Villa la Tavernaccia is located at the best place for visiting Tuscany, eight kilometers away from the center of Florence. Near San Casciano Val di Pesa, a lovely burg in the Chianti countryside, you can reach almost all the major Tuscan attractions for a day trip.
Florence is a living museum with magnificent architecture and priceless artworks, dubbed as the “Cradle of the Renaissance” for its cultural hegemony during that time. As a UNESCO World Heritage Site, every tour by foot is a delightful surprise.
Since Etruscan time, these emerald-green hills are covered with rows of grapes, low lying forests, and breath-taking vistas. The Chianti Region offers a multitude of itineraries through quaint hamlets, typical little Tuscan towns, and extensive vineyards.
Siena is a magical place, as rich in history and art as Florence, with a vibrant local culture with its roots in medieval times. Home of the famous Palio di Siena, the ancient race that takes place twice every summer, the city is a jewel that should be visited at all costs.
While the Leaning Tower is undoubtedly the primary attraction, Pisa is more than its Piazza dei Miracoli. Enjoy a walk along the Arno river and explore the numerous, lively streets and squares full to the brim with richly decorated palaces and beautiful sights.
Lucca welcomes the visitor with its stunning 4-km-long circular wall, still intact after centuries of expert renovations. Because the historic center was so well protected, Lucca has managed to preserve its heritage convincingly. While beautiful, Lucca is far from a simple open-air museum: the city hosts the biggest comics fair in Europe and one of the most influential summer music festivals in Italy.
San Gimignano is a small walled village right between Florence and Siena. Famous for its medieval architecture and numerous towers, it’s one of the best-preserved towns in Tuscany. San Gimignano is also a food mecca, and produces delicious white wine, the Vernaccia.
The Versilia is the Tuscan coast region widely known for the fashionable resorts along its Riviera, with numerous night clubs attracting visitors for its active nightlife during the summer. During the day, with its sandy beaches and shallow waters, it’s a perfect place for families with small kids.
Val d’Orcia is a valley so beautiful it’s moving, even for the locals. This area of Tuscany boasts of endless rolling hills covered with grain, sunflowers, and vineyards that produce the world-renown wines such as Brunello. The small picturesque towns like Pienza and Montalcino are an obligatory stop, at least for a glass of wine and a stroll in their charming streets.
The five villages of the Cinque Terre are a well-preserved treasure of the eastern end of the Italian Riviera, with typical architecture and a network of stunning coastal and mountain trails.
With more than 50 kilometers of ski slopes of varying difficulty and dozens of hiking trails surrounded by nature, Abetone is the favorite mountain destination in Tuscany (and beyond).
There is nothing better in the world than getting lost in the smaller canals of Venice, stopping for a coffee in a typical bar before immersing yourself in the beauty of landmarks such as Saint Mark's Basilica or the Rialto Bridge.
Rome has been a major human settlement for more than 2000 years, and it shows. Walking through its streets means retracing the history of western culture to the present day, surrounded by majestic and timeless architecture.
