Rolling hills and Renaissance art – all washed down with a nice glass of Chianti. It’s all yours for the taking with our flights to Tuscany.
Everything about Tuscany is ‘bello’. Take the scenery. A patchwork of wheat fields, poppy meadows and vineyards, it looks like the handiwork of an Impressionist painter. Likewise, its Medieval hill towns are ridiculously pretty, with San Gimignano arguably the fairest of them all. But the knockout blow comes courtesy of Tuscany’s ‘big three’ – Florence, Pisa and Siena. All fountains and frescoes, this trio is the Renaissance in bricks and mortar. As well as sublime cities and countryside, flights to Tuscany offer up a Fifties-glam beach scene, food straight out of nonna’s kitchen and the sort of wine list that’d get Oz Clarke waxing lyrical.
Tuscany Top 5
POP on your Gucci shades and hotfoot it down to chi-chi Forte dei Marmi, the most exclusive beach resort on the Tuscan Riviera.
SHOP for bling along the Ponte Vecchio. Florence’s famous pastel-painted bridge bulges with goldsmith workshops and jewellery stores.
ORDER ‘bistecca alla Fiorentina’ – a thick slab of herb-infused sirloin that gets a brief encounter with a grill before being drizzled with olive oil and spritzed with lemon.
POUR yourself another glass of Prosecco at one of the watering holes that front Viareggio’s stylish seafront promenade.
SCALE the heights of Pisa’s architectural mishap, the Leaning Tower, for a bird’s eye view of the city. And don’t miss the cathedral and baptistery that sit next to the wonky wonder.
