Tuscany continues to amaze throughout the fall season. Moving beyond the beach, you can indulge in relaxation at some of the most famous spas in the world, discover the Chiantigiana countryside or visit the most beautiful medieval towns in Italy, where time seems to stand still.

For those who love nature-based vacations, you should definitely spend a few days visiting Chianti: this postcard-like landscape in the hills and vineyards can also be explored by bike. Along the paths and tiny streets there’s always something that will catch your attention: abbeys, churches, castles and villas add to the fairy-tale like feel of the landscape. We recommend checking out the “strade del vino” (wine roads), where you can enjoy traditional Tuscan tastes. 

In the incredible countryside you’ll find some of Tuscany’s best gems, from the medieval Anghiari, one of the most beautiful towns in Italy, to the evocative San Gimignano, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There’s also Volterra, fascinating for its medieval characteristics juxtaposed with traces of the Etruscan age, and Cortona in the Arezzo area, which offers an exciting chance to explore both artistic heritage sites and elegant noble villas.

A true Tuscan itinerary, though, can’t skip the important spots connected to relaxation and wellness. Want to escape the chaos of the city? You must head to some of Tuscany’s spas and resorts: these places employ a mix of ancient traditions and new methods in elegant, evocative settings. The success of Tuscany’s spas is largely due to the high quality of natural sources and thermal baths in the area, and their therapeutic qualities.
