The stunning landscape of Tuscany includes a large area of hills and the stunning Apennine mountain range that sees many quarries sitting side by side with steep slopes that make for a perfect winter ski location.
One of the top areas of this beautiful part of southern Tuscany is the always popular lava dome of Monte Amiata, which is home to an amazing ski resort sitting around 600 to 800 metres above sea level.
The northern Apennines run through the Tuscan area with the highest mountain in Tuscany is Monte Cimone, which is more than 2,100 metres in height and is a great choice for those who enjoy summer hikes and trekking to explore the abundant wildlife. The winter months see a large level of snowfall that sees the area frequented by large numbers of snowboarders and ski enthusiasts.
Many of the lower hill regions are home to beautiful Tuscan villages and towns, which can be explored for their architecture and small local restaurants and bars.
