3rd Century BCE
Tuscany (Italian: Toscana) is a region in central Italy. It is known for its beautiful landscapes, rich artistic legacy, and vast influence on high culture.
Tuscany is widely regarded as the true birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, and has been home to some of the most influential people in the history of arts and science, such as Dante, Botticelli, Michelangelo, and Leonardo da Vinci. The region boasts larger cities, such as Florence, Grosseto, and Siena, as well as smaller towns like Monteriggioni and San Gimignano.
- In Assassin's Creed II, San Gimignano was coupled with Tuscany as one area on the map, unlike Monteriggioni and Florence, which were both separate.
- Tuscany was the only location in Assassin's Creed II without a special Animus introduction.
