Arrive in Florence, check in to your hotel, and spend your first day getting on Tuscan time. We recommend classic bistecca Fiorentina (Florentine steak) with a glass of Chianti for dinner; dine at your hotel or a local restaurant and soak up the sights of the city’s famous skyline.

Days 2-3 : Florence
This romantic Renaissance city in the heart of the Tuscan countryside is home to some of Italy’s most famous sights. It’s a surprisingly small city, with a concentrated dose of culture, cuisine and chic shopping. Your days in Florence can be spent touring the world-famous Uffizi Galleries, or scaling the steps of the city’s iconic Duomo, all of which can be done on our Walking Tour of Florence. Florence is a wonderful place to experience the Italian art of aperitivo; early-evening wine and socialising with a light bite to eat.

Day 4 : Florence – Tuscany Coast
On day four, it’s time to check out of your hotel and leave the city for the beautiful Tuscany Coast – the transfer takes about an hour and a half. Now’s the time to relax; get to the coast in enough time to see in the sunset with a glass of wine.

Tuscany, Tuscany Coast
Days 5-10 : Tuscany Coast
The Tuscany Coast is home to some of the best beaches in Italy – nearly 250 miles of them. Many of them are Blue Flag-awarded, with huge stretches of fine golden sand backed by glamorous waterfront promenades, with unspoilt countryside in the distance. If you’re keen to see as many as possible, hire a car to explore the coast. We recommend beautiful Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio’s six miles of sand. 

As well as enjoying the beaches, reserve a couple of days for excursions. Plan in a day trip to the beautiful city of Pisa (less than an hour from the coast), famous for its Leaning Tower. If you fancy yourself a foodie or wine buff, you’re at the gateway to one of Italy’s finest food and wine regions, so you can always bolt on a vineyard tour in Chianti. Tuscany Coast is not the only coastline vying for the most beautiful spot in Italy, however; Just north of the Tuscan Coast is Liguria, full of quaint towns including Portofino which is renowned for its celebrity visits and postcard-perfect views. Take this opportunity to live the high life for yourself on our Portofino Tour.
