Much of Tuscany’s appeal is its timelessness, so when something innovative happens, like 2021’s Uffizi Diffusi (Scattered Uffizi) project, take note. The brainchild of director Eike Schmidt, the idea is to disperse Renaissance works, along with visitors who would typically flock to Florence, to some of the region’s ancient towns, beginning with the hilltop villages of Poppi and Montespertoli. Meanwhile, Tuscany’s famous thermal waters will get new attention with the summer reopening of the Grotta Giusti Thermal Spa Resort (now a Marriott property) just outside Monsummano Terme, and the opening of the Sense Experience Resort in the southern coastal Maremma area, surrounded by just over 12 acres of private park and pine forest and providing access to a private beach. —Julia Buckley
