Would you like to give yourself a love escape, staying between the Italian borders? We recommend the three top destinations in Tuscany. If there is a region that more than all invites to love and romance, that is Tuscany. This is the perfect destination for a couple holidays. Now here are the places that you can think of visiting. The places are quite uncommon and therefore, you can go for these places now.
But what are the most romantic destinations?
What are the stages to mark on the agenda, to breathe Valentine’s Day all year round? Our advice is to avoid the big cities (although Tuscany hosts some of the most beautiful in Italy), and to concentrate on the villages and the villages. It isstarting perhaps from Lucignano. Medieval village of Valdichiana, famous for the church of San Francesco, houses a real monument of love: inside the Municipal Museum is located the Golden Tree, a special gold reliquary at the center of a legend. It seems to be favorable for engaged couples and future spouses who come here to exchange promises and swear eternal loyalty. For the Private Tours of Tuscany this is perfect.
Another ideal village for a weekend of love is Pitigliano. A small jewel excavated in the tuff, with its position overlooking the valley. Counted among the most beautiful villages in Italy, it is the fruit of a long history of coexistence between the Jewish community and the Christian community, so much so that it was nicknamed “the Little Jerusalem “.
The Essence of Beauty
Beautiful to explore with those you love, hand in hand, it is all a succession of small alleys, graceful stairways and loggias, fortifications, palaces and fountains. Among the unmissable stops of a visit to the city is the Jewish ghetto, with its newly restored synagogue, the rooms dug out of the tuff and the evocative cemetery. Or the renaissance Parco degliOrsini, where you can treat yourself to a break between nature before sampling the typical “eviction”, sipping kosher wine or Pitigliano white wine.
- A destination that we feel we can recommend is also Pienza. A short distance from Siena, it is the main center of the Val d’Orcia and is a real Renaissance jewel, immersed in a poetic atmosphere and with evocative ways such as the Way of the Kiss and the Way of Love. There aretTwo small traverses that, together with Via della Fortuna and Via del Buia, connect Via del Casello with CorsoRossellino. The most beautiful? Via del Bacio , with that lookout that embraces the whole Val d’Orcia. In the Tuscany Tours this is essenrtial.
These are the Streets of Love, and they are perfect to walk hand in hand. Just as a must is a visit to Palazzo Piccolomini, chosen by Zeffirelli for his Romeo and Juliet . For dinner, treat yourself to a plate of handmade pici or truffle tagliatelle, and accompany it all with a glass of Montepulciano or Brunello di Montalcino.
