The first time anyone goes somewhere new, the most enjoyable part of being in a new place is going out and SEEING the sights, be they places, buildings, monuments, squares, bridges, museums with art and sculptures, churches...?
Yes, churches! Especially in Italy, where many pieces of art were commissioned to adorn a chapel or altar and churches merit visits for their works of art as well as architecture.

Wow many days will you be in Tuscany?
Is this your first time to Italy and thus interested in the main sights or do you also want to include some off-the beaten path areas in Tuscany on a return trip?
Are you up to driving here or prefer to depend on public transport?
We suggest to everyone who really wants to get a taste of Tuscany to give yourself an entire week to spend in and explore Tuscany. There are the cities to explore, such as Florence, Siena, Pisa and Arezzo as well as entire regions, such as Chianti and Val d'Orcia. Of course, not everyone can dedicate all of these days to the region, but if you do have some flexibility, try to get more days in Tuscany rather than less.
Do you feel like driving?
This factor will influence the most what our recommendations to you are about where to stay, so much so that I have decided to separate the best places to stay in Tuscany if you don't want to drive: read that here.
The remaining part of this article is for those that have decided they are willing to drive in Tuscany.

Florence and its grand museums 
See Botticelli and Da Vinci at the Uffizi and meet the David at the Accademia Gallery in Florence. On this Special Tour of the Uffizi you can skip the queues and experience the highlights of Renaissance art with an experienced guide.
Climb a Medieval tower in San Gimignano
You know those 14 towers that make the famous skyline of San Gimignano?
People used to live in them. Climb up and revel in the atmosphere.
Walk the green city walls in Lucca. Lucca‘s ramparts are today the city’s green belt.
Ride it, walk it, or just sit there and contemplate this beautiful, relaxing town.
Try all the wine you can find.
The Chianti region in Tuscany offers unlimited occasions for wine tasting, wine buying and general wine worshipping.
Drive in the Val d’Orcia for “those views”.
You know that enchanting postcard of Tuscany with a hill lined with cypress tree?
That’s Val d’Orcia 
A UNESCO heritage site that’s even more impressive in real life.
One of the most breathtaking of all Tuscany landscapes.
Visit the quarries on the Apuan Alps.
This is where Michelangelo got his marble from.
Reason enough to go there.
The mountain quarries have an otherworldly beauty to them.
Tufa towns in the Maremma.
On the southern tip of Tuscany, you’ll find one of its most bewitching sites.
Pitigliano and its little sisters Sovana and Sorano seems to grow out the Tufa rock itself.
You’ll find plenty of reasons to fall in love with the Maremma.
Meet the Etruscans in Volterra or Cortona.
See the remains of ancient Etruria in these two magnificent hilltop towns.

La Toscana è una regione italiana situata nell'Italia centrale, con capoluogo Firenze.
Confina a nord-ovest con la Liguria, a nord con l'Emilia-Romagna, a est con le Marche e l'Umbria, a sud con il Lazio.
Ad ovest, i suoi 397 km di coste continentali sono bagnati dal Mar Ligure nel tratto centro-settentrionale tra Carrara (foce del torrente Parmignola, confine con la Liguria) e il Golfo di Baratti;
il Mar Tirreno bagna invece il tratto costiero meridionale tra il promontorio di Piombino e la foce del Chiarone, che segna il confine con il Lazio.

La Toscana è certamente tra le più belle regioni d'Italia.
Grazie agli indimenticabili paesaggi, all'ottimo vino e all'eccellente cibo tipico, la Toscana viene visitata ogni anno da milioni di persone da tutto il mondo.

