Roadtrip in Tuscany with an RV – Ep 2
This is the second part of our Honeymoon road trip in TUSCANY
Florence is the capital of Tuscany and at the end of the 14th Century was ruled by a few leading families who not only financed churches but also competed in building magnificent palaces.
Of these, the Medici family proved to be the most powerful.
It is a city of art and joie de vivre and past home of important artists and sculptors such as Donatello, Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci, plus the writers Dante and Boccaccio, not to mention the scientist, Galileo Galilei.
Lucca, one of Tuscany’s most important historical towns, rises from the lower reaches of the Serchio river, on a former swamp.
The precarious imperfection of the Leaning Tower of Pisa is in stark contrast to the grandiose palaces and religious buildings of the Medici family and the natural contours of the hills.
Olive groves and vineyards line the gentle hilly landscape around the picturesque, Vinci. The birthplace of Leonardo is a simple farmhouse above the square in which only a modest bust portrays this universal genius.
Certaldo is a Middle Age village built of red brick and was the birthplace of the author, Giovanni Boccaccio.
The heart of Tuscany lies around the provincial capital of Siena, a Gothic city of great artistry.
Its squares and streets, most of the residential quarter and noble palaces, the cathedral and the church, date back to the 13th and 14th centuries. History and culture combined with the beauty of nature…Tuscany has it all!

The Best Months to Visit Tuscany
So when is the best time to travel to Tuscany, to rent a villa in Tuscany and to taste the wine and incredible food?
May is a lovely month in the Tuscan countryside. Spring is well under way and the fresh green leaves of the grape vines and olive trees are stunning. There is a special light in May and the Tuscans have woken up. They are ready to continue their dolce vita. There are less tourists in May than in the summer months of course. I personally like the tourists.
Not the crowds, but the ones you notice really stepping out of themselves and being awed by the beauty everywhere. After all I am regrettably not a Tuscan and therefore would be considered a tourist.
June is warmer and can get quite hot however it is also a good month in Tuscany. There are always outdoor festivals going on in June.
Mid-September into early October is a fantastic time to visit. The days are warm and the nights are cool.
Now you can experience the grape harvest called the vendemma. Every town seems to have a harvest festival.
There is great celebration in the air. There are opportunities to go truffle and mushroom hunting and the food is fantastic! Try a truffle pasta or Porcini mushroom pasta, they are incredible!
July and August
I have always loved July in Tuscany. Everyone is celebrating life and getting back to the basics, what’s important. Family, friends…enjoying life! Try taking a nap during the hot afternoon hours as the Tuscans do, it is quite refreshing!
It can be very hot reaching to 40 degrees Celsius but it is a dry heat and a little shade does wonders for your refreshment. (a word to the overheated, try to avoid Florence during a heat wave, because the city lies in a valley and therefore the heat is trapped and of course the city is made of stone which both absorbs and reflects the heat). During the summer months there are many festivals and concerts to choose from
