Day Trips outside Florence – Tuscany private tours

Private excursions all over Tuscany: Pisa, Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano and Wine Tours

Tuscany is a postcard, this is the most famous region in Italy and a trip through its countryside is one of the must do things when in Florence. There are so many places to visit: art towns like Pisa and Lucca, Siena and San Gimignano, towns where enjoy a nice stroll looking around and enjoy the ambiance or sip a glass of wine while watching people go by.

Beside these bigger towns, ah don’t forget Arezzo and Pistoia they are not very famous but definitely worth visited in a day tour outside Florence, between these bigger towns there is  the Tuscan countryside where an invisible hand designed a perfect architecture of the landscape: rolling hills, farmhouses surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, tiny parishes and imposing castles together with charming villages like San Gimignano, Montalcino (famous for the Brunello wine), Pienza, Montepulciano, Cortona, and many many others.

A special mention deserves Carrara with its breathtaking marble mountains and the Cinque Terre (they are not in nothTuscany) easy reachable from Florence in a day trip.

 

Finally, a talk apart must be dedicated to the famous wine regions of Tuscany considered the world’s wine capital! The Chianti wine region stretches between Florence and Siena, further south of Siena there are the areas of Brunello di Montalcino and Nobile di Montepulciano. If you move south-west of Florence don’t miss the Bolgheri wine region where Ornellaia and Sassicaia wine are made. These are the most famous ones, but wherever your travel in Tuscany (like in the rest of Italy)  you will find awesome local wines like the areas of Lucca, Arezzo, Cinque Terre.
