Top 10 things to do in Tuscany

Tuscany is a lot more than just sipping wine and dipping homemade bread into delicious olive oil. Experience the region’s incredible nexus of country and culture with these 10 sights.

Abbey of Sant'Antimo

Abbey of Sant'Antimo

Along your hike in the classic Tuscan countryside, you might seek out this peaceful Romanesque abbey—hear Gregorian chanting echoing its chambers.

Piazza dei Miracoli

Piazza dei Miracoli

One of the most significant architectural multiplexes in the world - here you'll find Pisa Cathedral, the Pisa Bapistry, the Tower of Pisa and the Camposanto Monumentale.

Tower of Pisa

Tower of Pisa

An icon of Italy, the Leaning Tower of Pisa got its infamous tilt during construction, as the ground was a bit softer on one side than the other.

Florence Cathedral

Florence Cathedral

The Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore is the main church of Florence, complete with a gigantic Gothic dome that remains the largest brick dome ever made.

Palazzo Vecchio

Palazzo Vecchio

Florence’s massive town hall could more accurately be described as a fortress-palace. The giant estate features an ornate entrance, three courtyards and countless grand rooms.

Ponte Vecchio

Ponte Vecchio

Crossing the Arno River, it is Florence’s most iconic stone arch bridge, known for the butchers’ shops built along it. Today you’ll find jewelry boutiques and art dealers instead.

San Gimignano

San Gimignano

Located in Siena, you could call San Gimignano the first ‘skyline’ with its 15 medieval towers. Come for the town’s charming pastoral setting and tangible history.

Biblioteca Piccolomini

Biblioteca Piccolomini

Located in the Siena Duomo, it’s easy to forget about the incredible collection of texts here when faced with the vibrant frescos and illuminated manuscripts.

Uffizi Gallery

Uffizi Gallery

Regarded globally as one of the greatest museums, the Uffizi Gallery houses all the masters of the Italian Renaissance—Botticelli, Michelangelo, Titian and da Vinci.

Palazzo Comunale Siena

Palazzo Comunale Siena

A prime example of Italian medieval architecture with Gothic influences, this palace in Siena is known for its soaring bell tower and stunning frescos in each room.

Our insider tips

How many days to spend in Tuscany?

Tuscany is not a region to visit for the weekend. Plan to spend 1-3 days in Florence, Siena and Pisa each, then drive to the coast and take a ferry to one of the islands for the beaches. After 10 days in Tuscany, you’ll really be feeling la dolce vita.

What to wear?

Wear layers, as the sun is hot during the day and it can get quite cool in the evenings. You should be comfortable and casual; this is the countryside after all. Pack light—one formal dress or shirt is enough.

How to get around Tuscany?

Only renting a car will give you the full ability to explore the natural beauty and historic quality of the region, from vineyards to palaces. Be sure to request an automatic if you’re used to driving it, as most Italians drive stick shift. Of course, bike tours through Tuscany are a lovely alternative.

What people are saying about Tuscany

One afternoon for Wine Tasting in Tuscany?

We had one free day for doing the Chianti Wine Tasting and we waited until the last minute to book. Get Your Guilde offered an afternoon adventure with two wineries (more than enough for our simple taste buds) with a bit of history in the middle to help us focus on the tastings. The timing of the tour was slowed by the fact we all - (all 64 of us - more people than live in the town we visited!!!) had to walk to board a city tram from the meeting point. Then we all got off to board the bus. We were finally on our way almost an hour after our scheduled tour. Alberto was very personable but we would have appreciated different info than almost the word-for-word narrative that the wine hosts offered. Tell me something about the region? Tell me about the history? Tell me how the various times in the containers produces the variety of wine? Give us more details on the balsamic preparation? Provide better narrative. Bring a sandwich!!

Laura went above and beyond as our tour guide!

This was my 4th GetYourGuide tour and all were very good. However, in this case, Laura provided an exceptional experience which really stood out. She was very passionate and knowledgeable. My wife (honeymoon) does not usually appreciate art or history, but she was hooked throughout the entire tour. Absolutely would recommend, just for the art, but if you get Laura you are in for a special treat.

Excellent tour, not only art highlights but the history of Florence1

Julia was an amazing guide. She was able to put everything together-- the art, the history, and why the Uffizi is such a special place. One can easily buy a ticket and go look at the art, but we gained such an appreciation for the art - the technical aspects, it's political message, and why the artist themselves were so special. Thank you -- I can't say enough good about this tour!

Great Tour for those interested in the Dome

We very much enjoyed our visit with Giacomo. We felt that he gave us a very good overview of the dome's construction and the paintings on the cupola. Plenty of time to recover at different levels from the climb, people who were slower were encouraged and not made to feel that they were delaying the group. View from the top is spectacular. Thank you Giacomo for a great tour

Tour guide Keiko was great! Very knowledgeable organized.

We loved our trip to Chianti and Sienna. The wineries were awesome, the scenery was beautiful. Would love to have an opportunity to stay in "wine country" in Italy sometime. The tour bus driver was SUPERB! Skilled, safe, efficient. I feel that the tour bus drivers are often under appreciated!
