The climate in Tuscany is generally mild, the coast and valleys tend to have hotter summers than the hills or mountains. Coolest months are January and February, with January being a bit cooler.
How to get there?
Italy is easily accessible from all parts of the UK including London, Bristol, Manchester and Birmingham with low cost airlines flying frequently. From London, the flight duration is 2hr20mins and usually the cheapest city to fly into is Milan or Rome. From all airports, airport shuttle buses are organised to take travellers to the city centres, alternatively it is also easy to hire a car or book a taxi to get to your holiday rentals. Some of the Spanish apartments and holiday villas can be in more rural areas so we would advise that you hire a car. Even if public transport is available, having a car gives you the opportunity to explore the region at your own pace.
Food and restaurants in Italy
The historic cities, snow-caped mountains and pristine coastlines aren't the only reason we recommend you rent an apartment in Italy, as they also have some of the world's best pizzas, pastas and wines. Booking holiday houses in Italy, means that every night you can find a delicious new Italian restaurant that serves typical Italian food in local areas and then wander on to find a gelato. Tuscany is famous for its salami, and Sicily for its iconic pasta dishes. From being in a city or countryside village, there will be a range of places to eat, so enjoy the laid-back ambience and traditional atmosphere. Staying at a holiday rental in Italy will give you the chance to make some flavoursome Italian food as all of the apartments are equipped with kitchens for self-catering.
