Things to do!
The town of Pontedera is a good starting point for your exploration of the region. Its strategic location means you can enjoy many day trips to the bigger cities of the region such as Pisa, Florence and Siena, and explore the famous sights and sounds of Tuscany. The region is famous for its beautiful landscapes, cuisine and as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. Tuscany is, of course, famous for its art. Visit the medieval town of Siena and walk through its narrow maze of winding streets and alleyways at Piazza del Campo. Of course you must pay a visit to the world famous Tower of Pisa. There are many attractions in the area surrounding the tower, but once you have made the effort to go to Pisa, you must give climbing the tower a go.
It is advisable to book the climb in advance as the wait in line can be rather long and tiring, especially in the midday Tuscan sun. The experience of climbing the tower is not for the faint-hearted or for those afraid of heights or enclosed spaces. But it is well worth the climb for the views of the city you see, once you reach the top. Not just another tower in Italy but a unique and beautiful experience that most be tried at least once in a lifetime. Next to Florence, this beautiful renaissance city lies right in the heart of Tuscany. Full of history, art and culture, it is hard to choose just one thing to do while in the city.
Bridges and squares!
From Ponte Vecchio to Piazza della Signoria, the possibilities are endless. While in Florence you should also pay a visit to the world famous Uffizi Gallery. The Uffizi Gallery is most famous and oldest museum in the Western World and houses many famous pieces, including The Birth of Venus by Botticelli and Madonna in Sorrow by Giovanni Battista Salvi da Sassoferrato. When you have finished viewing the masterpieces that are on display in the Uffizi, why not take a stroll down to Galleria della’Accademia and feast your eyes on the impressive statue of David by Michelangelo?
This wonderful masterpiece is truly a must-see during your visit to the city, but again, just like the Uffizi Museum it is important to get there early in order to enjoy the whole experience. When you are in Italy you must dine like a king and eat some of the best pasta, bread, gelato, pastries and vegetables that only the Italians know how to produce. For those guests who are watching their figures they will be relieved to hear that unlike Roma and Southern Italy, Tuscan cuisine is based on simplicity. Plenty of vegetables and fresh fruit are included in many dishes, along with fine cuts of fresh beef from the Chiana Valley.
