This title in the Crossbill Guides covers the famous Italian region of Tuscany. Like all other Crossbill Guides, this guide answers two key questions: what the unique wildlife is of this area and how you can discover the flora and fauna yourself. Besides routes and practical observation tips, this book describes the flora and fauna, the landscape and traditional land use and geology of this region, plus 23 detailed car and hiking routes and 16 sites descriptions, including GPS-locations of key locations.

Tuscany – few places evoke such warm impressions. Well known for its cultural heritage, Tuscany’s natural side has often been just a backdrop for many, often overlooked. Yet the region features a tremendous natural diversity. Tuscany sits at the Mediterranean’s heart and is enriched by species from both the western and eastern parts of the basin.

From the magical Mediterranean light on the rolling hills with scattered cypress trees, and from the sandy shoreline, wetlands and rugged offshore islands to the wild, forested Apennine Mountains – Tuscany sits at the heart of Italy.
