A b&b (bed and breakfast) is a small lodging establishment that offers overnight accommodation and breakfast, but usually does not offer other meals. Typically, bed and breakfasts are private homes with fewer than 10 bedrooms.
Tuscany is the land of hospitality. Enjoy your stay as much as possible in one ofItaly's most beautiful locations, thanks to the comfort and convenience of bed & breakfast: a stay in a B&B lets you appreciate not just the beautiful scenery of the area, but also get to know the traditions and secrets of the place, thanks to the hospitality and willingness to please of the local people.
Have a great holiday in Tuscany, Italy.
Tuscany is especially known for the works of art present in its cities and for the beauty of its landscape. Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca, Pistoia, Prato,Massa, Arezzo, Grosseto, Livorno are the capitals of the provinces.
How to get there
Getting to Tuscany is easy thanks to the excellent connections that the region enjoys. The airport system includes the main airports of Florence andPisa, with national, European and international flights. Tuscany is crossed from the north to south by the A1 motorway. Florence is connected to the Tuscan coast thanks to the A11. Important roads are the A12 (from Pisa to Genova to the north and Livorno to Rosignano Marittimo to the south) and the A15 that crosses the north-west extremity of the region, the Lunigiana. As well as the motorways, we find great communication roads and historical axis roads such as the Via Aurelia, Via Cassia and the Via Clodia. The main railway line is the Milan-Rome line that from north to south touches the Tuscan cities of Prato, Florence and Arezzo. There are numerous ports, even touristic ones. From the ports of Piombino and Livorno ships set sail for Corsica, Sardinia, Elba and the numerous islands of the Tuscan archipelago.
The territory is very varied and richly coloured, with a continuous rolling of green and fertile hills like those of the Chianti, often dominated by the undulating ridges of the Apennines and by the summits of the Apuan Alps. Mount Amiata, an ancient and now extinct volcano, stands out between the provinces of Siena and Grosseto; the Metalliferous Hills (where is Colli di Travale) separate the inland Pisano area of the Maremma in the south; the Pisan Mounts stand out between Pisa and Lucca, and the Pratomagno, almost completely surrounded by the Arno River, divides the Apennine part of the Arezzo area, the Casentino, from the Higher Florentine Valdarno. And finally, Mount Cetona rises at the south-west extremity of the province of Siena, separating the Val d’Orcia from the Val di Chiana. The Arno is the most important river. The plains are mainly in the southern central area. The coastline is more than 300 km long and presents rocky coasts and headlands alternated with long stretches of beaches decorated with pinewoods. The 300 sq.km of the archipelago’s islands also make up part of the territory.
What does it offer?
Florence alone would be enough to promote this region as one of the most-loved destinations by tourists throughout the world. But Tuscany also means Siena with its Piazza del Campo and the legendary Palio; Pisa with her Leaning Tower and the Baptistery; Arezzo with her Parish of St. Mary; Livorno with its old fortress; Lucca with her historical walls; Chianti with her sweetness and the traditional viticulture. Also extremely fascinating is the so-called Minor Tuscany, scattered with little villages of a medieval atmosphere: San Gimignano, Fiesole, Volterra and Montepulciano. Pienza, daughter of the Renaissance, the historically rich beaches of the Versilia, the unique natural jewels of the Elba Island and of the entire Tuscan archipelago. Without forgetting the coasts of the Argentario or the wild heart of the Maremma, rich with agritourism resorts. For fitness lovers, on the other hand, are massages and treatments among the hot waters of the spas of Saturnia (Grosseto) or those of Montecatini (Pistoia), to regenerate both mind and body.
