Can you explore the region of Tuscany in a day?

Tuscany is best known for the rolling hills of the wine region and the historic medieval towns.

The more time spent in Tuscany the better, but we know what it’s like travelling on holidays and not having that extra time to spare. So yes, it is possible to explore Tuscany in the day to get an idea of what this region is all about.

The best way to explore Tuscany is on a tour with a tour guide who can cram all the best parts of the region in a day.

What to see in Tuscany

There is really so much to see in Tuscany. From the large popular towns to the smaller towns out in the country.


Florence Italy
The capital of Tuscany is Florence, a major town in the region with so much to do and see here. The highlights include the Uffizi Gallery, the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, and the Accademia Gallery.

Tuscany is home to some of the most famous wine regions in the world. There are many different wines that come from the Tuscan region, including Chianti and Super Tuscans.


Siena Italy
Siena is a beautiful gothic style town with steep and narrow streets to explore. You’ll want to see for yourself the green, yellow, and terracotta colour buildings. Other highlights of the town include Siena Cathedral, Piazza Del Camp, and the Opera Del Duomo Museum.

Lucca is a charming Tuscan town and we suggest stopping by while exploring Tuscany. The town can be reached on public transport or even a hire car and is about an hour’s drive from Florence.

When in the town, ensure you walk around the streets to discover the small boutiques and buildings. You could climb the Torre Guinigi, a 1384 Romanesque gothic style tower.

Another popular city within Tuscany is Pisa. Of course, the city is known for the iconic Leaning Tower, but there is so much to do and see here! In part of the city centre, you can see the Baptistery and the Cathedral which is right by the Leaning Tower.

San Gimignano

San gimignano
San Gimignano is a thriving Tuscany town with some of the town buildings built in the 19th century. The town has museums including the Palazzo Comunale that is filled with frescoes and artwork. Other must sees in the town include the Duomo Di San Gimignano, La Rocca di Montestaffoli, and the Torre Grossa.
