Tuscany holidays 2021

Characterised by rolling hills, ancient towns and shady olive groves, Tuscany gave rise to the quintessential image of the Italian countryside.

The greatest artists, architects and writers of the Renaissance came to prominence under the Tuscan sun, and holidays in Tuscany are defined by the artistic and architectural riches they left behind. From Florence to Siena, you can spend days marvelling at the churches, galleries and museums. Not to mention some of Italy’s most celebrated vineyards and famous sights, among them the leaning tower of Pisa and the village of San Gimignano.

Outdoor Activities in Tuscany

In summer, Tuscany breaks focused on exploring outdoors can be just as rewarding as those that delve into history and culture. Gentle adventures include paddle-boarding through the centre of Florence and hiking the Via Francigena, while adrenaline junkies can get their kicks diving off Elba Island or clambering up one of six Via Ferrata courses.

Visiting the great cities of Florence, Pisa and Siena is naturally top of many visitors’ wishlists on Tuscany holidays, but no trip is complete without getting into the countryside or out to the coast.

  • Tuscany’s hilltowns enchant from the moment the sun breaks through the morning mist to the last rays of the day. Medieval San Gimignano is the most visited. Volterra, Pitigliano, Montepulciano and Cortona are also well worth exploring.
  • Even on a day-trip to Florence you can see the city’s top sights: the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio and the Uffizi.
  • Pisa is synonymous with its 58m-high leaning tower, which tilts off centre by 3.9 degrees. The rest of the city offers a glut of Renaissance and Gothic churches, elegant piazzas and fascinating museums.
  • Siena has been inhabited since Roman times. The small city is centred on a majestic square known as il Campo, where the Palio horse race takes place each year.
  • The Tuscan Archipelago National Park protects ​more than ​600 square kilometers of coastline, including islands and dive sites. Small group tours focus on hiking and snorkelling.

Beyond hundreds of frescoed churches and Medieval piazzas, these are just a few of the historical highlights you can discover on holidays to Tuscany.

  • Spread across Tuscany, the Medici Villas and Gardens collectively make up a remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site. They’re preserved in recognition of the Medici family’s influence on European art and culture.
  • The Area Archeologica Massaciuccoli Romana offers a glimpse into Tuscany’s more ancient history. You can explore the ruins of the Roman villa that once stood here, including mosaics and a thermal complex.
  • Florence’s arresting Basilica of Santa Croce is the final resting place of Michelangelo, Rossini and Machiavelli.
  • Pienza, birthplace of Pope Pius II, was reimagined and rebuilt as a fifteenth-century utopia by Bernardo Rossellino and Leon Battisti Alberti between 1459 and 1462. It’s almost completely unchanged today.
  • Strike out from Montalcino to visit Sant'Antimo Abbey, a magnificent example of Romanesque architecture amid Tuscany’s Renaissance gems.

What’s the best time to visit Tuscany?

The best time to visit Tuscany is either side of high summer, as temperatures can reach 35°C in July and August. Smaller villages can be overwhelmed by crowds in the late spring, but this is also when the Tuscan countryside is at its loveliest.
