was an important cultural, commercial and financial center during the Medieval and Renaissance periods, and for a long time was under Medici rule. Florence also became the temporary capital of Italy after Turin and Italy unity (1865-1871). Tourism is a driving force for the Florentine economy thanks to the increased number of conventions and exhibitions held here (especially in the Fortezza da Basso area). In the immediate suburbs, the high-fashion industry has grown and now flourishes in the most trendy streets of the city center, where you'll find the greatest fashion-designers' shops.
Chianti: Lies in the high Tuscany, in the provinces of both Siena and Florence. Historically this territory has always been contested between these 2 Medieval powers. The centers, castles and fortified villages established in the area bear witness to this boundary struggle. The most populated villages are Castellina, Gaiole and Radda in Chianti - they are all flourishing rural tourist areas. This land is home to one of the most famous wine brands in the world. In 1927 the Chianti Wine Association was founded and today it accounts for more than 2,500 producers with more than 13,000 hectares of vineyards producing more than 80,000,000 liters of Chianti wine each year. Chianti Denomination of Origin (DOC) was authorised on 1967 while Chianti Denomination of Origin Controlled and Guaranteed (DOCG) was formed in 1984.
