Itinerary

Days 1-2 Pisa

Begin the Tuscan adventure in the home of the Leaning Tower, an architectural oddity that seems to defy gravity. Find out why it leans and perhaps climb its stairs for a different perspective. After spending time marvelling at the tower, be sure to explore the other sights in Pisa city including the Campo dei Miracoli - the Baptistry, Camposanto and Duomo are all located here and well worth a visit. In free time, a day trip to Lucca is highly recommended. This charming walled city has many fine museums, cobbled piazzas, chic boutiques and gorgeous cafes that are worth exploring.

Days 3-4 Siena

Travel to one of Tuscany's most captivating cities. While its rival, Florence, bloomed during the Renaissance, Siena's striking architecture is strictly Gothic. Admire the frescoes in the Duomo, enjoy an aperitivo in the Piazza del Campo and catch sweeping views of the surrounding countryside while roaming Siena's meandering streets. Spend a day in delightful San Gimignano and sip on the local tipple during a winery visit in the famous wine region of Chianti. And, with Italy growing more than 2,000 varieties of grapes, there is sure to be a wine for every taste!

Days 5-7 Florence

Florence is renowned for being the cultural heart of Tuscany as it bursts with religious treasures and Renaissance masterpieces. It has been said that during the second millennium, a third of Europe's most important artists lived in Florence. With that in mind, don't miss visiting the Uffizi Gallery, home to artworks by Botticelli, Caravaggio and Raphael and widely considered to be one of the finest galleries in the world. Follow the crowds up to Piazzale Michelangelo to catch the sun's last rays as it sets over the city - the perfect way to end an enchanting tour of Tuscany.
