Tuscany holidays 2020 & 2021

A highly seductive medley of Renaissance cities, rolling hills and terraced vineyards, Tuscany offers the quintessential Italian experience. From the olive groves and cypress alleys to the romantic villages perched on rocky outcrops, the landscape here has become a symbol of the country as a whole.

Its truffles, olives, wines and cheeses combine in a rich culinary tradition that makes dining a pleasure all of its own. Yet, the region's greatest treasures are the medieval masterpieces of Florence, Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano and the astonishing legacy of art and architecture they hold.
