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
Thank you to Loredana Agosta. What an amazing lady. She entertained us with fact in such a way that it immediately captured our undivided attention and converted us to instant art and history lovers. She is highly recommended and a definite asset to the team/business.
Easy to follow, great guide. Nice lunch and wine, beautiful castles and medieval towns. Great way to experience the Tuscan countryside.
Our guide, Francesca, was extremely knowledgeable, delightful, and energetic. From the moment we got to our meeting spot, she welcomed us and introduced us to the other tourists taking the tour. The tour allowed us to skip the long line on Sunday morning. Francesca kept us engaged for the entirety of the tour which focused on all the works and history of Michelangelo. The length of the tour was also perfect, and it actually lasted a bit longer than an hour. Francesca has a gift for divulging a lot of information in a way that never seemed tedious or overwhelming. I am very happy I made the decision to book this tour.
I wish I could remember our guide’s name - he was wonderful. If the tour operators read this he is balding, with a light beard, and was an engineering major in college. Only 6 people in our small group and the cost was well worth skipping the hours-long line. Plus, the guide was extremely informative and, unlike many tour guides in Italy, his English was outstanding and he was easily understood.
My boyfriend and I have been in Florence before so we decided we want to do something different this time. As we both love cooking we decided to improve our skills in preparing italian food. This experience couldn’t be better and it was an excellent choice for an afternoon/evening activity! Luca, Max and Luiggi were amazing and very entertaining hosts. We were alternating between pizza and gelato peparation and had fun during every step of the process. Class was a perfect combination of theory, practical demonstration and hands on experience in preparing pizza and gelato from scratch to the perfect final product. The evening concluded with great dinner and amazing view of Florence in the evening.
