Planning Your Visit
How many days to spend in Tuscany?
Tuscany is not a region to visit for the weekend. Plan to spend 1-3 days in Florence, Siena and Pisa each, then drive to the coast and take a ferry to one of the islands for the beaches. After 10 days in Tuscany, you’ll really be feeling la dolce vita.
What to wear?
Wear layers, as the sun is hot during the day and it can get quite cool in the evenings. You should be comfortable and casual; this is the countryside after all. Pack light—one formal dress or shirt is enough.
How to get around Tuscany?
Only renting a car will give you the full ability to explore the natural beauty and historic quality of the region, from vineyards to palaces. Be sure to request an automatic if you’re used to driving it, as most Italians drive stick shift. Of course, bike tours through Tuscany are a lovely alternative.

What people are saying about Tuscany
This tour is awesome! It starts with some walking to a church in Sienna with a tour guide from the city (we were blessed to have a touring legend from Sienna give us a tour). The bus ride is smooth and they have water available if needed (which we took advantage of). The vineyard tour and wine tasting was great, and the food? To die for! We purchased 6 bottles of wine after the tour ended haha (they ship if you prefer that, we just took them with us). Our day ended with a quick trip to pisa to see the leaning tower. Great tour, awesome value, and our guide Manolo is the best tour guide we EVER HAD!
MANOLO OUR TOUR GUIDE IS AMAZING!!!!!! The bus ride was smooth and air conditioned. The multiple options for travel or not to hike or food was perfect for us as we wanted to walk as little as possible in the heat. Bring your swimwear if you want to dip into the water! I can’t talk much about the hike as we opted out, but do OPT IN FOR THE LUNCH! it was great food that’s served fast. Definitely do this tour if you can!
Constantine was AMAZING! So funny and knowledgeable. The wineries were beautiful and the wine was even better. They had snacks to pair with the tasting as well. Raul was an expert driver and navigated the incredibly windy roads with ease. Members of our group were prone to getting car sick and didn’t have a problem at all. Would absolutely recommend!
This was an ideal way to see Cinque Terre in a day—our guide was knowledgeable and offered great recommendations to personalize for our family. We appreciated that the transportation was spotless and comfortable for the 2 hour trip from Florence. Highly recommend and would book other private tours through the service.
Had a great experience with the Tuscan tour. I wish they did a seperate package that left out pisa but gave more time at Siena and San gimiano instead. Our guide Elisa was very helpful and friendly. Totally recommend this experience to anyone in Florence.
