Pisa is a good place to start your holiday in Tuscany. It only takes two hours to fly to the city of the famous leaning tower. On the square with the Tower of Pisa, you will also find the Pisa Cathedral, the Baptistery and the Camposanto, which are all impressive buildings in their own right. Ready for a break? Order a cappuccino or a limonata at a charming outdoor café. You will have many nice places to choose from as Pisa is a student city bursting with life.
The same applies to Florence, the capital of Tuscany. A real cosmopolitan city, it’s the beating heart of the region. You won’t know which of the Renaissance treasures to see first. If you like architecture, reserve at least a whole day to explore the Duomo, the Palazzo Vecchio, the Ponte Vecchio and the Basilica di Santa Croce. Don't forget the Boboli Gardens – a green oasis with the most beautiful fountains. Would you prefer to see some of the world's best artwork? Then head to the Galleria Degli Uffizi, or one of the many other museums in Florence. Florence is also a great destination for Italian cuisine. Whether you try a bistecca alla Fiorentina, cantuccini or the most delicious flavours of ice cream, it all tastes delicious everywhere.
Another great way to enjoy Tuscany is to rent a car and start exploring the region. After travelling past rolling hills and along white gravel roads, you will wind up in the most beautiful places, such as Lucca, San Gimignano (famous for its towers) and Volterra. Don’t forget to visit Siena. Many people say that this charming city has the most beautiful square in Tuscany. Its narrow streets and the surrounding alleys make it one of the most popular destinations in the region. Do you enjoy a good glass of wine? Then Tuscany will be paradise for you. The wine regions here, from Chianti to Brunello and Montepulciano, are unsurpassed. Why not dream about your next Tuscan destination over a glass of wine. La vita è bella!
