International Health Insurance News: Tuscany 'combines skiing with sight-seeing'
When thinking about the Italian region of Tuscany, it is difficult to move past ideas of sun-drenched vineyards and rustic villas.
However, overseas health insurance customers will find that the area boasts excellent skiing opportunities too.
According to Stefania Gatta, spokesperson for the Italian State Tourist Board, Tuscany combines "very good" ski packages with plenty of sight-seeing opportunities, meaning overseas medical insurance policyholders can soak up Italian culture after a day of hitting the slopes.
"Tuscany is quite famous for its thermal baths," Ms Gatta pointed out.
"Montepescini is one of the most famous places, with very beautiful thermal baths there. But they are scattered a bit all over Tuscany. There are public thermal baths, but there are also some beautiful hotels and resorts."
Meanwhile, a report from the Association of British Travel Organisers to Italy revealed that 55 per cent of UK operators believe Tuscany is the top region in terms of bookings between July and September this year.
This has propelled Tuscany to the top Italian region for summer holidays.
