Whether you have three days or three weeks, Tuscany is a wonderful destination. Travelers short on time should focus their energy on Florence and the wine region of Chianti, while with a few more days you can add day trips to medieval towns such as Siena and San Gimignano.
What is the best location to stay in Florence?
For first time visitors and those who have only a short time in Florence the heart of the historic center is usually the most convenient place to stay. We suggest staying in the area around Piazza della Signoria or Duomo.
Are Florence and Tuscany kid friendly?
Yes! Florence is an open-air museum perfect for a living history lesson. Stunning hilltop villages, fairytale scenery, cultural highlights, and food to die for make Tuscany a great child-friendly holiday destination in Italy.
Best time to visit Florence?
With its wealth of art and museums, the attractive capital city of Tuscany is beautiful all year round but there are times of the year when it is even more alluring! The right months for natural beauty and blossoming are from March to May. June is perfect because there is the feast of San Giovanni with the fires and the historic football games with the costume parade! September and October are also beautiful for visiting the surrounding hill towns in the Tuscan countryside. While in winter, it is a pleasure to visit museums and churches without the crowds!
