The beautiful Tuscany region of Italy has always attracted both domestic and foreign visitors in search of a relaxing vacation spot. Many towns and villages in the region became well known as spa resorts, and whilst they may have lost their appeal with the younger generation of Italians, they still remain interesting places for people from outside of the country. For those people that may wish to visit such a town, one vacation suggestion is to stay in a holiday rental villa in Monsummano Terme. This well furnished and decorated villa, complete with fully equipped kitchen, is ideally based as a place from which to not only enjoy the spas, but also to explore a little more of the Tuscan countryside.
The emphasis of a holiday in Monsummano Terme is more on relaxing and taking it easy than going all out in search of leisure activities. There are, however, a few activities to choose from for those that wish to. Golf is one such pastime that can be enjoyed in the area, and hiking and cycling are both great ways to see a little more of the countryside at a slower pace. For those that would like a swim or would like to try other water sports, an hour’s drive would see them arrive on the Italian west coast.
The self catering accommodation in Monsummano Terme is an ideal base from which to see some of the more interesting attractions that Tuscany has to offer. Florence, the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, is one such place that can be visited on a day trip. Some of the main attractions here include the Uffizi museum, the Duomo di Firenza and Giottos Tower. Most of the major attractions are within easy walking distance of one another, and the Firenze card allows free access to the city’s museums for an initial cost. Other suggested day trips out from the holiday rental villa in Monsummano Terme include visiting the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the fascinating town of Lucca.
Most people choose to take a holiday in Monsummano Terme during the summer months when the weather is at its warmest. Between May and September, average daily highs of 27 degrees Celsius are commonplace, which compares to average daily lows of 3 degrees during the winter. The wettest month of the year is November with over 100mm falling, and the driest month is July with just 40mm falling.
The nearest airport to the holiday rental villa in Monsummano Terme is Pisa Galileo Galilei International Airport (PSA) in Pisa. It offers many connections with European cities, and holidaymakers from the UK might like to make use of British Airways flights from London Heathrow (LHR) and London Gatwick (LGW).
