Tuscan Spring Getaway

The Tuscan region is one of the most important tourist centres in the world. Delicious local cuisine and famous wine top beautiful countryside and historic sites as well as fine art museums. Spring is the best time to visit Tuscany: you will avoid tourist crowds, high season prices, and hot weather. Choose Pisa airport, a hub for low-cost airlines, get your car hire, and make the most of your stay in the region – the choice is vast.

Enjoy the Mediterranean spring to the fullest. Head to the hilly countryside, home to vineyards and residences. Try out local specialities such as Tuscan bread Focaccia – salty flat bread – perfect for lunch. The remarkable views are awaiting you in Park of Migliarino – a regional park covering around 24,000 ha of the sea coast from Viareggio and Livorno. The park boasts a variety of natural landscape, and is home to sandy dunes, diverse bird species, woods, and wetlands.

If you are more of an art fan, choose Florence. The city shows off numerous art museums with the works of Renaissance artists such as Michelangelo or Botticelli, to name just a few. Here, you will have the opportunity to see Michelangelo’s David and the works of Leonardo da Vinci! Florence itself is an open-air museum with numerous historic buildings.

One cannot miss to visit Pisa while in Tuscany. The famous Lowering Tower of Pisa sits in the centre of the city surrounded by other architectural gems. Local restaurants offer delicious cuisine. Try out Tuscan flavours and wine – a perfect way to spend an afternoon. Additionally, not so far away, in Viareggio, you will find some of the best sandy beaches in the area, if you feel like soaking up some spring sun by the Tyrrhenian Sea. There is much more to see and do in the region, both for a longer or shorter stay!