La Toscana è a sua volta composta di molti territori diversi con la loro propria storia, arte, cultura, tradizione e stile di vita. Territori che tutti insieme formano un’unica bellissima regione.
La Maremma
Dopo la grande bonifica del 1828, voluta da Leopoldo II Granduca di Toscana e le successive dei primi decenni del Novecento, la Maremma, che un tempo fu il “pingue granaio d’Etruria”, venne restituita alla sua originaria, selvaggia bellezza.
Arcipelago toscano
La leggenda del Parco Nazionale dell’Arcipelago Toscano vuole che Venere emergendo dalle acque del Tirreno lasciasse cadere dalla sua collana 7 perle che finirono in mare trasformandosi nelle isole che compongono l’arcipelago. Non c’è immagine più calzante.
Il Chianti
Territorio del vino toscano per antonomasia (più ancora di Bolgheri e Montalcino che sono emersi dopo) che si estende fino alle colline pisane e a quelle pistoiesi, raggiunge la zona della Rufina e i colli aretini e senesi, ma il suo cuore rimane il Chianti Classico, tra Firenze e Siena.
Borghi antichi, castelli, ville, abbazie, pievi e monasteri, distese di vigne e olivi ondeggianti sulle multiformi colline che celano nel loro verde intenso le caratteristiche coloniche toscane: questo è il Chianti. Oltre agli itinerari classici, seguire le tracce dei grandi vini che vi si producono è un’ottima idea.
La Val d’Orcia
A nord e a est del Monte Amiata, tra Siena e Grosseto, si estende la Val d’Orcia. La Toscana per antonomasia.
La Toscana da cartolina: cipressi solitari, in filari o in cerchio, svettanti su gialli campi di grano..
Un intero territorio Patrimonio dell’Unesco che va da Montalcino a Montepulciano, a Pienza, e ancora più giù.
Una bellezza da mozzare il fiato.
Dalla chiesetta della Madonna di Vitaleta a Bagno Vignoni, dall’Abbazia di Sant’Antimo a Monticchello, la Val d’Orcia è un’unica gemma di fascino che ti ruba il cuore per sempre.
La Versilia è la costa nord-occidentale della Toscana da cui, nelle giornate terse, si può ammirare parte dell’arco che forma la Liguria, avendo sempre alle spalle l’affascinante skyline delle Alpi Apuane.
Larghe spiagge a perdita d’occhio, locali famosissimi come La Capannina o La Bussola in cui hanno cantato i più grandi della musica italiana, ma anche un entroterra ricco di siti archeologici, pievi romaniche, borghi medievali, fortezze e castelli: la Versilia è una terra che rilassa di giorno ed eccita di notte.
MUGELLO
A pochi chilometri a nord di Firenze, il Mugello vive sui monti dell’Appennino tosco-emiliano che s’innalzano irti, frondosi, dalla pianura fiorentina dritti verso la Romagna.
Da Barberino del Mugello al Parco Mediceo di Pratolino, dal Lago di Bilancino a Scarperia e a Palazzuolo sul Senio (entrambi nel ristretto Club dei Borghi più belli d’Italia), il Mugello è un succedersi di natura, arte e cultura da godersi in pace e tranquillità, come un’immensa passeggiata nel verde della storia.

Tuscany events - Eventi in Toscana
The Siena Palio and Florence Historical Football are Tuscan events very well known worldwide.
Other important events include: Giostra del Saracino (Saracen Joust) in Arezzo with its two editions, in June and September, which dates back to the ‘500, the Crossbow “Palio” which is played in two editions: in Gubbio (Umbria) and Sansepolcro (Tuscany), and the funny Bravio delle Botti in Montepulciano, a race whose aim is to roll big barrels uphills.
The most erudite event is Maggio Musicale Fiorentinon (Florentine Musical May), and the most cheerful one is the Carnival in Viareggio.
The origin of the Explosion of the Cart dates back to 1622, the typical Florentine Easter event.
Welcome to the region of Florence and the Uffizi museum, the Tower of Pisa, the Siena Palio, Chianti and Brunello, Michelangelo and much more …

There are many events all year round throughout Tuscany, but many are concentrated during the summer.
Many sagre, or festivals dedicated around a particular local product, start in early summer and continue on through the fall as local specialties (truffles, wine, olive oil, marroni chestnuts) come into season.
If you are coming to Tuscany during other periods of the year, don't worry as there is always something to see or do (or eat!) then as well.
For specific events, it is best to contact the local tourism office of the locality you will be visiting.

CHIANTI
Chianti è un vino, ma Chianti è anche un territorio, un luogo di natura e suggestioni, uno stile di vita.
Da gustare con lentezza e conoscere in tutte le sue sfumature.
Le Colline del Chianti (note anche come Monti del Chianti o più semplicemente Chianti) sono una breve catena montuosa (circa 20 km) a cavallo fra le province di Firenze, Siena e Arezzo che segnano il confine orientale della regione del Chianti con il Valdarno e la val di Chiana. La vetta più alta è quella di Monte San Michele (893 metri s.l.m.) nel comune di Greve in Chianti in provincia di Firenze.
Le colline del chianti sono famose per i vigneti dai quali si ottiene un vino noto in tutto il mondo.

Le colline del Chianti sono una dolce catena ondulata a cavallo fra le province di Firenze, Siena e Arezzo e caratterizzano questa terra cara agli uomini dalla notte dei tempi. Dal punto di vista storico, per secoli, il Chianti ha compreso la zona dei comuni di Gaiole, Radda e Castellina, parte della vecchia Lega del Chianti, costituita nel lontano 1384 dalla Repubblica Fiorentina e che aveva come suo simbolo l'ancor oggi famosissimo gallo nero. Con la costituzione della zona vinicola, nel 1932, il territorio noto come Chianti venne notevolmente ampliato.

