It is in this area that most of the offers of home rentals and holiday homes are concentrated.

When to visit the Tuscan region
Tuscany is always a great region to visit, as it is a region that has something to offer throughout the year. Summer is the favourite season for seaside resorts, and is the period when the towns of the Argentario and the Maremma are crowded with tourists from all over the world. In these summer months we see a slight increase in the average price of villa rental in Tuscany with a pool, which increase by 15%, but it is hard to say that there is a real ‘high’ season. This is because the cities, the countryside and the mountains of Tuscany can be visited at any time of the year. In addition to the artistic and architectural beauties of the Tuscan cities, those who go to Tuscany certainly do not want to miss the many popular events, that have very ancient origins and are featured in a number of the old centres. Among these the most famous are undoubtedly the Palio di Siena, which takes place in July and August, the Calcio Storico Fiorentino, on the occasion of the feast of St. John the Baptist on June 24 and, of course, the Carnival of Viareggio, with its floats and various shows that colour the promenade.
