Tuscany features beautiful medieval villages perched on hills and breathtaking landscapes. This place ranks as one of Italy's best destinations because there are many discoveries to be made there. Spectacular monuments, Renaissance art, beaches, and the countryside are unmissable points of interest in Tuscany.
Florence is one of the most popular places in Tuscany to experience Renaissance art and architecture. Tourists usually go there to view the Duomo Santa Maria del Fiore, the Battistero di San Giovanni, or Piazza del Duomo. Added to this are the many museums, such as the Galleria degli Uffizi, where the works of Giotto, Botticelli, Michelangelo, and Leonardo da Vinci are exhibited. Of course, it is possible to see the statue of David, the Medici-Riccardi Palace, and the Ponte Vecchio. Then, the medieval city of Siena is mainly known for Piazza del Campa: the large fan-shaped square, and Il Palio horse races in summer. The high bell tower of Siena, Torre del Mangia, is also a point of interest for travelers. Further on, in San Gimignano, also known as the city of beautiful towers, 14 medieval towers remain in the surrounding countryside. There, it will also be time to tour the Fortress of Montestaffoli. As for nature lovers, the natural hot springs of Tuscany await them. The most famous are the Saturnia, the Bagno Vignoni, the Petriolo, and the San Filippo. That said, the town of Montecatini Terme is also attractive for its ancient thermal baths. In Tuscany, it is unthinkable not to go to the Leaning Tower of Pisa, a symbolic monument of the region. On the Chianti side, it will be the ideal point to visit picturesque villages revolving around wine production. Vineyards and countryside are as far as the eye can see in this place. For beautiful walks in the middle of nature, go to Lucca, home to one of the best-preserved ramparts in Italy. Those who wish to discover the Tuscan archipelago have the choice between staying on one of the islands or cruising. In any case, lovers of the sea will be delighted, especially those who are big diving fans. Finally, we must remember the medieval summer festivities of Tuscany, such as the Monteriggioni di Torri si Corona during July, the Balestro del Girifalco Massa Marittima in May and August, or the Bravio delle in August as well.
