Best Things To Do in Tuscany

Sipping wines and dipping bread into smooth olive oils is one of the main things to do in this Italian region. Luckily, there are numerous of ambient wineries to do this, like Ciacci Piccolomini d'Aragona in Montalcino to Castello del Trebbio in Florence. And speaking of Tuscan towns, there are a handful of little cities worth exploring -- Siena and Lucca to name a couple. Lastly, if you want to get a funny photo, a trip to the little town of Pisa with its tilting torre is a must.
