This week-long trip shows off two iconic images of Tuscany – the famous cathedral city of Florence and the swooping hills of the Tuscan countryside. Best of all, you can take your pick from a choice of character-packed hotels.
Travel to Florence by plane or train. Transfer to your chosen hotel and enjoy your first dinner in this grand Renaissance city.
You have a full day to explore Florence. The cathedral, Il Duomo, should be high on your to-see list. Renaissance treasure troves like the Uffizi Gallery and Galleria dell’Accademia are also must-sees.
To get the most out of your day, sign up to a Florence tour – they range from easy walking tours to market outings for foodies.
Today, you can pick up a hire car and head into the Tuscan countryside that surrounds Florence. Depending on where you’re headed, we could also arrange a private transfer or train travel.
Choose to stay in hilltop cities like Siena, Lucca or San Gimignano, or retreat to a tiny medieval hamlet like Pievescola. Not sure which place is right for you? Our Italy Experts can help you choose.
You’ve got four full days to explore the countryside. Or if you wish, spend time relaxing at your chosen hotel.
You could explore the Tuscan countryside by way of wine tastings or hop on a day trip to Pisa and its leaning tower.
It’s your last day in Tuscany, so enjoy a relaxed breakfast at your hotel. Afterwards, make your way back to the airport in time for your flight back to the UK.
