  • Best place to stay in Rome

    "This nice small two level appartment - is best place to have Roman Holiday! The best location ever - just a few steps to all important points from piazza Navona to Colosseum, from St. Peter's Cathedral to Piazza di Spagna. In the appartment there are all necessary facilities for travellers, such as bed and sofa, kitchen, internet+wi-fi for such geeks, as we are. Separate baths - they are very good for time economy)) Two supermarkets and thousand caffeterias are also very close to the door! It was our 10th time in Italy and first time in Rome, and after theat time we fall head over heels in love with this city. Great thanks to Giancarlo and Tony for hospitality, advices, help in transfer from and to the airport! You did our vacation!"

  • A Great 10 Days in Lucca

    "We spent 10 days in Lucianio and Rosa's apartment. We loved the location and the apartment was great. Luciano and Rosa were very kind and accommodating landlords. The apartment was bright, roomy, clean and comfortable. There are three sets of windows opening onto Piazza Amfiteatro. The two separate bedrooms and bathrooms afford private space for two couples and worked well for us. There is ample good and free parking a 10 minute walk away. There are many excellent restaurants, bars and shopping close by. Also don't forget the wall around the old city which is great for walking, running or biking. We made several day trips to Florence, Cinque Terra, Sienna and San Gimignano as well as a lunch trip up into the hills above Lucca. Pisa would also have been a very easy day trip. Be aware there are 60 steps to the "third" floor with no other alternative, but we found them manageable. Having said that we would certainly love to rent this apartment again if we return to Lucca."

Tuscany Travel Tips

Lovely Settings Around Tuscany Vacation Rentals

Known for its beautiful landscapes, ancient cities and artistic heritage, Tuscany is a charming part of Italy to visit. Stay in the quiet countryside just outside the bustling cities and enjoy the peaceful landscape dotted with Etruscan farmhouses, olive groves and delightful palazzo.

The Benefits of Tuscany Vacation Rentals

Renting a vacation rental is the best way to get the most from your Tuscan experience. Delightful villas and historic homes with quiet terraces are set amidst the rolling hills and wineries of the area. Imagine taking a relaxed breakfast in your own private herb gardens and olive groves. Italian food always tastes best when enjoyed outdoors in the fresh air! Vacation villas have plenty of room, making sharing the space with family and friends a real pleasure, and it makes good economic sense too. Dine at your leisure on local wines, cold meats and cheese picked up at the local market. Follow paths into the surrounding hillside or take a trip to the nearest historic city. Tuscany is packed with pleasures and a week is just not long enough to enjoy a Tuscany vacation rental!

Must-See Places to Visit in Tuscany

One day, at least, should be set aside for visiting Florence (Firenze) with its amazing historical buildings, frescoes, churches and artwork. The Duomo, with its “doors of paradise” and historic dome, the Fountain of Neptune and the Bargellow Museum in the Gothic palazzo are just some of the highlights.

Pisa is well known for its leaning tower but there is so much more to see and do in this historic city. The Campo dei Miracoli is considered one of the most beautiful piazzas in the world. The National Museum has many pieces of priceless artwork from the Medici, Lorena and Savoia courts.

The smaller towns of Lucca and Cortona contain some of Italy’s finest treasures. Thermal pools abound in the area around Lucca, offering a quieter place to relax than the crowded beaches in the summer months. It is always worth paying for a private “bagni” (a local beach club) to get your own chair, umbrella and private space on the busiest beaches.

Things to do Around Your Tuscany Accommodations

Tuscany is full of historic places to visit and things to see and do. Head for the hills and enjoy hiking or cycling amidst wild flowers, local fauna and acres of grape vines. Every hillside seems to have its own walled town with ancient red-tiled roofs and old-fashioned shops selling locally produced food. You can even take a cooking course here.

Castles, fortresses and watchtowers are testament to the Middle Age battles which have left an interesting legacy. Visit museums, churches with their centuries-old frescoes, and fabulous art galleries. Eating out is part of the pleasure of a visit to Tuscany. Sit back and let the waiter serve you course after course of tasty local morsels, each with their own wine accompaniment. The memories will stay with you forever; see Tuscany travel guide for further Tuscany tourist information.

Getting to Your Tuscany Villas

Tuscany has two international airports, the Galileo Galilei International Airport at Pisa and the Amerigo Vespucci Airport in Florence which is also known as the Peretola Airport. Direct flights from North America can be expensive, so consider a stop-over in a London holiday rental or Paris villa and take a budget flight with a low-cost airline such as Ryan Air to complete the journey. Once in Tuscany, you can explore the major cities on foot but you will probably need a car to reach your vacation villa and to explore the surrounding countryside.

The Weather in Tuscany

The weather in Tuscany is generally mild with warm summers reaching 40 C (104 F). The hills are cooler than the coast and valleys during the summer; there are more showers at higher elevations, especially during the spring and fall seasons. Winters are chilly but temperatures generally remain above freezing in Tuscany.
