Top 10 Romantic Things To Do In Tuscany

Destination(s): Siena

Tuscany is by definition a romantic spot to visit, so just breathing that perfumed Italian air should already have you in a romantic mood. Add the culturally significant buildings and all the art to be found in the area and you get a great overall experience for you and your special someone. However, there are some highlights that you should definitely not miss, and wine does have something to do with them, so try paying a visit to Badia a Coltibuono to see some of the original Chianti vineyards and allow yourself the pleasure to take part in the Florence Chocolate and Wine Tasting, which obviously needs no further introduction. There are also some wonderful delights for your sight in Tuscany, out of which we mention the Giardino dell'Orticoltura, an impressive glass pavilion that is home to lots of exotic plants, and the Sculpture Park of Chianti, that is all about the art and not about the wine, just for a short change. read more about Top 10 Romantic Things To Do In Tuscany
