Below you will find links that lead to our city tour recommendations in Tuscany.
From the atmosphere of Tuscan old towns
In general, it is recommended that you find out about the surroundings of your holiday accommodation. All places in Tuscany have their own charm. On the one hand, this is due to the urban architecture; the Italians seem to have an innate sense for beautiful compositions of stones and surfaces, and also to the cheerful serenity in which life takes place in the piazza. For me it is always an uplifting experience to sit on some piazza, order a coffee and watch what is going on around me. The view of the house facades all around is pleasant, the coziness of the newspaper readers is calming, and the friendliness of the people you meet and who don't avoid a conversation is stimulating. It is no coincidence that Italian art and culture is world famous and can hardly be surpassed in terms of beauty and aesthetics. And it is not surprising that a small town in Tuscany, namely Massa Marittima, has dedicated itself to “slowing down”. Here everything is a little slower, less stressful and more humane. It's understandable that we as holidaymakers and guests feel particularly comfortable in such an atmosphere. A little tip: You have to see sights like the Leaning Tower of Pisa before. But dare to take a detour into one of the many side streets and immerse yourself in the Tuscan flair. Often you find yourself just a few meters away from the major sights, completely away from the tourist hustle and bustle, and small cafes and other localities invite you to have a coffee or a snack.
First recommendation: World Heritage Cities
If you are looking for perfect art and culture on your Tuscany vacation, then our first recommendation is the places those in the list of UNESCO were listed as world cultural heritage. This is an irrefutable reference for high-quality architecture, an unforgettable flair and unique architectural compositions of human genius. And if you don't have a taste for cultural achievements, then you will like any of the places suggested here, simply because of a beauty that you can take in and that will also make your soul sing.
