Tuscany’s popularity (as a holiday place) has been glorious ever since the days of Roman empirical prosperity. From the Etruscan classical period to the days of Roman glory and further on to the Italian Renaissance, Tuscany has been a distinguished holiday retreat among artists, intellectuals and all the Roman aristocrats who could meet the expense of a luxuriant holiday. Ever since that era the world has changed with leaps and bounds but Tuscany still remains the holiday retreat of quite a few regular vacationers. Tuscany is conceivably the most glorious ordnance of art in the world. Extraordinary paintings, sculptures, frescoes and numerous other architectural masterpieces are just some of the reasons for this ever increasing popularity of this land as an Art reserve. The delicious cuisine, the elegant wine, the soothing calm tranquility of the weather, the local populace, their hospitality and specifically the Tuscan villas-on-rent add further flavor to one’s holiday.
Tuscany is rich in beautiful tourist spots, from country-side to beaches; the mountains to river Arno, there is a so much to see and do in Tuscany, the real difficulty is where to start. As a rule most people start from Florence, moving on to Siena and then Pisa. The roll-call of the “cities of art” or the città di arteis overwhelming: Arezzo, Cortona, Gimignano and Lucca San, all of them are equally striking.
Having explained so much about the places to visit I might have tempted you and you might be wondering and pondering the usual question that comes to mind while planning a vacation, WHERE to lodge while on a holiday in Tuscany? A place to repose is an obvious necessity while travelling to some far and distant place. Everyone needs to come back to the serenity of a house to relax after the tiring sight-seeing. However in Tuscany every other house is an accommodation for tourists and every cottage a holiday retreat. It depends completely on you to pick your choice of stay from the wide variety of Farmhouses, castles, Beach-facing sea cottages or a luxury villa up in the mountains or the river banks. Any of these accommodations are available for rent. The commodities may vary from place to place and as per the amount they charge you but the people are equally hospitable everywhere. The warmth and generosity will charm you. Their hospitality is unparalleled. You can also enjoy popular local spas, Jacuzzi, private beach, pool, a vineyard in your backyard or a farmhouse that completely suits your whims.
