Tuscany is a year round destination and each season has its charms. Winter is ideal to explore beautiful Florence because there are considerably less tourists, while spring and autumn are great for exploring the scenic countryside and summer is the perfect time to relax at one of the seaside resorts.
The best way to discover the beauties of Florence is by foot. Just wander through narrow streets and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and adorable shop windows before you hop into a hidden trattoria to have a truly delicious lunch or dinner. Must-see attractions include the Duomo cathedral, medieval bridge Ponte del Vecchio, Ufizzi museum, Galleria dell’ Academia and perfectly manicured Boboli gardens that offer stunning views of the entire city.
Chianti and Val d’ Orcia is where you will discover the magic of Tuscany and see incredible landscapes that will literally leave you speechless. Rolling hills with green vineyards, olive groves and cypress trees are dotted with decadent renaissance villas and picturesque villages and towns. This is where some of the world’s best wines are made, so a guided tour with wine tasting at one of the wine estates is a must.
Other than the iconic Florence, which can be too crowded during summer months, you can also see other charming cities like Siena, Cortona, Arezzo, Luca, Montepulciano and Pisa, while Forte dei Marmi is the ultimate destination for a beach honeymoon in Tuscany.
