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

Knowledgeable and Fun! Great experience!

Alla was our guide and she was lovely! She was very knowledgeable about the styles, techniques and features of the artworks moving through time. The tour was paced well with time for photos and questions. She was able to tell us specific details about the art movements and paintings themselves. The tour was small (9 people) so you were able to follow and keep up. Would highly recommend! It was a little more expensive than other tours but worth it.

I would use your service anytime. It worked out great!

What a difference your service made for us. It made our whole day work out wonderfully. The time entrance worked perfectly. The gallery employees working at the entrance of Academia were very helpful. We were able to enter at the front of the line. What a relief! Your on-line purchase was easy. So glad I did this far ahead of our trip. Because of this, I felt relaxed ahead of the trip. The David was amazing.

exceptionally well organized and enjoyable experience

Our tour guide - Angela - was so passionate, energetic and enthusiastic about sharing the culture of Tuscany that you could not help be motivated and excited to learn and be involved in the tour. The tour bus driver was extremely safe and cautious driving thus, I felt safe at all times. All in all it's a fantastic tour experience.

Best of Tuscany Full-Day Tour from Florence Reviewed by JOHN, 07/12/2019

Easy ticket collection - great to skip the queue!

Slight confusion as to where to pick up the ticket but it was simple enough - make sure you don't go too early to collect as you'll end up in another queue! Perhaps it wasn't so busy (I went on Sunday around midday) but I walked straight through, slight queue to collect the audioguide but that wasn't too bad either.

Our guide Alla was excellent. We did not see the time go by.

We learned a lot with Alla who was also very kind. She did not count her time and answered to all questions. We Highly recommend this tour with Alla. Notre guide Alla était excellente elle ne comptait pas son temps et a pu répondre à toutes nos questions. Nous avons appris énormément. Merci beaucoup Alla.
