Start in Florence

Fall in love all over again – this time with the city of Florence. Learn all about Renaissance art, window-shop along the Via de’ Tornabuoni and then head away from the crowds to explore the less crowded Oltrarno.

 

Get the full flavour of the city at the Palazzo di Camugliano, an antique-packed ten bedroom Florentine palazzo complete with magnificent four-poster beds, frescoed ceilings and waiter-served breakfast.

Continue to the coast

Just 100km to the west of Florence, the region’s coastline boasts vast sandy beaches overlooked by chic coastal resorts. The lungomare at Viareggio is lined with shops, restaurants and gelaterie while up in the hills, top spots include the old town of Pietrasanta. The city of Lucca and its magnificent gardens and the mountain villages of the Garfagnana are close by.

 

The Locanda al Colle is an ultra-chic guesthouse, crammed with vintage and modern art, in the hills above Camaiore. A picture postcard outdoor pool, breakfast on the lavender-scented terrace and a near perfect location all add to the charm.
