Those who wish to escape the city in favour of the vast, unspoilt Tuscan countryside can choose from hotels in more rural areas. Tuscany is a well-regarded winemaking region and wide expanses of vineyards can be seen for miles around, including those of the world famous Chianti grape variety. Tourists have the opportunity to visit traditional farms, orchards and vineyards for unique gastronomic experiences as well as the chance to hire bikes or take hikes through the more mountainous landscapes.
Tourists can also escape to the seaside in order to enjoy the Italian sun and cool off in the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea. In addition to idyllic white sand beaches, the Tuscan coastline offers opportunities for scuba-diving, snorkelling and other water-sports from its popular resorts. There are also numerous traditional fishing villages offering freshly caught seafood from quaint harbours dotted along the coast, as well as boat excursions to various islands such as Capraia and Portoferraio.
