Actually located on the Ligurian coast, but a great idea to include as many want a day trip to the Cinque Terre when they are on holiday in Tuscany.

Here you can walk along a coastal path from town to town. Read more about Cique Terre.

Cozy medieval town towering high on a mountain top. The city was used as a backdrop for the filming of the movie Twilight. Do not be surprised if you pass the occasional cyclist on your way up to Volterra. Cycling is popular in this area and the slopes up to Volterra are a good test of strength and endurance. From the city there are great views over beautiful Tuscan countryside. Inside the city center, it is relaxing to stroll around and maybe sit down for a meal at one of the city’s cafes or restaurants.

8. The Versilia Coast

You will find beaches with clearer water in Tuscany, but the Versilia coast is well organized with nice beach plots where you are well taken care of. Here it is easy and enjoy lazy days at the beach. Clean public facilities, the opportunity to take a shower, and often playgrounds for the kids. Along the boulevard there is a relaxed vibe at bars and restaurants. Viareggio has many shops for those that love purchasing fashion to bring home. Read more about versilia-kysten.

9. Montalcino

Montalcino is known for its Brunello wines. Food and wine are the focus in this charming little town with stunning views. On the way to Montalcino you drive through an area called “crete senesi”, “Siena’s camp”. A breathtaking landscape as you have never seen before!

10. Pisa

Borgo Puccini, feriehus i Italia : Primatoscana

It’s quite an experience to see the Leaning Tower, and one is amazed at how crooked it actually is. In the 12th century, the tower was seen as a failure, but it has become one of Italy’s biggest tourist attractions. The tower is located on “Piazza dei Miracoli”.
