Top Tourist Attractions & Places to Visit From Tuscany
The rich cultural and history of Florence makes it a must-see destination for any traveller. But beyond its impressive heritage, this city is one of Italy's most atmospheric and pleasant, retaining a strong resemblance to the quaint late-medieval centre that contributed so much to the cultural and political development of Europe. Its striking buildings, formidable galleries and treasure-crammed churches are a feast for the eyes. On our holidays to Tuscany, we’ll discover all of the highlights of Florence including visits to its famous Duomo, Ponte Vecchio and Piazza della Signoria.
One of the most charming aspects of Tuscany are the tiny medieval towns dotted across this region’s lush landscape. On our holidays, we’ll visit two of the most scenic, Siena and San Gimignano. In Siena, a Gothic walled city that boasts some of the finest architecture in the region, we’ll wander its winding streets and impressive Piazza del Campo, home to the famous horse race. In the hilltop town of San Gimignano, we’ll have free time to admire its impressive display of medieval tower houses or try some of its delicious local wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano.
Thanks to its extraordinary Leaning Tower and the impressive Campo dei Miracoli where the tower is situated, the university town of Pisa is one of Tuscany’s top attractions. The town’s historic centre has well-preserved Romanesque architecture and spacious piazzas, where students and locals enjoy the city’s buzzing café and bar scene. On our holidays to Tuscany, we’ll get to discover this picturesque town and even have time for a picture or two with the iconic Leaning Tower.
The beautiful Renaissance town of Lucca is not only the birthplace of Puccini but also the only city in Italy completely surrounded by walls. These remarkably intact city walls provide an ideal set of viewpoints from which to see the town’s rooftops, bell towers and lush surrounding countryside. On our trips to Tuscany, we’ll have free time to visit Lucca’s impressive Cathedral of San Martino, which houses Tintoretto’s painting of The Last Supper and a wooden cross carved by the biblical figure Nicodemus.
The town of Montecatini Terme is the base for all of our Tuscany holidays. Renowned for its healing thermal waters, Montecatini is the perfect place to unwind after a day of exploring the region. A vast array of treatments are available at various spas and wellness centres in the town. Terme Tettuccio, normally open daily from May to September, is perhaps the most famous of these establishments. The attractive Liberty style building has a beautiful interior and gardens, where live music is played most days. It’s well worth a visit, even if not availing of a treatment.
