Tuscany is well known for its postcard-perfect scenery and it isn’t hard to see why - its verdant rolling hills framed by mountains and forests and dotted with villages, vineyards and olive groves are simply sensational. No surprise then that this has been an artist’s paradise for centuries - the Uffizi Gallery in Florence is not to be missed, and there are churches and museums everywhere that house spectacular pieces from throughout the ages.
No holiday in Tuscany would be complete without a visit to Siena or Pisa, and the smaller towns of Lucca, Arezzo and San Gimignano are no less enchanting. But this is also the perfect place to get off the beaten track, with visits to the vineyards of Chianti, hikes through the Gargafnana region and boat trips to the magical island of Elba all possibilities. What are you waiting for?
