Valentine’s Day is coming! If you’re planning a short or long holiday with your loved one, you may want to check out our selection of truly romantic spots in Tuscany! Here are the 5 that we’ve chosen for you!
Let’s start with one of the most iconic and romantic images of Tuscany. The lovely chapel of Vitaleta, which is located in the heart of one of the best-loved landscapes in the world: the gentle hills and cypress trees of Val d’Orcia. Built between 1867 and 1870, on top of the ruins of the monastery of Saint Francis, this little chapel will look stunning in the background of your San Valentine’s photos!
In the maze-like narrow alleys of Pienza, you’ll bump into “Kiss Street”(Via del Bacio), “Love Street” (Via dell’Amore) and “Fortune Street” (Via della Fortuna). The town was the setting of Franco Zeffirelli’s movie “Romeo and Juliet”, so it doesn’t really get more romantic than that!
Of course, one of the best things that you can do in Tuscany for a special Valentine’s Day is to treat yourself to a relaxing day (and night) at the spa: hot springs and therapeutic waters, beautiful settings, massages and cuddles, relaxation and healthy food. Have a look at the thermal establishments that are worth a visit also from a natural, historical or artistic point of view.
Climb up to the top of the perfectly preserved city walls of Lucca: a ring around the city covering a total of more than 4 kilometres of striking tree-lined embankments, which also make this a wonderful green space. Come here at sunset with your loved one, with a bottle of wine and two glasses and enjoy the exceptional view over the churches and towers of Lucca with the Apuan Alps on the horizon.
