A few days ago, the famous travel guide Lonely Planet announced the release of its new publication, the Ultimate Travelist, which collects the five hundred places on earth to see at all costs. I quickly read the list to find traces of Tuscany and finally, I found them.
I am happy that a bit of Tuscany has been considered in this list full of the amazing scenery of nature, breathtaking landscapes, and beautiful monuments across the whole world.
So, planning your future holidays do not forget to insert in your bucket list the following wonders of Tuscany chosen by Lonely Planet Guide.
The Tuscan wonders selected by the Lonely Planet
Duomo di Firenze (66)
The cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore in the heart of Florence with its gothic facade, the magnificent Dome by Brunelleschi, and the Giotto bell tower.
Uffizi Gallery in Florence (89)
One of the most famous museums in the world, the Uffizi guards priceless pieces of art made by Michelangelo Buonarroti, Titian, Botticelli, and Leonardo da Vinci.
San Gimignano Towers (205)
The surviving fourteen towers earn San Gimignano the appellation of Manhattan of Tuscany. Approaching the town the skyline is really cool.
Piazza del Campo of Siena (229)
The beating heart of this romantic and historical city that twice a year hosts the famous racing horse, the Palio. Read here about the spectacular Duomo and how to visit it.
The leaning tower of Pisa (493)
The Campanile, the symbol of the town of Pisa, is famous worldwide for its unbelievable tilt. Together with the Cathedral and the Baptistery, they form the beautiful Miracle Square.
I also add another famous Italian place that it’s only a few miles away from the northern border of Tuscany.
Cinque Terre (241)
The legendary stretch of the Italian Riviera with its five spectacular villages overlooking the sea, their typical colored houses, amazing sceneries, and vineyards on perilously steep slopes.
