1. FLORENCE Florence is the regional capital of Tuscany, in the centre of Italy. And it is one of the most popular film locations in Italy. A town with a turbulent and action-packed history, it is situated on the River Arno. Florence's most striking landmark is Brunelleschi's dome on the Duomo, and its most reproduced sight is Michelangelo's statue of David. In summer, at the height of the tourist season, Florence can be heaving with tourists, as well as uncomfortably hot. But Florence is a tourist city, and many of its artistic attractions are indoors, so the town is really an all-year-round destination.

Filmed there: Hannibal (2001); A Room with a View(1985); Von Ryan's Express (1965); The Young Indiana Jones (1992); Tea with Mussolini (1999); Under the Tuscan Sun (2003) 2. PISA Pisa is best known for its Leaning Tower, but the architectural and artistic marvels of this beautiful city shouldn't be missed either. The long walk from the Campo dei Miracoli to the train station is run through a pedestrian mall with many interesting sights, shops, and restaurants.

Pisa is also a relatively safe city for tourists.

Filmed there: The English Patient (1996) 3. GROSSETO Grosseto is a town in Tuscany, and is the capital of the province of Grosseto.

Filmed there: The Talented Mr Ripley (1999); Tea with Mussolini (1999) 4. SANGIMIGNANO San Gimignano is a small walled medieval hill town in the province of Siena, Tuscany. It is mainly famous for its medieval architecture, especially its towers, which may be seen from several kilometres outside the town. The town is also known for the white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, grown in the area.

Filmed there: Tea with Mussolini (1999); Where Angels Fear to Tread (1997); Brother Sun Sister Moon (1972) 5. SIENA Siena is a medieval city in the region of Tuscany, located in the north of Italy, about 40 miles south of Florence. It is probably best known for a colourful horse race, Il Palio, conducted twice each year in the summer. Sienese people are fiercely proud of their city and their neighbourhood. And medieval Sienese art (painting, sculpture, architecture) is unique and of historical importance.

Filmed there: My House in Umbria (2003); The English Patient (1996); Tea with Mussolini (1999) 6. …
