One of the best things about Florence in August is its proximity to Tuscany's beaches, which offer a unique and varied combination of sandy beaches and shaded alpine woods, as well as venues for sport and fun in the sun and a roaring party scene that can easily rival that of Spain's Ibiza or Greece's Mykonos. Looking for a low-key stroll down a palm-lined promenade? Almost every town boasts a lungomare perfect for people watching and catching a breeze. Savour a multi-flavoured gelato, take a leisurely bike ride or nature excursion through the woods just minutes from the seaside action. The seaside in Tuscany is all this and much more!
