Join us for a fantastic Christmas holiday to Tuscany, staying in the picturesque town of Chianciano. We’ll enjoy a superb festive break, enjoy celebrations at our hotel with our fellow holidaymakers over Christmas, as well as visiting the charming towns of Pienza and Siena, beautiful Florence and discovering hidden Tuscany.

Tuscany is known for its landscapes and is regarded as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance. This stunning region boasts a number of fantastic museums, such as the Uffizi Gallery and the Pitti Palace Museum and Art Gallery.

Chianciano is located on a small hill and is known for its elegant Renaissance gateway into the town. The modern town has grown around the thermal springs and is the perfect place as a base for this holiday. We’ll stay at the Hotel Mizar, which is located close to the main square, Piazza Italia, and promises a warm, friendly welcome for all.

Our first included excursion will allow us to explore hidden Tuscany, as we take in its many hidden delights. We’ll make our way to the stunning Tuscan town of Cortona to admire its beautiful architecture and to learn more about its wonderful heritage.

On Christmas Eve, we’ll be treated to a great day out discovering the towns of Pienza and Siena, both of which are filled with excellent attractions. In the evening, sit down with your fellow holidaymakers to enjoy an exciting and sumptuous gala dinner.

Relax and make yourself at home on Christmas Day, as we celebrate with a festive Christmas lunch and a fantastic dinner. On Boxing Day, we’ll travel to Florence, famous for being the birthplace of the Renaissance. Take in the elegant charm of this splendid city during our time at leisure.
