    Pocket Guide: Tuscany

    Tuscany is one of those holiday destinations, which you only have to mention and everyone around you swoons. Think rolling green countryside, fields of vineyards and olive groves, elegant cities filled with Renaissance art and Gothic architecture, and a stunning coastline. Tuscany sits in the western central part of Italy’s boot, lying just above the Lazio region and Rome.

    Hotels in Tuscany: Tuscan Farm Houses to Former Palaces

    There is a wide range of places to stay in Tuscany, from bed and breakfasts in charming old farmhouses to luxurious palaces, sleek modern city pads and budget guesthouses. You can also choose between independent hotels and well-known chains, depending on where you choose to base yourself. Whether you’re looking for a country retreat, a beach holiday or a city break, you’re sure to find an area of Tuscany that suits.

    Florence and Tuscany’s Highlights

    One of Tuscany’s undisputed highlights is the Renaissance city of Florence, home to such treasures as Michelangelo’s David, the magnificent Il Duomo cathedral, the Uffizi Gallery and the Palazzo Vecchio. It’s a truly elegant city where terracotta vistas sit side by side with Renaissance beauty and grand piazzas. It’s also famous for its Florentine T-bone steak, fashion outlets and outdoor leather markets.

    Another celebrated Tuscan sight not to miss is the charming town of Pisa and its famous Leaning Tower, not far from the coast. Construction on the tower began in 1173 and it currently leans at approximately 3.99 degrees. Like Pisa, the city of Siena is another favourite Tuscan destination. The UNESCO World Heritage city is well known for its Medieval centre and magnificent Gothic architecture. Sights to look out for include the Duomo, one of the finest examples of Italian Gothic cathedrals, and the celebrated Museo Civico, whose walls are festooned with brightly coloured frescoes.

    Discovering Tuscan Cuisine

    Tuscany, like many parts of Italy, is known for its delicious cuisine. Think less of the typical pizza, lasagne and spaghetti and instead try Florentine T-bone steak, tomato soup with crispy bread, cold bread salad and Tuscan bean stew. One of the best places to try many of these dishes is Tuscany’s Chianti region, an area famous for its picturesque vineyards and rolling hills of olive groves. Chianti is also one of the most celebrated wine regions in the world and sits between the historic cities of Siena and Florence.

    Tuscany is not all about fine cities and countryside, however, it’s also a great destination for a beach break. You can find some of the best beaches around Maremma, the Migliarino-San Rossore and the resort of Castiglione della Pescaia. Think rocky sheltered coves, hidden sandy beaches and warm turquoise waters. The rugged island of Monte Argentario, a small peninsula lying about 100 miles south of Florence, also has some of the region’s best sandy beaches. With all this to discover and more, it’s no wonder that Tuscany is one of Italy’s most famous regions and a favourite among holidaymakers around the world.

    "Professional Handling of a Problem"
    We arrived at ten pm to find the hotel was full & they had mixed up our booking & had us checking in the next night for 3 days ( their error). However, the hotel staff person quickly rectified the situation by booking us into a suite at another of their hotels 4 k away & sending us there at their expense by taxi where we were treated very well. We returned to Michelangelo the next am again by cab to a room upgrade where a fruit basket & letter of apology awaited us, very much appreciated by my husband & me. We go to Florence often on business & would not hesitate to stay here.

    Grand Hotel Baglioni

    Piazza Unita Italiana 6, Florence - Map
    "Oozing class and sophistication"
    We have just returned from a superb long weekend in Florence. The Baglioni very much contributed to our enjoyment. Stylish, historic and grand in every sense, it more than lived up to our expectations. The location is perfect, close to transport links and within a short walk of the awe inspiring sites on offer in what must rank as one of the just see destinations on the planet. We benefitted from an upgrade and our recently upgraded room was sumptuous in every respect. Everyone of the staff, from reception, bar, restaurant, housekeeping and concierge were attentive, friendly and welcoming at all times and matched the Baglioni's old world class and charm. The rooftop terrace is the highlight, with the Duomo looking close enough to touch. If I am lucky enough to return to Florence (I rubbed the nose of the bronze boar so, legend has it, I will) I will try very hard to make the Baglioni my home once again. Magnificent.

    "Excellent location"
    There are no services like washing clothes or any tours available. The breakfast, even though was the same every day, was of a high quality, fresh cut fruit salad, quality meats and cheeses and you could make toast. Breakfast tables were cleared immediately for new guests. We had to ask for replacement toilet rolls twice in our 6 night stay.

    "Lovely Tuscan Villa with Amazing Restaurant"
    My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights on our honeymoon. The hotel is converted from a family farm (his mother works there with him) and has picturesque views. David, the owner, made us felt taken care of and goes out of his way to ensure guests have everything they need including coordinating wine tours, cooking classes, taxis when it is an unexpectedly rainy day or suggesting restaurants. The best part of the villa is the amazing intimate restaurant (during warmer weather you can eat by the pool overlooking the vineyards). The food is out of this world, the service is outstanding, and the wine is delicious. We went twice in our 3 days there, and can't wait to return.

    "Unbeatable location, amazing hotel"
    Hotel is in fantastic location right in the middle of the action. Our room overlooked a small square across the street that had a holiday concert that we were able to watch from the room. Hotel bar is pricey, as expected by a 5* lobby bar, but staff is friendly and prompt. Only complaint is the flatness of the pillows and that's stretching. Breakfast is great (buffet plus small menu), staff is quick to recommend dinner places and cafes, and Siena is one of the best towns in Italy. Very recommended. Of note: we drove to the hotel with a TomTom GPS and it took us through multiple traffic-limited, pedestrian-only streets. If you plan to drive to the hotel, set your GPS for the square to the north of the hotel with bus stops and a taxi stand.
