About 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 (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.

Some of our Tuscan Collections:

What not to Miss

  • Visit the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, in Florence, a beautiful 13th century Gothic architectural masterpiece! 
  • Go to Pisa and see the Leaning Tower... 
  • Take a car or bike trip down the Chianti Classico route, a few km outside of Florence, full of vineyards and olive groves. 
  • Attend the Palio horse race in Siena, on either the 2nd July or 16th August! 
  • Head to San Gimignano, a picturesque Tuscan hill town, and climb the famous Torre Grossa, which features countless works by great Renaissance painters. 
  • Explore the perfectly-preserved 10m-high medieval walls of Monteriggioni! 
  • Hike through the rolling green heart of Tuscany, the Val 'Orcia. 
  • Check out the wonderful and intriguing city of Voltera, which boasts a Roman amphitheatre, Romanesque cathedral and some mysterious Etruscan archaeological sites! 

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.

The Best Places to stay in Tuscany

For Luxury

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.
  • For a lovely Florentine riverside location the Ferragamo-owned Hotel Lungarno, with its with elegant modern interiors, and views of the Arno, is perfect.

For Romance

  • Villa Le Barone is a gorgeous Tuscan villa with spectacular views. Rooms and suites are traditional and romantic with exposed beams, lovely fabrics and antique furniture. Plus there's a heated salt water pool, restaurant, wine tasting and cookery classes. A popular choice for honeymooners!
  • If you're looking for romance, accompanied by great food then book the Tenuta San Pietro. Located not far from Lucca, it offers just 10 luxury rooms with oodles of character complemented by modern art. 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!
  • If you’re searching for Florence’s traditional romance then the Grand Hotel Villa Cora is for you. It’s an exclusive, Baroque palace hotel, with a beautiful pool and landscaped gardens, 46 luxurious rooms and a deliciously promising choice of restaurants, from fine dining to bistro service.
  • The Helvetia & Bristol has been the home-from-home choice of the international elite since the 17th Century, with its elegant old-fashioned luxury and charming, classically styled rooms. There’s a Mediterranean restaurant with a view of the Piazza Stozzi.
  • Locanda dell’Amorosa is a seductive hotel converted from an entire Renaissance hamlet surrounded by rolling countryside,
  • A short drive from the coast, Tenuta La Bandita is a charming, 18th Century villa in the Tuscan hills with an excellent traditional restaurant, 55 hectares of gardens and good links to local vineyards.
  • 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.

Best B&Bs

  • 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.

For Families

  • 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

  • The Hotel della Fortezza occupies an historic building, an 11th Century fortress, with commanding views over the surrounding region, and prices start from as little as €69 per night in low season.
  • Then there’s Casa Palmira, a charmingly rustic B&B beautifully converted from a barn - and just 16kms from Florence. Prices start from €70 per night.

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.

Travel Information

  • 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 fast train service. 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; quite cool and dark, but still beautiful in winter - especially around Christmas.
