Tuscany Travel Guide


Buonconvento dates back to the 12th century, though it was surrounded by defensive walls in the later middle ages. Though the name means "happy place" in Latin, it was here that Holy Roman Emperor Henry VII died in 1313, cutting short his ill-fated attempt to establish imperial rule in Italy.
