Holidays to Tuscany, Italy

Activity and adventure Holidays in Tuscany with Exodus, the adventure travel experts.

The Italian powerhouse region of Tuscany, home to world-renown cities such as Florence, Pisa, Siena and San Gimignano, more than lives up to the hype. Sun baked villages, soul-stirring, picture-perfect countryside and a wealth of Renaissance treasures, along with some of the finest Iocal produce and wines in the country make this an unforgttable region which lays claim to offer the best of everything Italian. Being this perfect does has its downside – the coach-loads of tourists that descend in their droves every summer. Fortunately for the more adventurous, they stick to a well-trodden path, which leaves the rest of this delightful region free for us to explore!

Four Tuscan Treasures

1 Uncover hidden Tuscany

The best way to discover the heart of rural Tuscany is to get out into the countryside. The striking scenery and traditional way of life are best uncovered on foot or by bicycle. It is a timeless rolling landscape of fertile agricultural land, ancient woodland, olive groves, volcanic lakes and narrow valleys.

The Garfagnana is one of Italy’s best-kept secrets. Isolated between the Alpi Apuane and the Apennine mountain ranges, hilltop villages and chestnut forests cover the striking landscape. It’s another side to Tuscany, and one that you won’t have to share with the hordes of holidaymakers.

2 Find yourself in Renaissance Florence

There are some places where it’s impossible to avoid the crowds. But would you miss the captivating capital of Italian art and culture for the sake of a few people? Atmospheric and elegant, Florence is renowned for world-class art galleries and striking architecture. Do not miss the sunset view from the Piazza Michelangelo. Gaze across the city skyscape of domes, towers and bridges as the sun drops down into the hazy hills beyond.

3 Soak up Siena

Where Florence is rich with regal renaissance, Siena oozes gothic charm. The mediaeval centre buzzes; alleyways and backstreets take unexpected turns unearthing small restaurants and cafes serving the best that rustic Tuscany has to offer.

4 Cinque Terre

Not technically Tuscany but in the neighbouring region of Liguria, this cluster of tiny fishing villages clinging to the mountainside in some of Italy’s most extraordinary countryside is close enough for a visit! Now a UNESCO world heritage site, you can’t reach these villages by road – it has to be on foot or by train. Take a well-earned break from walking the cliff top paths at Vernazza’s fishing harbour, a beautiful piazza right on the water.
