Spring means the beginning of a new life: the temperature gets warmer, flowers blossom everywhere, tourists from all over the world arrive here to admire the beauty of the Tuscan landscape.
If you want to visit Florence during the Easter holidays, take a walk in the Bardini Garden to admire the spectacular blossoming of wisteria. Then, don't miss the Explosion of the chart in front of the Duomo: every year hundreds of people take part in this social event and follow a procession with traditional costumes, musicians and flag-wavers.
If you're traveling with kids, take them to the Pinocchio Park in Collodi. The inventor of Pinocchio was a Tuscan writer called Carlo Lorenzini, known as Carlo Collodi. The renowned writer took his surname from Collodi, the small village set in the Valdinievole area.
If the weather is milder, generally from the end of May, locals start going to the Tuscan beaches and even if the water is still too cold to swim, it's possible to get the first tan of the year and to enjoy the sight and the smell of the sea.
If you prefer walking, spring and autumn are the best period for hiking. From the mountain peaks of the Apennines to the Tuscan Maremma, from the Via Francigena to the Renaissance ring of Florence, Tuscany offers itineraries for all kinds of trekkers.
