With so much in one place, it is easy to see why Florence attracts such as wide number of visitors each and every year.

Pisa

 

 

 

Straddling over the River Arno just before it empties into the Turrhenian Sea is Pisa. 

It is most famously known for its Leaning Tower (the bell tower of the city's cathedral) which was an architectural project gone terribly wrong.  

It also contains more than 20 other historic churches, several medieval palaces and various bridges across the River Arno.

This city is very lively with locals as well as tourists. 

Everywhere you turn here, you will discover a new story that Pisa has to offer. 

 

Pecciolo

Whilst it may be one of the smaller towns in Tuscany, Pecciolo is still a great place to have on your list of places to visit.

It is home to some beautiful and historical buildings, including the Pieve di San Varano which is thought to date back to the 12th Century.

However, Pecciolo is also bang up to date too. With the amazing high rope challenge Pecciolo Avventura, which is great fun for kids and those who are young at heart too!

Arezzo

 

 

 

Known for its great tradition in gold-smithery.

Arezzo is a wealthy city sitting proudly on top of a hill in Tuscany.

Surrounded by valleys, it is a beautiful and scenic city that has plenty to offer its visitors.

That said, it is definitely a much quieter place to head to than Florence.

Perfect for those looking for a place that is a little more off the beaten track.

The feeling that you get when you are in Arezzo is one of a time gone by, the buildings are all in a classic style and are beautifully designed and built.

Some of the must see are the Cathedral and the Medici Fortress.

However, that isn’t all that you will find in this wonderful city.

Gavorrano

A mountain side town, Gavorrano overlooks the surrounding area, providing astounding views.

Although, you shouldn’t underestimate the beauty of Gavorrano itself.

Whilst it has stayed close to its roots, Gavorrano is now a cultured mix of heritage and artistic flair.

The stone houses line the streets, and you may even find a twisting vine or two.

The picture perfect Tuscan town if you ever saw one.
