Must-Do Activities in the Tuscan Countryside
Spring season is definitely the best time of the year to relax and savor the beauty of the Tuscan countryside. In this region, little and big cities alike offer a wide selection of experiences that combine leisure and entertainment.
For example, if you are a wine or truffle enthusiast, you absolutely need to book a visit to the historic cellars of Montepulciano, as well as have lunch in the vineyards and wine tastings in San Gimignano, where you can also go truffle hunting in the woods and then have a truffle lunch.
Alternatively, if you love animals, the best choice for you is taking horse-riding tours through the vineyards in San Gimignano or on the Sienese hills, followed by a picnic or a wine tasting, to your liking.
If you want to live a once-in-a-lifetime experience, going trekking or walking with the sweetest alpacas in the Florentine hills is exactly what you are looking for. The experience is suitable for both adults and children, even those who are not much of a walker.
On the other hand, if you are interested in something more dynamic and adventurous, you absolutely shouldn’t miss the quad excursions arranged in some fairytale landscapes, such as the Chianti hills or the Maremma. After the ride, you are also offered a lunch with grilled meat and good wine or wine tasting, depending on the package you choose.
