TUSCANY FAST FACTS

  • Tuscany is a perennially popular destination for travelers and received roughly 100 million visitors in 2017
     

  • The tourist high season is generally from April through October, with many visiting in the fall to experience the wine harvests
     

  • Tuscany produces some of the most popular wines in the world, including Chianti, Brunello di Montepulciano, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Super Tuscan

CAN'T-MISS HIGHLIGHTS 

  • Florence: It’s the capital of the Tuscan region, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, and so overflowing with artistic treasures that it’s impossible to take it all on one trip. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try! From Michelangelo’s David to Brunelleschi’s soaring cathedral dome, Florence is an endless feast for the eyes—and your soul. 
     

  • Siena: An enchanting Tuscan town that transports you right back to the days of the Renaissance, Siena is a can’t-miss sight. The faded red brick buildings that encircle the Piazza del Campo—the city square that plays host to the famous Palio horse race—beckons visitors to sit and stay a spell. 
     

  • San Gimignano: This is the Tuscany you see in your dreams—and on all those pretty postcards. San Gimignano is the quintessential hilltop Tuscan town, rising out of the surround countryside covered with vineyards. Grab a scoop of your favorite gelato and get lost in the village’s winding streets—and don’t forget to look up to marvel at its medieval bell towers. 

UNDER-THE-RADAR GEMS

  • Vinci: The birthplace of the legendary Leonardo da Vinci himself, Vinci beckons art, history, and wine lovers. Explore the thorough Museo Leonardiano and see the church where da Vinci was baptized, then head into the surrounding countryside for wine tastings at superb nearby vineyards. 
     

  • Lucca: It’s quieter than its neighbor Pisa, but the medieval town of Lucca has a lot to offer the discerning tourist. Explore the magnificently preserved walls encircling the city, which date back to the 13th century. Don’t miss the gorgeous Casa de Puccini, where the famed Italian composer once lived. 
     

  • Fiesole: Just up the hills from lively Florence, this sleepy town feels worlds away. Check into a stunning palazzo that overlooks the lights of the Renaissance City, sip a glass of chianti in the terraced gardens, and then wake early and slip on your boots to go hunting for truffles with your expert guide.
