You’ll never be short of things to do in Tuscany – as well as being renowned for its natural beauty, it’s also a hotbed of fantastic cycling trails, various walks and nature reserves to explore – perfect if instead of hitting the beach all day, you fancy doing something a little more active! It’s also an area known for its world-class white wine, so sip on a glass (or two!) of fresh locally sourced produce with a meal, by the beach or during one of the various vineyard tours available.
Beautiful Florence is the largest city in the area, drawing in masses of tourists keen to sample its rich Italian culture and view its collection of Renaissance art and architecture – which is some of the finest anywhere in the world. Historical attractions such as The Uffizi Gallery, The Accademia and its statue of Michelangelo’s David, and the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo are other must-see locations. Outside of these popular tourist attractions, Florence also has outdoor markets, exclusive boutique stores and five star restaurants to indulge in.
One area a little smaller than Florence but of equal popularity is Siena, which has some incredible architecture. And of course, the ancient port city of Pisa (which we all know for its infamous leaning tower) is definitely worth a visit – and not just for the obvious reason either, as it’s also home to some exquisite historical architecture and ancient churches, perfect for anyone interested in architecture.
