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.
Along your hike in the classic Tuscan countryside, you might seek out this peaceful Romanesque abbey—hear Gregorian chanting echoing its chambers.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
What a fun few hours spent with Luca, our guide. He spoke excellent English and gave us a very interesting tour around Lucca outlining the history and various landmarks. There seemed to be no question he couldn't answer! The bikes were easy to handle and in good condition and the small family-run vineyard was like being invited to lunch by distant family. The tour was very simple, showing winemaking on a small scale but they answered any questions we had and we got to try 3 very nice wines with a delicious lunch. There was no hard sell to get us to buy more wine, but we did anyway! Just as we were due to leave the heavens opened so we were invited back in to drink coffee until the rain had passed. Throughout the day we felt we got very personal service and were not rushed on to the next stage at any time. I would highly recommend this tour.
Our day was spent with enjoying the amazing Florence scenery, the truffle hunting was amazing to watch them being uncovered- we were a little suspicious at the ease however as the hills were also used by other truffle hunters they would be crazy to plant them. The meal we enjoyed with new friends showed us the best of what truffles have to offer, with a Chianti winery stop on the way back to Florence rounded out a great day
The only disappointment was that our original tickets were for the day when a student climate protest paralyzed Florence. We were not able to get to the bus and when we finally had time to use the tickets, they had expired. Had to purchase new tickets. We enjoyed the ride but the money that we lost because of tickets that we could not use due to local civil unrest has left a bad taste.
The guide had interesting facts and was able to keep the attention. Also had answer to all questions asked, well done. We where only with 3 people, because two where unable to make it and finally 5 after two other late comers.
I enjoyed this exhibit tremendously. I will recommend it to friends. The only downside was people who couldn’t keep their hands off the exhibition pieces.
