All About Tuscany
Just at the mention of its name, Tuscany conjures up images of stunning Renaissance art and rolling hills dotted with cypresses. Its historic towns of Florence, Pisa, and Siena are not to be missed, but the region is also home to hilltop medieval towns, sprawling vineyards, and towering mountains. From farmhouse stays to city apartments, and remote villas, this area of Italy offers scenic bike rides, time-honoured osterias, and some of the best gelato in the world. Watch medieval festivals in packed town squares, marvel at Florence’s majestic Duomo, or sample some of the area’s world-famous olive oil at harvest time.
From Pisa’s famous tower to walled settlements and lush pastures that haven’t changed for centuries, Tuscany is a visual masterpiece — and that’s before you’ve even seen the treasure troves of art and sculpture, whether on display at museums or preserved on the walls of secluded chapels in remote villages.
The best time to stay in a holiday rental in Tuscany
Italy’s heat in July and August can be too much for the inexperienced, and Tuscany is no different. If you can handle the high temperatures, sunscreen and plenty of water are must-haves. It’s also worth noting that August marks the start of the traditional holiday for locals, when bars, restaurants, and some attractions may be closed. Up in the hills, temperatures can be lower in the summer months, while coastal breezes and a dip in the sea can also be refreshing. Autumn brings olive oil, chestnuts, and porcini mushrooms, while wild boar also starts to appear on seasonal menus across the region. Winter is when temperatures start to drop, with bigger towns such as Florence getting quieter and snow only likely in the very north of Tuscany.
Top things to do in Tuscany
San Filippo hot springs
Named after a hermit who headed here from Florence in the 13th century, San Filippo is nestled between Mount Amiata and the valley of Orcia. Choose from five hot springs and get the benefits of their rich magnesium, calcium, and sulphur content. Your skin will thank you later! The main draw here are the striking stalactites above the Fosso Bianco.
Have adventures in the Apuan Alps
The produce of this breathtaking area is second to none, with the forest providing a bounty of delicate chestnuts for traditional Tuscan crepes, fragrant porcini mushrooms prized by locals and visitors alike, and glossy honey. Explore the mountain trails and admire secluded farmhouses and the verdant valleys below.
A well-known 18th century French general was famously exiled on this island six miles from the mainland, and though not in exile, locals like to get away to Elba too. During the summer months, catch one of the many ferries crisscrossing the sea and enjoy fresh fish, scenic hikes, and a diving session to admire Formiche della Zanca’s caves. Or just hang out in the idyllic harbour with its pastel-hued waterfront cafes.
