Holiday in Tuscany

Tuscany is a fantastic part of Italy to choose for your next holiday. With so much to see and do, the biggest problem you’ll have to face will be deciding what to do first! From cities of art and culture, to the Chianti Vineyards, from the cosmopolitan beach resorts to holding up the leaning tower of Pisa, the beautiful, eclectic area of Tuscany in Italy offers it all

The seaside resort of Viareggio its very popular with Italians and fairly untouched by tourism from outside Italy, so you really know you are abroad. There are no fish and chips on offer here, but there are plenty of fabulous Italian cuisine fish dishes being a speciality. Most of the beaches in Viareggio are private, so are very well-kept. The area of Viareggio is also famous for the composer Puccini and in August they perform one of his operas at the lake side, outside his house - a must for any opera lovers!

Of course the most famous city in this area is Florence. Seeped in art history and home to the Uffizi museum, where the famous statue of David stands guard, join the well-dressed Florentines as you take a stroll over the Ponte Vecchio, admiring the jewellery. Take a walk through the beautiful Boboli gardens, with their ornamental lakes and palazzo. Art, history, shops and restaurants - this city really does offer something for everyone.
