Tuscany Holidays

Our handpicked Tuscany holidays are all creamy coastline and Tuscan countryside driving through Italy’s most famous wine region or lounging on the beach

From tangerine and ochre tinted rolling fields and castles in the sky to golden sands where wealthy Italians spend their weekends, Tuscany holidays are rural countryside masterpieces and stylish Riviera breaks. Expect decadent wine tastings, menus overseen by Gordon Ramsay, designer shops in seaside towns and ancient ruins high up in the hills.

Ask us for palms, pines and beachfront vibes lapped by the Tyrrhenian Sea and we’ll put you in the pretty coastal town of Viareggio under a private beach cabana where dipping in and out of the deep blue is as strenuous as it gets. We’ll make you sure sip a glass of Champagne at one of Forte dei Marmi’s exclusive beach clubs and see an open-air Puccini opera under a star strewn Tuscan sky. Tell us you want to share medieval cobblestoned streets with Michelangelo sculptures, Duccio masterpieces and works by Donatello and we’ll send you to the heart of historic Siena pinpointing the magical ruins of Sal Galgano’s abbey and the striking Carolingian chapel inside the active monastery of Sant’ Antimo as hot spots to visit too. And if you heard it on the grapevine that this is the land of a thousand wine tours we’ll unleash your inner oenophile at legendary vineyards dripping down the hills of Chianti, tasting full bodied Super-Tuscans and indulgent farm-to-fork treats.

In an enviable location within easy reach of Florence and Pisa, holidays to Tuscany add an extra dimension to your Italian adventure – fortified cities laid out on Roman grids, slivers of silvery countryside olive groves and a sugary coastline disappearing into secrets coves. Talk to an expert begin your Tuscan adventure.

Where is Tuscany?
Tuscany is a region in central Italy bordering Liguria to the northwest, the Tyrrhenian Sea to the west and Umbria to the east. Its capital is the historic city of Florence and it’s divided into ten provinces including Lucca and Siena. The vast landscape of Chianti sits between Florence and Siena and stretches almost into Pisa to the east.

Getting around Tuscany
Hiring a car is the most flexible way of exploring Tuscany. The roads are good – if not sometimes busy around Florence and Siena – and the pretty winding back roads are much quieter offering beautiful scenic routes to tiny villages and towns. Driving around historical centres is not permitted so we advise parking your car just outside and then walking in.

Food & drink
A gourmet adventure with specialities varying in each area, expect a focus on fresh local ingredients, renowned wines and Tuscan olive oils. Grilled and roasted meats are high on the list as is cucina povera – hearty but simple food made with fresh produce. Make sure to try homemade ribbons of egg pasta, Florentine T-bone steak and the classic Tuscan antipasto misto. You’ll find pretty tavernas serving classic dishes, excellent pizzerias and centuries old buildings housing restaurants with extensive wine lists where you can try those famous sweet and dry reds. Book a wine-tasting tour to discover some of the region’s most renowned wines and learn how to pair them with your favourite Italian dishes.
