Immerse yourself in the region’s culture, cuisine and vibrant history
The rolling landscapes of Tuscany shelter some of Italy's most beautiful cities. Florence, Siena, Cortona; Tuscany's natural beauties are outstanding. On Tuscany Holidays you can see some of Italy’s finest works of art, explore fortified villages and sample some of the country's most exceptional wines and culinary traditions.
The countryside here is dotted with elegant cypress trees, quilted with vineyards and olive groves and fringed by beaches of golden sand. Overlaying this natural beauty is more than 2,000 years of history. Lucca’s 16th-century ramparts protect its historic centre which is filled with churches, shops and a vast amphitheatre. Some of Italy's finest beaches are just half an hour's drive from the city.
Set around the Arno River, Florence epitomises Tuscany's greatest artistic achievements. Chianti is perhaps its most beautiful rural region. The landscape here has been sculpted by centuries of farming creating picture-perfect vistas.
The ancient, walled city-state of Montalcino is especially famous for its Brunello grapes which are key to the region's fine wines. Positioned close to all of Tuscany's richest Renaissance cities is the charming town of Cortona. Its medieval centre is a labyrinth of streets and alleyways punctuated by churches and palaces. The annual Palio horse race at Siena is a real highlight too. We can offer packages with prime-viewing positions.
