Tours and itineraries in Tuscany
If you’re looking for an amazing holiday in Tuscany, you should start by organizing your trip really well.
Unfortunately, having so much to see, there will be always the risk of losing time moving from one place to another due to a lack of planning, having to visit everything in a rush and ending your holiday more tired than when you started and with the sense of having missed many things.
A wise tourist, instead, will carefully prepare for the oncoming holiday by studying his must-see places and getting in touch with a guide to assist him.
Tuscany has three main airports that are located near the cities of Florence, Pisa and Grosseto and several local ones scattered all over the region. Apart from the main cities, that will be covered later, Tuscany has so many other little towns to be seen that it would be impossible to name all of them or you could sunbathe in one of the marvellous sandy or rocky beaches or walk through the beautiful landscape that inspired artists like Leonardo or Raffaello.
Tuscany was once divided into many rival cities that were competing among themselves for supremacy. This was not achieved only by arms but pride could be conquered by being a cultural beacon for the known world. Florence surely had a leading position during both the medioeval and the renaissance periods, thanks to its philanthropic rulers that hired the most capable artists. This wealth spent on arts generated many monuments that have been considered as the most beautiful and historically relevant in the whole world leading Florence to be declared as UNESCO Human Heritage Site. Many churches have been built with different styles and have been decorated by artists as Michelangelo, Brunelleschi and Donatello, just to name a few. Surely a city that has to be seen once in a lifetime.
Lucca has also been declared as UNESCO Human Heritage Site, due to its complete city walls that surround the old part of the town. It is known as the ”100 churches city” which can still be found in the old city center but even its countryside is famous for the beauty of its landscape and for the numerous villas that can be found.
Last but not least, near the airport you will find the beautiful town of Pisa, with its impossible Leaning Tower that seems to be falling even if it had been finished in the XV century. The suggestive Piazza dei Miracoli hosts the Cathedral and its Belfry (the Leaning Tower) both realized with precious white and coloured marbles. Even if the leaning Tower is the most famous one, Pisa has two other leaning towers to be discovered by the careful tourists with the help of their guide.
