Located in central Italy, the region of Tuscany is synonymous with natural beauty, exquisite wine and food, and Etruscans, Roman and Renaissance masterpieces of art. If you're planning to stay in an apartment in Florence
, Tuscany's regional capital, try also to visit the rest of Tuscany, and stay in a rustic Tuscan farmhouse or apartment in any of its well-preserved medieval towns.
What are the best destinations to spend your holiday in Tuscany in? Here's a quick guide on some marvelous places not to miss including Bucine, San Gimignano and Siena.
Bucine Holiday Rentals
Bucine is located near Arrezo, the 6th most populous province in Tuscany. It's a hilly countryside with endless green landscapes from end to end where you can find villas, apartments and farmhouses.
Renting a villa in Bucine is an ideal experience for those who need a relaxing break "away from the city". Think gentle rolling hills, manicured vineyards and great walks.
San Gimignano apartments
San Gimignano is one of the most breathtaking small town destinations in Tuscany with its well-preserved hilltop towers that seem to reach the skies. This is a medieval walled city in Tuscany, half an hour south from Florence and most famous for its artistic heritage. Make sure you visit the Museo Archeologico
and do read our San Gimignano guide
before you leave home.
Accommodation in Siena
Siena's appeal is its fantastically well-preserved medieval architecture, its lively squares, delicious restaurants and of course the famous Palio event. The Palio
is a horse race held twice a year on the main piazza in Siena. Electrifying atmosphere and spirit of competition characterise this event that has been going on for centuries. Read our Siena apartment guide
