Italy, Tuscany from above

Few destinations can parallel the beauty of Tuscany. Its architecture reflects a rich artistic history that visitors can further explore in top museums like the Uffizi Gallery and the Academia. The Tuscan countryside is equally breathtaking, and many consider it the most diverse land in Italy. This spectacular countryside surrounds Florence, a cultural gem that is just one of many exciting Tuscan cities. In addition to its diverse sights, the region offers outstanding local food and wine. Whether you are an outdoors enthusiast, artist, foodie, city explorer, or all of the above, a Tuscany vacation is not an opportunity to miss.

Not only is it a diverse and idyllic destination, Tuscany is notably tourist-friendly. If you want to explore the Ligurian part of the Mediterranean Sea, the city of Livorno is ideally located on the coast and it is within easy reach of Florence. For a picturesque setting out of a novel, try the city of Lucca and stay in a stunning hotel within traveling distance of renowned architecture, including the Leaning Tower and the Ripafratta Castle. The postcard-worthy settings of Siena offer a perfect countryside retreat. For panoramic views and a perfect romantic spot of Tuscany, choose Sam Gimignano and be surrounded by beautiful olive groves.

The natural beauty of Tuscany is unmatched by the other Italian scenery. The region features vast stretches of idyllic coastland that are perfect for calming walks. There are rolling hills for cyclists and mountain paths for hikers. The surrounding Mediterranean Sea attracts swimmers with its crystal-clear waters and vibrant sea beds. It is no surprise that Tuscany vacations are overwhelmingly popular with outdoors enthusiasts.

Tuscany also boasts an unparalleled art collection. Explore the Academy Gallery, and you can see Michelangelo’s David with your own eyes, along with many other world-famous icons. The Leonardo Da Vinci Museum is located in the medieval Castello Guidi and contains many of the artist’s works. Numerous other museums support Tuscany’s hefty cultural reputation.

Besides museums, there are many exciting venues available for city-explorers. The Inferno Tour is a walking tour that traces the footsteps of Robert Langdon, the hero of The DaVinci Code, and stops at all the major landmarks. The 500 Touring Club will put you behind the wheel of a vintage Fiat 500 and guide you through Florence’s top sights. For something slower-paced, you can take one of many glass bead making classes offered in the heart of Florence.

Visitors who want to sample Tuscany’s luxuries should not miss its spas. There are several sites that offer relaxing thermal waters and highly-equipped facilities: Montecatini, Saturnia, Montepulciano, Monsummano, and Bagno Vignoni are among the best. Local food is another luxury to be savored on your Tuscany vacation, and you can learn to cook authentic dishes for when you’re home. Seasonal Tuscan produce of delectable pork, beef, beans, olives, fungi, and porcini are the staples of most dishes are prepared simply– roasted or stewed, without excessive sauces– and are always delectable.

Perfect for romantic getaways in the heart of Italy, low-key sightseeing trips, and lovers of Italian cuisine, a vacation to Tuscany is one you’ve been dreaming of and will never forget.