Accommodations in Tuscany region - Sistemazioni in Toscana
Tuscany is one of the most popular destinations in Italy and around the world given its beauty and tradition of hospitality.
This has led to a wide range of choice as far as accommodation goes, from hotels to B&Bs to apartments for self-catering holidays.
In larger cities such as Florence, Siena and Pisa, hotels are often the main choice for anyone visiting the city.
However, bed and breakfasts have become more popular as they often offer a more economical solution as well as offering more interaction with your local host, one that can offer you advice on where to eat, where to find what you need and so on.
If you prefer the independence of an apartment, you won't have trouble finding one that suits your needs, especially in the historical centers.
The Tuscan countryside is dotted with farmhouses and cottages converted into holiday homes, perfect for anyone who wants to combine the charm of country life with close proximity to the "art" cities.
Just remember that having a car available, in this case, is crucial.
Villas, castles and resorts, often quite luxurious and full of history, offer larger rooms to host events or simply enjoy a luxury getaway.

Like any Italian region, Tuscany has its own ingredients, recipes and hyper-local food traditions that are best to stick to while eating out in Tuscany.
Start your meal with an antipasto of cured sliced meats or affettati misti, always popular, or try something more particular and order crostini di fegato, thin slices of lightly toasted bread spread with a chicken liver pate. Don’t let the word liver turn you away, it has a rich, rustic taste and it’s good for you as well!
Tuscans are particularly fond of their soups.
Try the ribollita, a vegetable and bread soup that functions as a delicious and classic comfort food.
Papa al pomodoro, a tomato soup, is perfect for the winter and during summer you have the panzanella, a kind of cold salad of bread soaked in balsamic vinegar and mixed with onions and tomatoes, basil all topped with olive oil of course!


La Toscana è piena di prodotti tipici, tutti unici e significativi.
Ogni angolo della Toscana ha sorprese gastronomiche.
Inoltre, se la Toscana è da sempre vista come la patria della carne (vedi salumi e bistecca fiorentina) vi mostrerò come in realtà questa stupenda terra è piena di golose sorprese vegetariane e vegane.

La TOSCANA è una delle regioni italiane più ricca di piatti tipici.
La cucina toscana è caratterizzata da ricette relativamente semplici ma che prestano grande attenzione alla genuinità degli ingredienti.

ALCUNI PIATTI TIPICI TOSCANI...
Pappa al pomodoro
Ribollita
Panzanella
Castagnaccio
Panigacci
Bistecca alla fiorentina
Lardo di Colonnata
Cacciucco

Like all Italian cuisine, Tuscan cooking is based upon using the most fresh and simple ingredients of the season including many legumes, cheeses, vegetables and fruits.
Typical dishes are based upon what Tuscans find fresh and local at the market that week, making them often very easy to prepare and involving few ingredients.
Although the food may be simple, it is rich in flavor, very hearty and quite filling.
All meals are served accompanied by the regional bread: a white, plain, unsalted loaf.
The bread is also flavored by using a variety of ingredients for crostini such as crostini di fegatini (liver paté) or the simple and delicious fettunta, a grilled slice of bread with garlic, olive oil and salt.
The fettunta is a great way to take your hand at olive oil tasting too - there is nothing better than unsalted bread to truly indulge in the pure flavor of local olive oil, which is the base for all Tuscan dishes.
Other appetizers that you will commonly come across are wooden cutting boards covered with cured meats which include prosciutto, lard from "Colonnata" and different types of sausages, all cured for long periods of time creating distinct, rich flavors.

Many Tuscan dishes were invented based on the principle of “waste not” such as ribollita a tuscan vegetable and bread soup and pappa al pomodoro a tomato and bread soup
Pappa al pomodoro is another very traditional dish made simply with the day old bread, tomatoes, olive oil and sometimes a hint of garlic, depending on the recipe.
As simple as these dishes sound, they are flavorful enough to have become a favorite among locals and also among tourists throughout the decades.
Other first course dishes in Tuscany are simple pastas such as pappardelle alla lepre o al sugo di cinghiale, a fresh, egg noodle pasta with either a hare or wild boar sauce.
Another common dish coming from this principle is Trippa and Lampredotto, particularly in Florence.
It is served both as street food as well as in five star restaurants.
Of course, we cannot talk about Tuscan cuisine and forget to mention the famous steak that comes from Valdarno and Mugello called "bistecca alla fiorentina". The Tuscan steak, which comes from a special cow breed, the Chianina, is served very rare alongside roasted potatoes and beans. It can be found at most Tuscan restaurants throughout the region but some are better than others.
Tuscan side dishes don’t vary too much from other regions but you can be sure to always find beans and some kind of hearty green vegetable sauteed in olive oil on the menu. You will often see sauteed spinach or chicory in olive oil and garlic, which they do very well - you will never have guessed you are eating a vegetable! You will also always find side salads, roasted potatoes and when in season, artichokes prepared in various methods, grilled mixed vegetables such as eggplant and fried zucchini flowers in the summer months.
Tuscany isn’t famous for their desserts and meals are generally finished with a simple piece of fruit or bowl of fresh berries when in season.
After all, having just packed in all those courses, it may be hard to find room for a rich dessert.
