There are so many places to visit in Tuscany at Easter and during the whole Spring season that you could lose your mind. Fortunately, there is our guide that will help you easily choose your favorite destination!

Spring Holidays in Tuscany

Tuscany is a wonderful region to discover especially with the beautiful season.

This magical land offers an infinity of beautiful natural landscapes. The most famous and well-known in the world are those of the Val d’Orcia, Chianti area and the hills around Florence.

But we must also remember the Maremma with its wide Natural Park, the promontory of Monte Argentario with the Orbetello lagoon, the islands of the Tuscan Archipelago with Elba and Giglio islands.

And then the Casentino and the National Park of the “Foreste Casentinesi”, the beautiful coast of Versilia, and the green Mugello near Florence.

For lovers of walking, one of the must-see spring routes in Tuscany is certainly the famous Via Francigena, the pilgrims’ route that in the Middle Ages joined the English town of Canterbury with Rome. The Tuscan stretch of the Francigena passes from the Passo della Cisa to the Acquapendente, an evocative route that crosses a beautiful countryside and beautiful villages.

Tuscany is a paradise for lovers of good food and good wine. Its lands are famous for red wine such as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. On the hills Chianti wine tours are organized with visits to the vineyards and to the historic cellars, accompanied by special tastings.

Typical dishes include Ribollita, Pici (big handmade spaghetti), Cacciucco, Acquacotta, Fiorentina steak, many other dishes based on meat and legumes, Lampredotto’s sandwich. Dishes to be tasted in the typical restaurants, in the farmhouses scattered in the beautiful Tuscan countryside and in the taverns of the historic centers or medieval villages.

Tuscany is also a territory where you can practice many sports. The main activities are hiking, walking, cycling, but also on horseback, for ancient country paths, parks and natural areas, forests and scenic roads on the sea.
