Italy boasts a plethora of beautiful regions, cities and locations, one of which is Tuscany. Tuscany, a region known for its beautiful landscapes, rich culture, history and artistic legacy, is located in the centre of Italy. Spread across the Apennines to the Tyrrhenian Sea, Tuscany has an area of roughly 23,000 square kilometres.
It is a great holiday destination for both families and couples. Tuscany is a place of leisure, pleasure and discovery, with plenty to see, do, eat and drink. Just look to the Tuscan pictures of olive groves, vineyards, picturesque hillsides, peaceful rivers and ancient villas to name a few.
Regarded as the birthplace of the renaissance, Tuscany holds many well-known museums such as the Uffizi and the Pitti Palace. With places such as Florence (the region capital), Pisa, Siena, Cortona, San Gimignano, Montepulciano and Lucca, you are guaranteed to have an adventure in Tuscany.
Or those of you wishing to escape for pure indulgence, why not visit Montecatini Terme, Italy’s destination most sought after for top spas? Vault Couture suggests staying at the Grand Hotel and La Pace, a luxury 5 star historical hotel, which is considered one of Montecatini Terme’s most elegant hotels.
For the wine connoisseurs reading, Tuscany produces several wines, including the well known Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Morellino di Scansano and Brunello di Montalcino. Make sure to indulge in these whilst on holiday in Tuscany!
Vault Couture suggests taking a trip to Tuscany from late September to early November and in spring, between April and May. The weather in Tuscany during these months is pleasant yet comfortable.
