Every city and town in the region has impressive natural and architectural beauty, so for those who want to know about art, nothing better than Florence, where they can walk through Ponte Vecchio at dusk or the Boboli Gardens surrounded by nature. For those who seek the charm of medieval villages, we recommend Lucignano, where you can spend a poetic weekend and get away from the routine. But Pienza also has magical streets that invite you to immerse yourself in the world of dreams and love. For those who need to relax, nothing better than a holiday rental near Chianciano Terme, Montecatini Terme and Bagni di Lucca, or the warm waters of Gruta Giusti. And if you prefer mountain and snow, Abetone is the most famous skiing resort in the region.Fabulous rentals and splendid outdoors

Travellers and activities
Tuscany is a destination known worldwide for its impressive monumental and artistic wealth, as well as for the historical ensembles of Pisa, Lucca, Florence and Siena. Although Livorno, Massa, Carrara, Arezzo, Grosseto, Prato and Pistoia, despite being much less known destinations, they also have numerous cultural attractions that are worth knowing. From the Etruscan era, the necropolis of Vetulonia, Sovana and Populonia are preserved, and the Roman colony stands out from the Roman era, one of the best preserved sites in the Roman Republic. But they are undoubtedly the most important medieval remains in this region, as emblematic places such as the historical centres of the cities of Florence, Pisa, Siena and Pienza, Piazza dei Miracoli and the Orcia Valley. In addition, in the surroundings of Florence and elsewhere in Tuscany we find some rural architectural complexes that were part of properties of the Medici family between the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries.Tuscany for romantic getaways
