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 (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
- 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!

Where to stay - which town/region?
- Florence: Tuscany's capital is a bewitchingly beautiful city which oozes medieval splendour. Its narrow, winding cobbled streets - which are littered with quaint cafes and gelaterias - suddenly open up into magnificent plazas which reveal true architectural marvels, such as Il Duomo (the cathedral). A breathtaking spot.
- Siena: Often overshadowed by the imperious Florence, Siena is a magnificent city in itself. The expansive Piazza is home to the annual Palio di Siena, an ancient horse race where riders dressed in extravagently-coloured outfits hare around the track (with spectators standing right in the middle of all this!).
- Montepulciano: This hilltop town is of course best-known for its magnificent wine. Boasting gorgeous architecture and divine views, it's the ideal spot for a laidback retreat.
- Pisa: Or how about Pisa, with its notorious leaning tower and resplendent architecture?
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
- 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.

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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

Best Tuscan Escapes
- Pardini’s Hermitage is a simple but idyllic 1950s villa. An island refuge only reachable by boat,
- 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.
- 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!
- Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort is a gorgeous country estate in the Tuscan Hills. There's a good range of rooms, suites and apartments (family suites can sleep up to five) and great facilities including outdoor pool, excellent restaurant and art and cookery classes. No one will be bored here!
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.
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 €59 per night including breakfast 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 €85 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.
- 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.
