ART AND CULTURE HOLIDAYS IN TUSCANY

Ostuni città bianca

Tuscany is known the world over as a wonderful, relaxing place to spend a holiday, and if you're an art lover then it's verging on a paradise.

The capital Florence is packed full of Renaissance architecture and world-class art museums, and is also a beautiful and friendly city spend a break in.
Top of the list of places to visit for holidaying art lovers is probably the Uffizi Museum, featuring hundreds of priceless works by artists including Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Raffaello amongst many others. Also on the must-see list is is the Accademica Gallery, home of probably the world's most famous sculpture: Michaelangelo's David. This iconic figure is recognised from pictures everywhere, and is even more impressive seen close up, standing an imposing 4m tall.

The nearby city of Pisa is of course famous for its leaning tower, well worth a visit despite the crowds, but Pisa also has many other quieter places of interest to the art lover. The Lungarno Simonelli Museum has a large collection of Roman treasures, including riverboats, while the Museo Nazionale di San Matteo is home to an impressive array of paintings and sculptures representing Tuscany through the centuries.

For opera lovers, the month-long Puccini Festival is held every August at an outdoor venue in Torre del Lago, near Lucca. Some of the most accomplished names in modern opera have performed here, and the even is attended by thousands of people from all over the world. For fans of more modern music, the Lucca Summer Festival takes place every July and has featured contemporary artists as diverse as Elton John and Arcade Fire.
