Spring is perhaps the most beautiful season of the year. It’s the best time to travel and visit new places with its mild and pleasant climate. Today I want to tell you about the 5 things to do during the spring in Tuscany.

Every Sunday of the month you can visit the museum for free. In the Museum Uffizi in Florence, you can admire the “Primavera” of Botticelli, and “la Nascita di Venere”, “La Madonna del Cardellino” painted by Raffaello and many other outstanding works.
Go through the Tuscan hills
The landscapes of Tuscany are famous all over the world, spring is perhaps the most enjoyable and colorful. Nature is like a living picture, full of a thousand colors, scents and breathtaking scenery. If you love walking outdoors, you can take a part on foot, or by bicycle, the Via Francigena.
Taste the flavors
Once in Tuscany, it is impossible not to taste the traditional dishes like ribollita, the almond biscuits named “Cantuccini” with dessert wine, and Fiorentina steak.

Tuscany is also famous for its fine wines. Once you come here, in the land of Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vernaccia di San Gimignano, you must take part at a tasting of oils and wines. You can taste a variety of wines and discover hints of vanilla, licorice, berries and cherries.
