Tuscany remains a popular region of Italy for tourists looking to explore the country, it has been claimed.
The news is likely to be welcomed by individuals with buy-to-let property in Italy who are hoping to cash in on the lucrative holiday home market.
In particular, a number of Brits are being drawn to the region to take advantage of a growing number of golf courses that are available to play at, the Italian State Tourist Board has said.
"What they are trying to push now is golf. They have some very beautiful golf courses. Being green and hilly, it lends itself to golf courses," Stefania Gatta, a spokeswoman for organisation said.
"So really you can have the whole experience in Tuscany. You have food, landscape, sea, mountains, golf and spas. It is a very interesting region and very well loved."
Meanwhile, recent research from Travelsupermarket.com has found that despite government austerity measures many Brits are still planning on taking a holiday this year.
