There is no shortage of amazing things to see and do while visiting Tuscany. The region of Tuscany is made up of four main cities, Florence, Pisa, Siena, and Livorno. Known world wide for its stunning architecture and amazing historical landmarks, there are definitely multiple “must-sees.”
The leaning tower of Pisa is known around the world as the building that clearly tilts to one side. Built in 1173 on unstable soil, the tower begun to start tilting before construction on the building had even reached the half way point. Over the last fifteen years or so, renovations have attempted to correct the problem. In the early 1990’s the structure tilted over 13 feet. Only 30 people at a time are allowed in what is perhaps one of the most famous buildings in the world.
The Duomo, or Cathedral of Santa Maria dei Fiori is another must see. Within walking distance to the Leaning Tower of Piza, this cathedral is world famous. Known for its incredible architecture, this is one of the most traveled to destinations in Tuscany.
Every area of Tuscany has amazing museums. The most well known are in Florence. The Uffizi Gallery hosts tons of tourists each year, making it the most visited. It is home to the famous Michelangelo’s, David.

Many elitists from around the world come to Tuscany to live, and you will know why the moment you arrive. Full of architectural gems and culture, were sure you’ll book another vacation promptly after you return from this dream vacation.
