Tuscany in December, Many thing to do
Impossible to sum up the vast array of art treasures in Tuscany, whether painting, sculpture or architecture. Florence gets all the attention, but you will find richly rewarding Tuscan art in hundreds of museums and galleries, and in virtually every medieval town and village. Excellent exhibitions throughout the year.
Michelangelo, the Duomo and the Ponte Vechio in Florence; the Piazza del Campo in Siena; the tower in Pisa. The famous attractions in Tuscany will not disappoint. If you can visit outside the summer months even better.
Hilltop Towns and Villages
Tuscany hill villages can become addictive. Wonderfully atmospheric locations and packed with stunning Renaissance treasures. At their best in spring and autumn.
The 150-mile long Tuscany Riviera often gets overlooked and provides a good antidote to cultural overload. Popular Tuscany beach resorts include Marina di Peitrasanta, Viareggio, Piombino, Populonia, Baratti and San Vincenzo.
From simple rustic country cooking to stylish restaurants and 5 star hotels, Tuscany offers a fantastic choice of quality dining, particularly in the smaller towns and villages.
Tuscany wine is famous throughout Italy. Visit gorgeously scenic vineyards and sample Montecucco, Brunello and Chianti. Many Tuscany holidays are based solely around wine-tasting tours!
Walking and Cycling
Walking and cycling in Tuscany is a deeply rewarding experience, whether a Tuscany camping holiday or leisurely ambling from luxury hotel to luxury hotel. Regions like Chianti, Arezzo and Maremma are superb for cycling. Also excellent horse riding and hot-air ballooning.
Tuscany holidays combining relaxing country locations and educative courses are very popular. Tuscany courses naturally lean towards painting, photography, cooking, Italian language and the thorough study of fine wine.
Tuscany opera is world famous. Tuscany also hosts jazz festivals and regular concerts in Lucca and Viareggio. Carnival in cities like Siena and Pisa are unforgettable, as are the hundreds of charming local festivals in small towns and villages.
