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
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!!
First and foremost our tour guide has to be mentioned. Liza, apologies if I’ve mis-spelt, was amazing. Due to her passion for and knowledge of her home region this was more than just a wine tasting experience. I very much enjoyed her commentary on the history of Florence and the many Villages we past through during the trip. Thank you so much for making this a very memorable experience, you are a credit to your industry. As for the experience it’s self, it was very well organised. The wineries and villages we visited were very interesting and picturesque. I feel I should also mention our driver, Claudio, again I hope I’ve spelt it correctly, it was dark and raining heavily on our return on roads that would have been challenging driving a car in these conditions never mind a large coach. He was very professional and ensured we all returned safely. Many thanks all for a very enjoyable and memorable day.
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!
Claudia is a wonderful tour guide . We learned so many things we could not have guessed even from tourist books . I love how Claudia loves her city and shares this with us . It was a very small tour ( 6 people ) which made it even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this tour .
We had a great guide lead our group. We were so impressed with her knowledge. My only feedback is that finding the meeting point is a challenge. The instructions are clear on where to go, but if you've never been before (like most of us) it's hard to find the meet up point.
