Luxury Tuscany Holidays

Glittering Renaissance cities, medieval hilltop castles, and rolling valley vineyards

Tuscany

Tuscany conjures up images of rolling green landscapes, historic golden towns, and some of Italy’s best cities. It’s also home to a beautiful coastline where you can spend days on the beach, enjoying seafood and the relaxed atmosphere of the area. Couples will love the architecture and quiet landscapes, as well as pretty towns, while families will find activities like cycling, horse riding, and watersports.

When it comes to choosing where to stay in Tuscany, there are some fantastic options. Stay in Castelnuovo Berardenga for emerald green vineyards, 16th Century villas and rolling green hills which are crossed by tree lined roads. Alternatively, choose Pievescola which is surrounded by beautiful rural landscapes and home to a variety of local restaurants serving delicious cuisine. Both towns offer the opportunity to immerse yourself in the serenity of the landscapes, wander through historic streets and try some local delicacies.

Destinations in Tuscany
Pievescola

Pievescola might be small, but its luxury credentials are mighty. Renaissance villas double as designer hotels and the local restaurant features in the Michelin Guide.

Castelnuovo Berardenga

The Tuscan countryside is your oyster from Castelnuovo Berardenga. This Sienese comune sprinkles historic hamlets over a hilly patchwork of sunflower fields and Chianti vineyards.

Flight Information

The best airports for Tuscany are Florence and Pisa. Direct flights from the UK take approximately two hours. 

When to go

Tuscany is a mild-weathered place. Temperatures meander between 20°C and 25°C in the warmest months of July and August. July is also usually the driest month of the year. Autumn is light jacket weather (around 17°C in September), while spring is crisper – think 10°C to 15°C.

Tuscany has a calendar full of festivals. Museums and shops shut early on Easter weekend so that locals can join the processions and Passion Plays that pop up throughout the region. Spring also kicks off a long line-up of food events that last till autumn. September is harvest time, so that’s when wine festivals really get into their stride.

Visa Information

British citizens do not currently require a visa to visit Italy.

Tipping

When you dine out in Italy, you will generally be charged a coperto (cover charge), which is for the bread, tablecloth, cutlery, etc. Tipping in Italy is not customary, but is always appreciated.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Italy is Italian. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
