Visit Accessible Tuscany

21 April 2017

Tuscany is a region based in central Italy, which is famous for its landscapes, traditions, history, artistic legacy, its influence on high culture and the local Tuscan wines. It's often referred to as "a national within a nation" and it's also one of the most popular destinations in the world.

Florence, Pisa, Montecatini Terme, Castiglione della Pescaia and Grosseto are the main destinations to visit however if you want to experience the other face of Tuscany then the small towns, villages, beaches, castles, villas and vineyards make a welcome change from the traffic and noise of some of the larger Tuscan cities.

 Florence and Siena are the two main cities within Tuscany that you can book fully accessible accommodation. These lovely cities are steeped in history and art where you could visit the Florence Cathedral, Piazzale Michelangelo and Uffizi Gallery in Florence and/or the Piazza del Campo, Siena Cathedral and Biblioteca Piccolomini in Siena.

Whilst the accommodation will either be in Florence or Siena, there is plenty more to see and do in Tuscany. The views and scenery in Tuscany are absolutely breathtaking, so wherever you're planning on visiting, you'll encounter the beauty of the Tuscan countryside which includes some beautiful vineyards that we'd recommend visiting.

Tuscany Scenery

 

Whilst Tuscany is not usually thought of as a beach destination, it'll take about 1hr 30mins to travel to the 250 mile stretch of stunning coastline of Tuscany from Florence and Siena. We can arrange private excursions for you which could include a trip to the beach, which you can take in all of the scenery on the way - anything you want to do, we can arrange it for you.

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is probably the biggest attraction in Tuscany, it's a freestanding bell tower, of the cathedral of the Italian city of Pisa, known worldwide for its unintended tilt which happened during construction in 1372. This is the perfect opportunity to treat yourself to some gelato or eating in one of the local restaurants, where you can admire the structural brilliance of the tower.
