In addition to hiking in nice towns and the Renaissance arts, there are many other possibilities in Tuscany. You can for example study how to prepare a meal or simply try your hand at cooking, hiking, playing a game of tennis, playing a game of volleyball or going to a wellness centre. The majority of the important local winemakers are situated along the Florence-Siena route.
Whites are less well known than red ones, but the Vernaccia of San Gimignano is recognised as an exceptional DOCG variety. Throughout the last 30-40 years, the development of the local winemaking sector has been strong, resulting in the so-called Supertuscan Prodigy, renowned in Bolgheri, Maremma and many other parts of Tuscany.
The Tuscany is also known for bicycle tours. The Tuscany region has more than 30 certified origin controlled vines, some of which have also received the origin control and guarantee certificates. However, some of the best Italian vines are marked with the less stringent Indicazione geographica tipica, which is often a symbol of a more contemporary "international" win.
In Tuscany, the questions of what to consume are simple to answered. Montepulciano is famous for its red wine, Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and the Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Montalcino and Montepulciano usually have high standards, and Brunello in particular consistently wins many prizes (which also affects the prize).
When you are not willing to spend a lot of money on your vine, but still want something more beautiful, Montalcino and Montepulciano have the men's versions of their Rosso di Montalcino and Rosso di Montepulciano. Among these traditionally produced vines, perhaps only Brunello has the strength to go with a large Florentine beefy steak, the bistecca allea fiiorentina.
If you want something more meaty, you'll have to turn to the superb Tokanese wine. Cortona - The jewel of Tuscany. Fiesole - The old romantic town with a view of Florence.
