The Tuscany area guide

Things to do

The culturally rich region of Tuscany is famed for its range of stunning vistas, villas and vino. As it is considered to be the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, it should come as little surprise that this region (one of 20 that make up Italy) is home to a rich cultural history – and stunning feats of art and architecture are never too hard to find here.

There are roughly 3.8million people residing in Tuscany – a figure that accounts for about 6.2% of the entire Italian population. The regional capital is the stunning city of Florence, where just over 380,000 people reside. This magnificent city has been rated as being one of the most beautiful on the planet – so those looking to relocate to a romantic destination should feel right at home here.

You will certainly find no shortage of things to do in this historic region of Italy. There are a large number of incredible ancient buildings to visit – such as the world-famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, as well as Il Duomo di Firenze. You would certainly be remiss to pass over any opportunity to take in these jaw-dropping feats of architecture.

Wine is another thing Tuscany is famous for. The Chianti region of Tuscany is home to a wine that shares the same name – and this rich red has put the region firmly on the winemaking map. In fact, this area has even earned itself the nickname Chiantishire, after the large number of British tourists who holiday there.

Places to eat

Don’t be fooled into thinking that wine is the only thing the Tuscans do well, though – as food plays an incredibly important part in the lives of those people who reside in the region. Regardless of where you decide to settle in this picturesque part of the country, you will never be too far from a fantastic restaurant or two.

When it comes to Tuscan cuisine, simplicity is key. Many classic Tuscan dishes are based around legumes, bread, cheese, vegetables, olive oil and meat – most notably beef and pork. All restaurants in the region serve up their own delicious interpretations of local favourites and no two dining experiences will ever be quite the same.

Restaurants that are well worth a visit include Osteria Cassia Vetus and Il Canto del Maggio – both of which can be found in the settlement of Terranuova Bracciolini. The former specialises in dishes fashioned out of locally sourced produce and Slow Food-endorsed ingredients and is guaranteed to leave you wanting more. The latter sits atop a hilltop hamlet and offers beautiful views out over the Arno Valley, as well as mouth-watering food.

Shopping

Avid shoppers will certainly not find themselves limited in terms of choice in Tuscany. The region is home to a number of malls, shopping centres and high fashion retailers from which all of the latest trends can be purchased.

The Centro Commerciale I Gigli is the largest shopping centre in Tuscany and is home to more than 130 shops. These include premium brands such as Zara, Apple, Hollister and more. I Gigli is located in Campi Bisenzio – just on the outskirts of Florence.

There are also a number of high fashion outlets dotted around Tuscany, offering brands from famous design houses such as Gucci, Giorgio Armani, Alexander McQueen and more. One such outlet is The Mall – which can be found in the Reggello province, to the south-east of Florence.

Getting there & around

Air travel is likely to be the most popular way of reaching Tuscany from the UK. The region is home to two international airports – the Galileo Galilei International Airport in the city of Pisa and Amerigo Vespucci Airport (also known as Peretola) in the regional capital of Florence.

All of the main Tuscan cities are connected to one another by railroad, so once you arrive in the region you will never find it hard to travel from place to place. If you fancy taking the slow route, there are also a number of intercity coach services available to take you from settlement to settlement.
