The main tourist spots are Florence, Pisa, Castiglione della Pescaia, Grosseto and Sienna. The village of Castiglione della Pescaia is the most visited seaside destination in the region. Tuscany has over 120 protected nature reserves, making Tuscany and its capital Florence popular tourist destinations that attract millions of tourists every year.
Tuscany, especially Florence, is regarded as the birthplace of the Renaissance. Though “Tuscany” remained a linguistic, cultural and geographic conception, rather than a political reality. Tuscany has an immense cultural and artistic heritage, expressed in the region’s churches, palaces, art galleries, museums, villages and piazzas. Many of these artifacts are found in the main cities, such as Florence and Sienna but also in smaller villages scattered around the region, such as San Gimignano.

White truffles from San Miniato appear in October and November. Beef of the highest quality comes from the Chiana Valley, specifically a breed known as Chianina used for Florentine steak. The indigenous Cinta Senese breed of pork is also produced.Wine is a famous and common produce of Tuscany. Chianti is arguably the most well known internationally.
Best time to do it !
Tuscany is known for its unique beauty every single time of the year but there’s a big difference between visiting a place for exploring or hiking and visiting a place to get married. Big difference! The climate is fairly mild in the coastal areas, and is harsher and rainy in the interior, with considerable fluctuations in temperature between winter and summer, giving the region a soil-building active freeze-thaw cycle, in part accounting for the region’s once having served as a key breadbasket of Ancient Rome. So, the best time of you to tie the knot in Tuscany is between April to October.
The weather in Tuscany is wonderful and your guests are gonna love it. On the other hand, the day light (and the sunset) are amazing that time of year, which means great photos for you. But, no matter what everybody say, it’s your wedding and it’s your dream. So, just follow your heart and do what your soul is seeking for.
