Italy: Tuscany

“With its lyrical landscapes, world-class art and a superb cucina contadina (farmer’s kitchen), the Tuscan experience is perfectly in symbiosis with the land.” – Lonely Planet

The capital of Tuscany – where art meets food.

Chianti Region

Duomo Siena - Tuscany Italy

Siena

This UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of Tuscany’s main attractions and host to the Palio, a famed medieval horse race that happens twice a year and a huge bucket list item of mine. You’ll find beautiful cathedrals and churches, a large art collection and delve deeper into the Tuscan culture outside of Florence.

This charming medieval city of 101 churches also has the distinction of of being the only city walls completely accessible on foot. Rent a bike and spend a day or two here.

You’ve come this far, why not check out the famous leaning tower! If you have the time, Pisa makes a lovely half day trip but you won’t really need much more than that.  It’s cool to see in real life but I wouldn’t rank it particularly high on an Italy must-do list.
