Tuscany Travel Tips
Today I am giving a little bit of advice on the main topics I consider important when organizing a trip to Tuscany:
The route of your holiday is by far the most important decision and I have received numerous emails asking for more advice. I published a blog yesterday about a route in Southern Tuscany and have previously blogged about hiking and cycling tours through Tuscany.
Listed below are some blogs which I think will be a helpful read:
Routesof Tuscany: An item where you can find details of routes through Northern and Southern Tuscany.
TheTuscany itineraries: A blog page written by myself and with contributions from readers.
Sylvia'strip to Tuscany: The story of my friend Sylvia´s trip to Tuscany a few years ago. She spent months travelling through Tuscany and together we have written an interesting tale of her time, which I highly recommend.
I don´t usually discuss accommodation but I have received lots of readers comments on great places to stay and have posed some in the Blogs.
An article I published discussing different types of accommodation will also help you decide where to stay.
Tuscany is renowned as a region that specialises in agriturismo. Tourism which connects the traveller with the land and people of the country visited. Usually this involves family run private houses with pools, splendid garden apartments or quaint rural hotels. Thus, giving guests a personal and intimate connection to this great region- something which is unsurpassable!

Restaurants are another important part of a trip to Tuscany and a great way to sample the local cuisine. Various bloggers and I have written a short guide on our experiences and recommendations of restaurants in the region. We hope to have detailed a great guide of local and unknown restaurants, as we know the area well and can steer you away from major tourist spots.

I advise you to check ahead of time the current opening times of the restaurants.
The information below is just a little extra that I feel is helpful in added a touch of sparkle to your trip:
