It is difficult to say why a holiday in Tuscany is so special, maybe the fabulous works of art, or the numerous vineyards and olive groves. One thing is for sure, once you have visited Tuscany you will certainly want to come again.

The first place not to miss is Florence, great for city breaks and there are many more places you can choose to visit near Florence like Mugello, Val d’Elsa, Chianti and Valdarno, all rich in history and artistic property. Siena with its contrade, abbeys and good wine, onto the magical atmosphere of Arezzo.

Fabulous islands of the Tuscan Archipelago, Elba, Capraia, Gorgona, Pianosa, Montecristo, Giglio and Giannutti. Discover Lucca, nearby Versilia with its very famous beaches like Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio. What about mountains? Near Lucca is the Garfagnana region with numerous interesting historic and natural sites.

Moving on from the Lucca area, we arrive in the territory of Pisa, where the River Arno runs through the famous city with its leaning tower. Visit Volterra, then go on to Maremma in the heart of the Province of Grosseto with well known beach centres like Castiglione of Pescaia and Talamone. Pitigliano, Sovana and Sorano, three villages built upon volcanic tuffs which appear to have been hollowed out directly into the rock. Tuscany certainly has lots to offer and is fantastic for city breaks!!
