The rolling hills of Tuscany are dotted with medieval villages, its restaurants indulge diners with splendid Tuscan dishes and fine local wines and, on its coastline, beaches bask in the warm Italian sun.
The capital of the region, Florence, is among Tuscany’s treasures - and as the birthplace of the Renaissance, its wealth of artistic treasures is unsurpassed. Wander the traditional Italian streets, popping in and out of charming boutiques, galleries and elegant churches, and relax in the ambience of one of Italy’s most picturesque cities.
In the hillside looking down on the city, Belmond Villa San Michele is a truly luxurious getaway. Allegedly designed by Michelangelo himself, this 15th-century former monastery has stunning terraced gardens and breathtaking views across the Arno Valley.
