Tuscany is one of the most visited places in Italy. The demand by tourists is high and there’s a very broad selection of accommodations to serve them. There are all kinds of places where to stay in Tuscany from budget options to luxury hotels. In addition, since the region has a very rich architectural heritage, many of these accommodations are found in historically and artistically important buildings.
If you want, you can stay in luxury hotels that were once palaces used by the rich aristocracy. In order to get a full experience of the Tuscan lifestyle, the best pick is to stay at one of the several “agritourism” accommodations. These are rural palaces and houses, where you don’t only sleep, but you also get to experience the agricultural production going on nearby. You can learn, and of course you can also taste the wine, olive oil, honey or jam they produce in these places.
As we said, the choice is almost infinite; herein we present you some really great options where to stay in Tuscany.
