Spring is a pleasant time to visit Tuscany and its beauties. If you are planning your upcoming holiday and you haven’t booked your flight ticket yet, I would recommend you to think about a spring break in Tuscany.

Spring means flowers. You can open your window and see the green grass of your garden, trees in bloom, wildflowers as daisies, poppies or primroses all around. A sense of wellness immediately infects you, making you feel good and full of energy.

You have many good reasons to think about a spring break in Italy, especially a holiday in Tuscany.

Why Should I plan a spring break in Tuscany

  • Being out of the high season, you can find cheaper flights (read more about how to fly to Tuscany) and good offers for a room in hotel, residence, B&B or Agriturismo in Tuscany.

  • The weather and the temperature are nice. It’s not too hot as in summer, but not too cold as in winter. And you could easily walk under the sun without getting stressed and wet.
  • Having more hours of light, you could go around discovering little-known destinations as Lunigiana or Garfagnana for example.

  • There are not as many tourists as during summer time. During your spring break in Tuscany, you can better enjoy the visit of the major touristic attractions as Florence, Lucca, Siena, San GimignanoChianti and Val d’Orcia.
  • You can visit a vineyard and make a tour with wine and olive oil tasting. Or visit a bee farm and learn how bees make honey. May is the harvest month for honey.

  • If you have time you can reach the coastline of Versilia, Etruscan Coast or Maremma, have lunch there, enjoy an espresso or a gelato staring at the Mediterranean sea and its islands. Later, get off your shoes and walk along the beach feeling the sand and the fresh water under your feet. It’s a great idea for your spring break, trust me!

  • The land is full of different colors: the yellow of rapeseed fields, the red of puppies, the mix of fruit tree blossoms, the green of the grass and hills. A beautiful rainbow of colors that deserves to be seen.

  • You can enjoy seasonal vegetables as i.e. the broad bean. We usually taste it with pecorino cheese and ham during our Sunday breaks with family and friends along the river or somewhere in the countryside, away from the noise of the town.

  • Small villages start to organize their Sagra, a typical country-fair usually dedicated to the traditional dish of the town. You can sit under a big cabana, share huge long tables with other people and try the local cuisine, made by the grandmothers of the village.
