Cheap flights to Tuscany

A region with a rustic charm, Tuscany is one artistic powerhouse. Seems like whatever they do, they do it in style and panache. For one, the Renaissance Art in Florence is worth seeing, and the Tuscan food and wine, superb. Tuscany has two facets, which includes the art cities such as Florence, Siena, Lucca, and Pisa, and the countryside on the other, a breath of fresh air from the noise and traffic of some of the larger Tuscan cities.

What to see & do

Considered the crown jewel of Florence, the Uffizi Gallery has the best collection of Renaissance art in the world. It fills the space of the vast U-shaped Palazzo degli Uffizi. Works in the Uffizi are displayed on the second floor in a series of numbered rooms of two dramatically long corridors, with the first corridor showcasing 13th-century Sienese art and is designed like a medieval chapel. Meanwhile, the other room features 14th-century art, highlighting Simone Martini’s Annunciation (1333) painted with Lippo Memmi that sets the Madonna in a sea of gold.

You should also visit the Duomo in Florence, the city’s most iconic landmark and is one of Italy’s Top Three destinations, together with Pisa’s Leaning Tower and Rome’s Colosseum. Its neo-Gothic façade was designed in 19th century to replace the uncompleted original and torn down 16th century version. The oldest Gothic part of the cathedral would be its south flank, a mid-14th-century High Gothic creation. The dome was built between 1420 and 1436, taking inspiration from Rome’s Pantheon. You can also opt to take the spiral staircase if you want to get an aerial view of the octagonal choir of the cathedral below, as well as the seven round stained-glass windows piercing the octagonal drum.

How to get around within Tuscany

To get around Tuscany, you can opt to take a bus. Toscana Mobilitá has a useful website that details bus routes and schedules in Tuscany. If you will be taking the bus, you should purchase your tickets before boarding the bus, which can be bought at most Tabacchi-shops that sell bus tickets, and sometimes, even newsstands and bars sell tickets. Blue-coloured buses ply the interurban service while orange-coloured buses ply the local services; however, interurban buses also serve local stops along the route.
