Day Trips from Florence

Since Florence is relatively small, tourists will only need a couple of days to see it all. Therefore; if you are staying in Florence for over a weekend, we recommend organizing several trips to various villages and towns of Tuscany. The region has numerous charming towns and villages that can be visited in half-day trips or one-day trips from Florence. These are the most popular places to visit:

Day trips from Florence

  • Pisa Pisa is an old port city which became famous worldwide thanks to its leaning tower, the Tower of Pisa.
  • Siena Siena is one of the most striking towns in Tuscany and in our opinion one of the most charming cities of Italy. Its Cathedral is absolutely breath-taking.
  • San Gimignano Known as the Town of Fine Towers, San Gimignano is a small walled medieval town. In 1990 it was added to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
  • Monteriggioni Monteriggioni is a charming medieval village located 34 miles (55 km) south of Florence. It is a great stop on the way to Siena.
  • Cinque Terre Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola and Riomaggiore are five of the most beautiful villages in the world. Cinque Terre is truly fascinating.
  • Asís Believed to be a sacred destination, Assisi is the birthplace and resting place of St. Francis and St. Clare.
  • Cortona Cortona is the setting of the film Under the Tuscan Sun and one of the most picturesque villages in Tuscany.

How to do these day-trips?

These remarkable and iconic places in Tuscany can either be visited by booking an English-speaking day-excursion from Florence to any of these charming towns, or you can rent a car and discover Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Cinque Terre, Assisi or Cortona on your own. Unless you have booked a long stay holiday in Tuscany, we recommend booking a guided tour. It is the easiest and most-hassle free way of exploring the region and the best way of discovering all it has to offer.
