Tuscany, Italy

Tuscany is located in central Italy and stretches from the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea. Its landscape, artisitic heritage and stand-out cities, the most famous among them Florence, make it an unquestioned international toursist destination.

Immerse yourself in the historic culture. Take a sightseeing tour from an experienced local guide through the rolling country hills, trek scenic hiking trails or take to the water and experience the city streets and architecture by boat. Learn from the best as you prepare some of the tastiest treats and wine pairings imaginable in an authentic Tuscan cooking class, or travel outside the hustle and bustle of the city on a Tuscany cheese and wine tour.

Think of spectacular medieval hillside towns and beautiful countryside, travel attractions including historic cities and art museums, Renaissance architecture and exceptional wine and food. If you are picturing all these things, you’re picturing Tuscany.

The main tourism season stretches from mid-April to the end of September with July and August being peak months. The best time to visit Tuscany is in the quieter part of the season, from April to June and from September to October when weather is typically good.
