It’s known for its gorgeous countryside, vineyards, old-world charm and coastline. One of the most challenging aspects of planning a trip to this large region is narrowing down the choices especially among the myriad hotel options, ranging from basic bed-and-breakfasts to high-luxury resorts.

Indagare’s Amelia Osborne Scott
“In Tuscany, whenever possible, visit a weekly market, small family-run food stores and farm shops and put together picnic meals of crusty bread, pecorino, prosciutto, tomatoes, olives and wine. These are always my favorite meals when I’m in Italy. Alternatively, appeal to a winery, restaurant or your hotel for a small spuntino, or snack, which will inevitably result in a great meal of nibbles.”

Indagare Insider, Trudie Styler
“Our ideal morning in Tuscany is a very laid-back one! Everyone will trickle down for a buffet breakfast on the terrace. Sting is often first up and practicing guitar in his favorite shady spot. We’ll chat and read, sunbathe, and Sting and I usually work out, doing some yoga or Pilates. At lunchtime everyone convenes at the great long table under the huge oak tree for a lunch of pastas and salads.”
