Tuscany borders with the Ligurian Sea on the west, and is attached to the other Italian regions such as Liguria, Emilia-Romagna, San Marino, Umbria and Lazio.

Tuscany also has seven islands which all together form so-called Tuscan Archipelago (Arcipelago Toscano).


"According to legend the seven islands that make up the Tuscan archipelago where created when Venus broke her pearl necklace in the Tyrrhenian sea."
- Tuscan Folk Tales

About one third of the region is hilly, one quarter is filled with mountains and the rest of the territory is plain.

 

Interesting fact:

The smallest island of the Tuscan Archipelago is Gorgona, and it is only about 2 square km. The access to the island for outsiders is very restricted. Its population is about 300 people.

There's a prison based on the island Gorgona, and it is set up as a working farm. The prisoners working on the farm support the whole island with their own production.
