There’s a lot to Tuscany. The ever-inspiring cities of Florence and Siena, unforgettable landscapes, sculptures by Michelangelo, paintings by Botticelli, and hilltop towns that seem to have jumped off a postcard. There’s inspiring architecture that can take you on a journey from the Gothic to the Renaissance down a single street. And some of the finest foodand wine in the world. We try to reflect all this in our guide. We’ve taken all the things that we think are special about Tuscany and divided them into easy to navigate areas of interest.
It’s taken a lot of research. But we like to think of it as a labour of love.
The up-to-date information and useful tips in this online travel guide to Tuscany will help you to better plan your trip. And get the most from each area. We also try to suggest places that you might not have thought of visiting. Our advice is to mix the most obvious sights, like the Leaning Tower of Pisa or the Uffizi Gallery, with some of the less visited attractions.
Of course, part of the pleasure of travelling to this part of the world is adapting to the slower rhythm of life, connected to the seasons. Tuscan people make time to enjoy life and invite the travellers to do the same.
