Search the best hotels in Tuscany
Tuscany is a must for any visitor to Italy. Though slightly tarnished by the idea of the "chiantishire set", it has so much to offer everyone, from the stunning landscapes, beautiful hilltop villages to the jaw dropping art collections in the Uffizi and the amazing architecture in the cities. Our selection of the best places to stay in Tuscany ranges from hotels in the towns and cities like Campo Regio Relais in the centre of Siena or the Royal Victoria in Pisa. Both brilliant choices if you want to walk rather than have to travel to the sights; to properties that are slap bang in the middle of nowhere, with nothing around but the Tuscan countryside and all it has to offer.

What not to Miss
- For culture vultures there is no other option than to visit Florence. But Arrezo, Lucca and Cortona have plenty to offer too, without the vast hordes. Sure they're busy too.....just not on the same scale!
- If you're coming to Tuscany to marvel at stunning countryside and sample the delights of food and wine, then we recommend you base yourself in San Gimignano or Montepulciano. The former is a beautiful hilltop town famous for having fifteen medieval towers, the latter is another hilltop beauty this time surrounded by vineyards!
- Alternatively you might want to explore the less talked about Tuscan coastline. Slightly inland you'll find the historic town of Grosseto, a charming place which has somehow managed to evade the radar of most tourists. Right on the coast and with a long stretch of beach is Forte dei Marmi, a long-time favourite of the Florentines. Or why not venture out to one of the islands? Elba's got everything - 150 beaches, lush green interior and history galore from Napoleon to the Romans.
Whilst there may be enormous choice of accommodation in this popular region, it is a good idea to plan well ahead if you want to bag one of the best places to stay in Tuscany during the busy summer months.
If luxury is a must for you, then our list of the best places to stay in Tuscany can certainly deliver.
- First up, what about Il Falconiere? Counted among Tuscany's best hotels, it offers Michelin starred dining, beautifully furnished rooms and a wonderful location just outside Cortona.
- The Grand Hotel Continental in Siena also gets our vote. Expect grandiose elegance, the floor to ceiling frescoes in the salon are a sight to behold, plus impeccable service too.
- Villa Bordoni near Greve in Chianti hits the spot too. Stylish, luxurious bedrooms with uninterrupted views of the surrounding area. There are even cookery classes for those who want to recreate something from its excellent restaurant.
For a City Break
- Florence’s Palazzo Niccollini al Duomo is a fabulous property choc-a-block with original features and furniture, in an unbeatable location. Family owned and run, it is a spectacular residence overlooking the Duomo.
- The Palazzo Vecchietti is a distinguished15th Century built palazzo right in the heart of Florence. Dante called it 'Paradiso'. Now divided into fourteen luxuriously decorated suites and apartments, with lovely details like private terraces, high ceilings and amazing views. It's easily one of the best places to stay in Florence if you're looking for something a bit special.
- If you love the beauty of Florence's architecture, but prefer something more modern when it comes to your own space, Floroom is for you. The decor in these four rooms is monochrome, splashed with modern art, and you're right in the heart of town, just behind the Ponte Vecchio.

There's an outdoor pool with a view and the restaurant serves gourmet regional and Mediterranean cuisine. For the really keen, there's cookery classes too!

- Surrounded by vineyards near Chiusi, Il Patriarca has a Michelin-starred restaurant as well as romantic four-poster bedrooms and a pool with dreamy views over the vineyards.
Best Tuscan Escapes
- Pardini’s Hermitage is a simple but idyllic1950s villa. An island refuge only reachable by boat,
- One of the best hotels in rural Tuscany for art lovers, try the Residenza d'Arte, a rustic, quirky ‘house of art’ surrounded by beautiful countryside just outside Siena.
- The Hotelito Lupaia has astounding views from its pool, and is a convenient base for Florence, Siena, and Cortona,
- Or, to escape to you own private hamlet, stay at the Borgo San Felice, with panoramic views and lots of activities on offer.
- Campo Regio Relais is a superb little B&B bang in the centre of Siena. Romantic rooms feature four poster beds and antique furniture, and there's a roof terrace with wonderful views over the town.
- For laid back luxury in B&B form book in to La Bandita where the emphasis is on fulfilling the whims of even the pickiest of guests. The swimming pool has views to die for and if you can't be bothered to go out, there is a gourmet private chef on site!
- Palazzo Galletti has an enviable location on one of Florence's most elegant palazzos, occupying the first floor of a mansion-with-a-view. Galletti has eleven rooms, nine of which have elegant, semi-contemporary decor and tiny terraces and two of which are spectacular - vast, with wonderful frescos.
- Casa Howard is a chic B&B guesthouse converted from a Florentine palazzo. Owned by textile designers, their forte is very much in evidence in all of the individually designed rooms. With fresh flowers everywhere and honesty bars on each floor, it's definitely amongst the best places if you're looking for a home from home feel.
- If your kids may appreciate a little bit more space, then the Villa Tolomei, a beautiful villa just five minutes drive from the centre of Florence, may be for you. It’s a small five star hotel, set in 20 peaceful hectares of olive groves and vineyards, with wonderful gardens, a lovely pool and spa and a fantastic Tuscan restaurant.
- N4U offers a meeting of historic Florence with family friendliness in a great location just one minute from the Duomo. This five room B&B has been converted from a thousand year old tower, and the result is a quirky, characterful collection of rooms with beautiful views and lovely original features.
- In the Chianti hills is the Relais Villa Petrischio, a stunning country house with traditional interiors and a range of accommodation options from rooms to suites and family sized apartments.
A Tuscan Agriturismo
At the other end of the scale some of the best places to stay in Tuscany are the little guesthouses and B&Bs that are tucked away, slightly off radar.
- Large families and groups will appreciate the generous sized, but rustic, accommodation at the Agriturismo Poggiacolle near San Gimignano, where some apartments sleep up to ten people.
- If you prefer to be centred around Florence, then try Villa Rucellai, a family run property on the outskirts of the city surrounded by its own vines and olive groves and with the added bonus of an outdoor swimming pool.
For Great Value
- Il Chiostro di Pienza is an elegant former monastery with spectacular views over the surrounding hills and valleys of Val d’Orcia, and the 37 rooms are priced below £100 per night.
- The Hotel della Fortezza also occupies a historic building, this time an 11th Century fortress, with commanding views over the surrounding region, and is also under £100 per night.
- Then there’s Casa Palmira, a charmingly rustic B&B beautifully converted from a barn - and just 16kms from Florence.
For an Apartment or Villa
A holiday villa or apartment is often the best option if you're travelling with family or in a group of friends. For a wide range from budget bolthole to chic retreat, we recommend the selection with our online partner booking.com.
- Pisa Airport is Tuscany’s largest, it’s well served by both the low-cost carriers and the big international airlines. It’s also well connected to most other main towns - except Siena - by a fest train service. The train service to Siena is slower for some reason. Florence’s Amerigo Vespucci international airport is another option, but has more limited connections.
- If you want to hire a car - which we highly recommend if you’re staying in Tuscany - we recommend you visit our online partner Rentalcars.
- Tuscany is large and varied, so it’s difficult to generalise about the best time to visit. But broadly speaking Tuscany is popular, but very hot and very busy, during the summer months - especially August, quieter, and with pleasant weather in spring, stunning in autumn, and quite cool and dark, but still beautiful in winter - especially around Christmas.
