Falling in Love in Tuscany

» Posted

F Pienza, the small Renaissance town near Siena, has dedicated some of its streets to love. Kiss Street and Street of Love are just two of them. Here, in the harmonious maze of alleys Via del Bacio, dell’Amore, Del Buio, and Della Fortuna help the romantic ones that enjoy walking hand in hand to get lost in this romantic town full of history, poetry and love. A village that caught even Franco Zeffirelli’s heart in 1968, who chose Pienza as the set of the greatest love story ever known, that of “Romeo and Juliet”.
Between Siena and Arezzo is the town of Lucignano, a small medieval town overlooking the Valdichiana, populated by just three thousand people and known for its beauty and a great treasure: the Tree of love, a true masterpiece of Gothic art decorated with coral, enamel and rock crystal. It is century-old tradition for couples to promise each other eternal love and happiness in front of this masterpiece.
For those who love to be lulled by the magnetism of the sea looking at the waves crush against the cliff and get lost in the smells of an island, the Giglio Island is a must-go. Lovers traditionally choose the Giglio Island to spend romantic holidays where they can share the reciprocal love for its wonderful natural environment. The charm of old stone houses and city walls, the winding alleys that suddenly open up in a small square where bright flowers hang from windowsills and peak from lush gardens are just few of the elements that make of this one of the most romantic places in the world. Located in the middle of the Mediterranean, the island sports the “lighthouse of lovers”, immersed in a pine forest. From atop you can get lost in the scents of nature and let the feelings get entangled with the sea breeze. Unfortunately no overnight stay is available at the lighthouse.
Castiglioncello near Livorno offers its pine forest descending on the beach front. From here a long road that leads almost to Caletta starts. Following the sea waterfront, the road is accompanied by the lights of fishing boats and the moonlight, both reflecting on the dark sea.
Florence could not be missing from this romantic Tuscan places review. At least once in your lifetime you fill your eyes with the image of the lights of Florence reflected in the Arno river from Ponte Vecchio. During the day the harmonious Renaissance city palaces get reflected on the river, and at night Ponte Vecchio becomes the place from where to observe San Miniato, just above Piazzale Michelangelo. The romantic side of Florence continues through its alleys, the mazes of the Boboli Gardens, and in Fiesole, dominating Florence from atop, a unique spectacle.
