Best Summer holiday: 4 Star Week in Tuscany in August, €332pp

holiday deals to Tuscany

Explore the stunning region of Tuscany this summer. Airfares are terrific value in July and August and hotel prices are reasonable too! I found return flights for €128 on the 23rd of August from Dublin and   €107 on the 22nd of August from Cork.

A seven-night stay in the Hotel Ercolini & Savi is just €225 per person, making the total cost just €332 per person – this is incredible value for a Summer holiday in Italy. This 4-star hotel is top-rated but doesn’t have a swimming pool, however, I found the Da Vinci Hotel which is only €413 per person for seven nights, including flights. 


I stayed in the pretty town of Montecatini many years ago and it is ideally located to explore the nearby town of Lucca and the cities of Florence and Sienna. There is a train service from Pisa airport, or you can pre-book transfers, but I recommend car hire if you want to explore Tuscany fully.

P.S. Airfares are low throughout the year to Pisa so if the dates don’t suit below, simply edit the search to suit your requirements.
