Tuscany Guide

Tuscany is one of the most spectacular and beautiful regions in Italy, with a lot of cities and places to discover and that can turn your trip into something magical thanks to the great variety of styles that each one of them has. Here is a brief guide to Tuscany with the essential places that you must visit if you are going to be there:

Florence : A city with an impressive architectural culture and in which you have several museums that contain paintings and sculptures that are a reference in the world of world art. The cathedral is spectacular and has a lot of palaces and gardens, like those of the Medici.

Siena : It is one of the Italian cities that I like the most thanks to its medieval style. It is nestled on a hill and has a beautiful fan-shaped square (piazza del Campo). Very interesting the Bell of the Tower of Siena, the Tower of the Mangia or the cathedral, as well as several museums.

San Gimignano : A walled medieval place that is also known as the "city of beautiful towers" thanks to the medieval towers that survive from that time and that leave you with a spectacular landscape. It is also on a hill in Tuscany.

Lucca : One of the best preserved walled cities in the entire country. Within its walls you will find a lot of trails to walk or ride a bike, as well as a lot of gardens to enjoy nature. It also has several very well preserved towers.
Pisa : Without a doubt its main attraction is the famous Tower of Pisa but there is much more to see, such as its medieval center, the Duomo and a lot of parks, statues and houses of such illustrious figures as Lord Byron. Taking a walk along the river is one of the best activities you can do.

Cortona : It is also on a hill and surrounded by Etruscan walls that are more than 3,000 years old. You will be able to discover in every corner a spectacular medieval architecture with stately buildings and wonderful views.

Montepulciano : It has one of the most impressive squares in Tuscany and from there is the famous wine called Vino Nobile. It is also walled and built on a narrow, sloping limestone ridge.
