Holiday Villas and Small Hotels in Tuscany

Tuscany in a week

Dear readers,

After some of you have asked me to give advice on routes to do in Tuscany, I have decided to post this article where I suggest you an itinerary for one week in Tuscany that will give you a chance to see some of the best places of our wonderful region. 

I will divide the itinerary by days but obviously depending on where you are in Tuscany routes there will be more comfortable one than others, depending on the distances per day.

1- Florence

Florence is the capital of Tuscany and an essential stop. To know what to do, you can read the following article regarding what to visit when you are in Florence for a day

2- Siena y San Gimignano

With their proximity those two cities are worth seeing together. In Siena, you should not miss to visit to wonderful Duomo (Cathedral of Siena) one of the most beautiful in Italy and therefore in the world. It is worth to go even if it costs 10 EUR because its beauty lies especially in the works of art that is inside of the cathedral. 

Another must see in Siena is the Piazza del Campo, the famous places where they organize the city festivals twice during the summer: The Palio. If you have time I would advise you to climb to the top of the Torre del Mangia from where you can admire one of the most beautiful panoramas of the city.

San Gimignano has its own article that you can find by clicking on the city’s name previously..

3-PienzaMontepulciano and Bagno Vignoni. 

Concerning these three locations that are very close at a geographic level, we have talked a lot too, for more information on each visit the links.


These two villages also deserve a visit, the first for their wineries and stunning Abbey Sant'Antimo a few kilometers from the village, and the second for its great Etruscan ruins.


The first is famous because the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" was filmed in Cortona and its international cultural festival "Tuscan Sun Festival" which takes place during the month of August, while Arezzo is famous for its beautiful churches and museums, and the scene of many of the scenes from the movie "La Vita e 'Bella".

6- Pisa y Lucca

The first is famous for the Leaning Tower and the second very famous for having some of the most beautiful places in Italy.

7- A walk through the Chianti: Castillo de Brolio , San Gusme , Tavernelle Val di Pesa

I hope that this itinerary will be of a great help in organizing your stay in Tuscany and will be useful to not miss any of the wonders of this area.

Kind regards,
