Holidays to the Tuscan Riviera have been pretty much kept off the tourist trail. When you think of Tuscany, it's probably images of sunflower-filled meadows and undulating vineyards that spring to mind. But we're about to let you in on one big secret. This year - how do you fancy heading to one of Italy's most impressive coastlines?
Summer holidays to the Tuscan Riviera bag the best of both worlds. On the one hand you've got the chilled out duvet-soft sands where you can kick back and shake off the stresses of every day life. And on the other, you've got some of Italy's most gorgeous sights on your doorstep. So something for everyone – whether you want to take it easy or get snap happy with the camera.
Of course, most people who visit do come for the shimmering slices of sugar-soft sand that snake their way along the shores. Shake out your towel, don your shades Italian-style and then cool off in the turquoise waters. Bliss. If sitting still drives you to distraction though, there's plenty to keep you on your toes. You can melt some serious plastic on Tuscan Riviera holidays in the designer boutiques and oh so chic handbag stores. Or why not get cultured up to the max in jaw dropping jewels like Pisa and Siena?
Holidays in the Tuscan Riviera are also all about eating, eating and more eating. Being beside the seaside, you'll find succulent seafood and the fresh catches of the day on most menus – cooked simply yet bursting with flavour like only mamma could make! Make sure you tuck into all those aromatic pasta dishes too, as well as regional specialities such as the melt-in-the-mouth steak bistecca alla Fiorentina. Washed down with a glass of the famous Chianti wine, of course. Salute!
Whether you're seeking cheap holidays to the Tuscan Riviera on a budget, or want to plan your dream all inclusive getaway – you'll be longing to come back here long after you've shaken the sand from your suitcase. Just keep it under your sunhat, eh?
