Touring Tuscany and Rome

By: Keith Barrett

A typical ten day escorted holiday of the region provides ample time to see some of the sights of the region. Relaxing on an executive coach provides a wonderful, stress-free way to enjoy the countryside of Tuscany.

It's little wonder that so many people have become enchanted by this part of Italy. Most excursions to this part of Italy would be expected to take in the two glorious cities of Florence and Pisa.

Both have enchanting districts, as well as the spectacular sights provided by their cathedrals. In the case of Pisa, its Leaning Tower remains one of the most distinctive structures on the planet.

If you've never visited Italy before then you will be pleasantly surprised by the food that is on offer.

Even in the most basic Tuscan restaurant you can expect to be served freshly made food, using the finest local ingredients.

Italian cooking in this region relies heavily on locally grown tomatoes and olive oil. As Europe's largest producer of wine, you'll find that you won't go thirsty here either!

To the south of the cities of Pisa and Florence, you'll find that many escorted holidays will include a visit to the towns of Siena and San Gimignano. The latter is famed for its medieval towers, drawing comparisons with modern day Manhattan.

As you are driven through the Tuscan landscape, there seems to be a great view at every turn. This is the land of Chianti wine and you'll see vineyards dotted around many of the hills of Tuscany.

Rome, at the end of many guided touring holidays, has its own charms of course. The remains of the great Roman Empire are still to be found here, while the modern hotel facilities are of a high standard.

A holiday to Tuscany and Rome provides stimulation for all the senses.
