Tuscany is quintessential and timeless Italy, with a greater density of antiquarian sites than anywhere else on earth. And despite its popularity it remains largely unspoiled. This was the beloved homeland of Galileo, Dante and Machiavelli. And it was here that Michelangelo, Donatello and Leonardo da Vinci lived and worked.
You can choose to explore all the best of the countryside and classic cities on our Highlights of Tuscany guided walking holiday. Independent cycling or walking options are in the classic Tuscan countryside of the Siena province or the comparatively unknown and totally unspoiled Mugello.
