ANOTHER GOLDEN TIP
If you want to travel from the Tuscany region for a day trip, remember to follow Ana Patrícia’s super tip: the 3 hours rule! What is this rule? If it takes up to 3 hours to get to and from any city using public transport, it’s worth it, as it won’t be a tiring trip or rush; however, if the round trip time exceeds that time, it ends up not being worth it, unless you sleep at your destination and come back at the end of the next day.
Our beloved Tuscany! Do you know the origin of the name Tuscany? I tell you now!
Tuscany, in the Middle Ages, was called Tuscia. This name came from the Latin Tuscia, and designated the territory inhabited by the Tusci, that is, the Etruscans. Tuscia is the plural of Latin Tuscus. Tuscia is synonymous with Etruria which derives from the name of the region of Tuscany; in time: in the region of Lazio we find a city, in the province of Viterbo, called Tuscania.
