Due to its wealth of natural gifts Tuscany has always been on the list of everyone heading to Italy. From hot springs in Saturnia to wine tasting tours, Tuscany has been able to cater to tourists since tourism in Italy was born. So, if you are in the early stages of planning a trip to Italy and creating your list of things to do in Italy and more specifically looking for places to visit in Tuscany here is a tip you need to check out: Aboca Museum in Sansepolcro. It is a bit off the beaten path but a fast hop on and hop off while road tripping in Tuscany isn’t that unthinkable.
What is Aboca?
The term Aboca comes from “Abiga,” an ancient name from the Tuscan dialect for Ground Pine, a medicinal plant with purifying properties used in antiquity. Aboca is one of the biggest phytomedical companies which has been investing in the study of medicinal plants for human health since 1978 with the conviction that nature can provide sustainable solutions to the health issues of humans.
Probably due to my attachment to my original Sri Lankan culture, I can say that I strongly believe in this theory and I also think that now is the right time to rely on nature more than ever.
I had originally heard about Aboca from a girl I met at a Solimè Herbal Shop in Italy back in 2006 and here I am visiting the Aboca Museum today.
