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

    1. 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

    2. 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

    3. 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

    4. 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

    5. 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

    6. 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

    7. 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

    8. 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

    9. 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

    10. 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.

Planning Your Visit

  • 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.

It was such an amazing time, Claudia was very good with keeping in line with the the schedule and providing us with enough time at every stop to explore on our own. This is a must for all of those who are not familiar with the country at all and are looking for a deep dive into the culture. I cannot say much more than to book the tour, you’ll be in good hands. Especially with Roberto the driver behind the wheel. I slept most of the time I was in the bus, usually I don’t feel safe with drivers, but his skills really put me at ease after the first leg of the tour. Enjoy and don’t forget to give them five stars!!! Thank you both and thank you Italy!!

Really good choice. Our guide, Chris, was amazing! He was really insightful and we had a nice time with the rest of the group. Really complete day (bus, train, boat) with breathtaking views. Make sure to pack your sneakers though :)

I had the most amazing experience. Cristina was the perfect guide. I learned about Florence, the food, the wine! It was the highlight of my trip!

For someone who want to make it one day i recommend this experience. It has it all from hiking to boat trip to Cinque Terre!

Excellent itinerary. Well managed. Really great guides on the bus and the tour in Siena itself. Great location for lunch
