A LITTLE MORE ABOUT TUSCANY
There are many reasons why visitors come to Tuscany and arguably there is something for everyone. Diversity reigns supreme as it’s possible to travel from sandy beaches to snow-capped mountains, passing coastal plains, vineyards, sculptural cypress trees and dramatically sited hill towns. Visitors come in search of fine art, extraordinary scenery, simple yet wonderful cuisine and wine and to discover a magnificent history. Walk or cycle on mountain paths and rolling hills and lie by the sea on some world class beaches. There is a lot to see and do, the difficulty is really knowing where to start. Certainly we would recommend you started with Florence, then continue on to Siena and Pisa. The list of 'città di arte' can be a little overwhelming: Arezzo, Cortona, San Gimignano and Lucca are all striking. Our Travel Experts can advise you on a tailored tour to suit your interests.
WHEN TO GO TO TUSCANY
The best times to visit Tuscany are between April and May and late September and October. During these months, visitors will find comfortable temperatures and fewer crowds at the major sights. As you might expect, the summer months have high temperatures and heavy crowds.
