There’s no other city like Florence.
The biggest and one of the most beautiful cities in the region. Florence is a city with such rich history, magnificent architecture, delicious cuisine and bustling life. There is no way that you won’t captivated with the unique energy of the city. Strolling along the banks of the river Arno and gazing at the breathtaking sunsets over Ponte Vecchio. You will find yourself marveling at masterpieces in Galleria Uffizi.
The medieval charm of Sienna.
Sienna might be the loveliest town in Tuscany. It sits over three hills and will invite you to explore its narrow streets, cozy cafes and magnificent architecture. I suggest that you visit the famous palio that takes place on Piazza del Campo twice every summer. This is a horserace and one of the oldest traditions left in Sienna.
San Gimignano – the city of beautiful towers.
This small but lovely village is part of the UNESCO World Heritage List because of its famous towers. At one time 72 towers stood tall. Sadly today only 14 remain. The city its self is surrounded by a 13th century wall. Some parts of the wall are still available for you to explore. Also, most of the towers are open to the public and Torre Grossa gives some of the most amazing views over San Gimignano or to frame your next selfie
The beauty atop the hill – Montepulciano.
This small and picturesque village, located near Sienna and might be the most charming Tuscan villages. Dominated by the production of the typical Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, the small town has seen a great touristic flow in the recent years. Strolling along the narrow, often perpendicular, streets; marvelling at the unique architecture of the village or just relaxing at a cafeteria on Piazza del Duomo will definitely make you feel the typical Tuscan atmosphere.
Tuscany, magnificent cities and charing small villages that are all worth the visit. A few I recommend exploring include, Volterra, Lucca, Pisa and many more. They are all unique, hiding their own treasures and inviting people to get to know and charm them in their own way.
