Tuscany is a region located in the central-western part of the Italian peninsula. It is one of the largest regions of central Italy as well as one of the most densely populated; however, it must be said that population density varies considerably from area to area.
The territory of Tuscany is predominantly hilly; about 25 per cent is occupied by the mountainous ranges of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, the Apuan Alps and other mountain groups, while less than 10 per cent is flat.
The highest peak in the region is Monte Prado, 2,054 m. The few plains extend along the coastal strip and in a part of the hinterland in the north of the region. The coastline is very varied and includes both long sandy shores and wide stretches of rocky, jagged coastline.
Tuscany is bordered to the south by Latium, to the east by Umbria, Emilia-Romagna and for a very short stretch by Marche, and to the north by Emilia-Romagna and Liguria. To the west it is washed by the Ligurian Sea in the northern part and the Tyrrhenian Sea in the central-southern part.
From an administrative point of view, Tuscany has 10 provinces. From north to south we find Massa and Carrara, Lucca, Pistoia, Prato, Florence, Pisa, Livorno, Arezzo, Siena and Grosseto; since 2015 the province of Florence has become a metropolitan city.
The territory administered by the region also includes the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago.
