Tuscany, renowned for its Renaissance art, lush landscapes, and culinary delights, offers a camping experience like no other. Here, you can set up your tent amidst olive groves, stay at agritourism farms offering authentic rural experiences, or choose campsites with views of the iconic Tuscan hills dotted with cypress trees. Tuscany’s rich history is felt everywhere, from the streets of Florence to the ancient walls of Lucca.

Places to visit

Explore the architectural marvels of Florence, including the Duomo, its famous Cathedral, the Uffizi Gallery and the Piazza della Signoria. The leaning tower of Pisa offers a unique photo opportunity, while the medieval city of Siena captivates with its historic palio and charming streets. Don’t miss the chance to wander the vineyards of Chianti, stopping at wineries to taste the region's renowned wines.

Activities

Tuscany is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and culture seekers alike. Hike the Apuan Alps, cycle through the Val d'Orcia, or take a hot air balloon ride for breathtaking views of the rolling hills of the countryside. Wine lovers also get their money's worth, because the region is known for its numerous wine-growing areas. The region’s thermal baths, like those in Saturnia, provide a relaxing retreat after a day of exploration.

Events, festivals and traditions

Tuscany's calendar is filled with festivals celebrating its rich culture and traditions. The Palio di Siena, a historic horse race, is an exhilarating event, while the Lucca Comics & Games festival attracts fans from around the world. The Festival delle Colline Toscane, with concerts, theater performances and exhibitions, is also certainly worth a visit. Seasonal food festivals, such as the White Truffle Fair in San Miniato, showcase the region’s culinary heritage.

Best time to travel

The best times to go camping in Tuscany are spring (April to June) and fall (September to October), when the weather is mild, the landscape is at its most picturesque, and the tourist crowds are smaller. These seasons also offer a host of local festivals and agricultural activities. In winter there are even less visitors and while it is cool, it will not get icy.

Regional specialities

Tuscan cuisine is celebrated for its simplicity and flavor, rooted in the "cucina povera" tradition. Enjoy dishes like ribollita (a hearty vegetable and bread soup), pappa al pomodoro, and the famous Bistecca alla Fiorentina, a juicy steak from Chianina beef. Olive oil and pecorino cheese are staples, along with wines such as Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino. Ribollita, a traditional vegetable stew, and cantuccini (pastries) are also popular specialties of the region.
