Tuscany see + do

It's pretty much impossible to "do" Tuscany in a single trip: Its cultural and natural riches are almost endless, and they're also well spread out across the region. It's best to choose an area—like the Val d'Orcia, or Lucca, Pisa, and the Versilia resorts—and explore it thoroughly; alternatively, pick a theme (early Renaissance frescoes; Brunello di Montalcino wine; the area's hot springs and Gothic abbeys) and run with it. See the Lay of the Land section for a sense of where the main towns and areas are in relation to one another. Unless you're planning to spend most of your time in a single town or hop from one to another by bus or train, a car is pretty much essential. Alternatives include walking, cycling, or riding tours, which are offered by an increasing number of specialized tour operators in both guided and self-guided formats (but don't underestimate the gradients involved, especially if you're considering a cycling holiday; away from the coast, there are very few flat roads).
