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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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: Our 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

Best way to get your Florence introduction

Loved the tour, our guide Marzia had a lot of interesting stories of the town. The tour starts later because you walk with the guide to pick up the bikes at another stop. We took the 6 pm, after dark it's hard to get a good picture.

Fun and interesting way to see the city!

We made a last minute decision to go to Florence and were keen to see as much as we could in a short time. The cycling tour was a fun and informative way to do this and we were able to see more of the sights than would have been possible on the walking tour. Although you don't get time to go into the sites, it is definitely a useful way to help you narrow down which ones to see and to hear about ones you might lot have heard of. Our guide Francesca was very knowledge and ready to answer any questions we had. The tour went at a slow pace and was relatively flat after all so it should be fine for cyclists of all abilities. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Great way to spend an afternoon in Tuscany!

The tour was fantastic, Daniele our guide was very informative and friendly and our small group of 8 was a good size for the activities. The horse riding was really fun, even for someone who has never ridden a horse before and the wine and lunch at the end were delicious. Highly recommended this tour!
