Top 3 Scenic Routes in Tuscany

None can deny that Tuscany is famous for many things – but when it comes to stunning vistas and natural beauty, it’s certainly one of the best places to go in this part of central Italy.

There’s a good chance that you’ll get to see many amazing landscapes during your travels between cities, and whether you go by car or choose to ride on a bike to savor the spectacular sights, you’re sure to be impressed. During your stay, be sure to check out a few of these stunning scenic drives to ensure that you don’t miss out on experiencing the true beauty of Tuscany.

Take a detour through Chianti

If you’re planning to travel from Monteriggioni to Florence, it may be worth your while to travel off the main road towards the village of Castelina, in Chianti. There are several great vineyards here, so you may want to take a few breaks from your journey for a little wine tasting.

You should definitely check out Castello di Brolio and Castello Ricasoli (both of which are vineyards that are famous for producing quality wine), to try some of their delicious produce and to see the beautiful landscapes on the scenic drive along the way.

Drive along route SS438

If you’re looking for a picturesque route to drive through, one that offers stunning views of the landscapes that Tuscany is famous for, be sure to go along route SS348. This drive will give you a chance to see the beautiful plains, cypress lanes, and hills that make this region so breathtaking.

While beautiful all year round, you may want to travel on this route during the spring. This is because the landscape changes with the seasons – and this time of year offers views of magnificent green, where summer often colors the landscape a sunburned yellow. Since this route isn’t too long, it’s perfect for those who just want to do a little sightseeing on their way to the next destination of their trip.

Val d’orcia valley

There are a number of routes that go through Val d’Orcia, leading from one stunning city to another. Almost anyone will be awestruck by the beauty of the valley; whether they’re driving through for the scenic atmosphere, or to get to one of the nearby cities. Pienza, Montalcino, and Quirico d’Orcia are just a few of the cities that can be accessed from this valley.

With a number of great routes, and several villages along the roads, you’ll have many great opportunities to take a break from your travels and explore the beauty and culture to be found here. The road from La Foce to Radifocani in particular is a beautiful route, and is home to a truly magnificent cypress alley.
