The Tuscany region
The classic landscapes of Tuscany have long held an irresistable attraction for holidaymakers. Made famous by the Renaissance artists, the landscape provides a stunning backdrop to your stay. Visitors are spoilt for choice in terms of Tuscany tourist attractions to visit and Tuscany sights to see, whether it's the Duomo and Uffizi Gallery in Florence, the leaning tower in Pisa or the Campo in Siena. Tuscany even offers some great seaside resorts and is also wonderful walking country too.
Undoubtedly the best known and most visited city in Tuscany is Florence. With its stunning architecture and incredible sights, and a host of Florence attractions, from the Duomo to the Uffizi, and from the Palazzo Pitti to the Ponte Vecchio, it's a city full of wonderful art and architecture and beautiful gardens. You must make a point of visiting Siena during your stay too. The cityscape is easily one of the most recognisable Tuscany sights, with it's black and white striped Duomo and huge piazza, home to the famous Siena Palio. The next city on your list of places to visit in Tuscany is Pisa. The main Tuscany tourist attractions in Pisa are, of course, well known. The leaning tower of Pisa is known world wide but is just one of the attractions to be enjoyed in the Campo dei Miracoli (Field of Miracles), the others being the Duomo, Baptistery and Camposanto. Head out a short way from this main tourist area and you'll find a much different city. Near to Pisa is Lucca, smaller in size than the other Tuscan cities, but one of the richest. Surrounded by the old city walls, the city has a much more intimate feel and is a lovely place to spend an afternoon, exploring it's museums, churches or streets. It's well worth a visit. Smaller in scale again is San Gimignano, one of Tuscany's most famous villages. It's stunning skyline of towers captures the very essence of what people think about when they think of Tuscany. It does get extremely busy as it is popular with tourists but it's a must-see destination for any Tuscan holiday. Make a point of visiting the interior of the Collegiata which is stunning, filled with beautiful frescoes. Also worth seeing are Museo Civico and Pinacoteca. And finally build up an appetite by climbing the Torre Grossa, the only one of the towers you're able to go up. You'll be richly rewarded at the top by stunning views of the Val d'Elsa. Finally, furthest south on your tour of Tuscany is the city of Arezzo and town of Cortona. Again, a visit to Tuscany wouldn't be complete without a trip to both places. Of course, the landscape surrounding all these places is stunning. Visitors can gain immense enjoyment simply from driving across it's rural hills and enjoying the Tuscany sights en route. And don't forget as well that the region is bordered by the sea. Taking a trip to the coast is certainly a fun day trip if you want to escape the heat inland during the peak Summer months. And there is plenty to keep the children entertained too, whether it's a waterpark, aquarium or theme park. Finally, for golfers, if playing amid olive groves and vineyard covered hills is your idea of the perfect round of golf, then Tuscany is certainly an ideal destination! Please ask for more information on what to see and do in the area.
