Visiting Tuscany

Visiting Tuscany

One of the most popular regions in Italy, with its mountains, vineyards, beaches and cultural cities, Tuscany continues to be a hugely popular destination for visitors from across the world. From the mountains to the sea passing through Pisa and the beautiful Florence, the region offers varied charms.

The Tuscan Coast

If you land in Pisa you will not be far from the sea. In half an hour you will reach the coast with your rental car. During the high season the seaside resorts of Viareggio, Forte dei Marmi, Marina di Pietrasanta and Marina di Carrara are very lively. Be careful, on private beaches you will have to pay for your pitch or go directly into the water.

Forte dei Marmi is probably the most expensive coastal town, lined with hotels, villas and luxury shops. Viareggio is famous for its carnival, which transforms the city for 5 weekends in the year.

Tip: It gets so warm in the afternoon in Tuscany that it is often nicer to move by car than by foot. Parking spaces are available even in high season. The number of your licence plate will be photographed by equipment to monitor parking.


The Apuan Alps

Behind the beaches of Marina di Pietrasanta and Viareggio you will find the Apuan Alps. If you cross them, do not miss their many marble quarries. Follow the road Strada Provinciale di Arni to discover the most beautiful panoramas. You will then reach the Garfagnana, an area with incredible charm in the province of Lucca.

  • Step 1: Isola Santa

This medieval village lost between lake and mountain has a fairy tale look, 1 hour drive from the coast of Versilia.

  • Step 2: Cava dismessa Hen Aux

Just before reaching the Strada Provinciale di Arni, you will pass Cava dismessa Hen Aux, a former stone quarry.

Important Cities

Important Cities

Pisa and Florence are two must-see cities during a stay in Tuscany. If you have time, complete your visit with Lucca.


Capital of Tuscany and the cradle of the Italian Renaissance, Florence is home to some of the greatest artistic treasures in the world. The gallery of the Uffizi presents only works by Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Caravaggio or Botticelli. The Galleria dell'Accademia hosts Michelangelo's David. You can also visit the Ponte Vecchio, famous and ancient bridge of jewellers and goldsmiths. Between Armani, Gucci, Versace and Prada, lovers of haute-couture will also be satisfied with the offerings! In Florence you can find our branches at the airport and in the city centre.


The only tower in Pisa attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists each year. On Piazza dei Miracoli, it stands beside the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Assumption and the Baptistery. You will find our car rental services in Pisa near the airport.


The pearl of northern Tuscany will charm you, 15 km from Viareggio and about 20 km north of Pisa. Its 12-meter high wall lends itself to a panoramic walk and hides an amphitheatre, the oval square and many shops.

Climate, Cuisine & Travel with Children

Climate, Cuisine & Travel with Children

Climate and temperatures

Tuscany enjoys a temperate climate. Cultural visits are preferably from April to May, where temperatures are mild and museums are less crowded. From the end of June to the end of August the high season is in full swing: the heat can push the high thirties and will make you appreciate the coast. Autumn is also a good period to visit as it becomes less hot and sunny.

The Tuscan kitchen

The Tuscan cuisine is simple but delicious: the most eloquent example is the Bruschetta. Among the traditional Tuscan dishes, you will find chicken hunter (pollo alla cacciatora) or risotto with cep mushrooms. Red meat lovers will love the Florentine steak, all with Tuscan wine like Chianti, but also Nobile di Montepulciano or Brunello di Montalcino.

Tuscany with children

Italians love children. In addition, the beaches benefit from shallow water and there are lifeguards watching over the surf. The ideal family excursions? The zoo of Monte Amiato or the Pinocchio leisure park, located northeast of Lucca. Families may also prefer agritourism to hotels by staying in a farm or vineyard. Your car rental in Tuscany will allow you to move easily in the countryside.
