Tuscany is the notable region in the central western area of Italy. Not only is it known around the world for its quality wine, it also offers plenty for hostel travelers to experience.
Many parts of Tuscany have been labeled as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and even more display beauty and history. Italian is the official language, but spoken with a Tuscan dialect. The biggest tourist sites and cities are best accessed by train, bus, or tourist company. However, you may consider an auto rental if you'd like to focus on visiting vineyards.
Florence is the most popular destination in the area, and it's the home to more hostels than all the rest of Tuscany combined. Architecture goes hand-in-hand with the art of Tuscany. Brunelleschi's Dome is situated in the middle of Florence. The dome is a Renaissance feat in itself, but the mural inside the dome makes even more of a reason to visit. This is one of many historic cathedrals in Tuscany. Florence is also know for art. The most famous example of Tuscan art is Michelangelo's David, which can be found inside the Accademia Gallery. Another type of art is wood sculpture. Walk by any shops or street vendors and you're sure to find Pinocchio-inspired puppets!
Pisa is home to another cathedral known around the world. Rather, the cathedral's bell tower is well known: The Leaning Tower of Pisa. Although this will be one of the less ornate and the most botched-up piece of architecture you'll see in the region, the mistake has made it great. It's fun to climb, too!
Food in Italy is always an enjoyable experience, provided you can digest dairy and gluten. (If you do have a food intolerance, some restaurants may still be able to offer you modified dishes.) There are plenty of restaurants to enjoy the typical pizza and spaghetti, but there is also Tuscan-specific food. Look at the menu descriptions and talk to the waitstaff to find out their unique servings.
As Tuscany caters to both students and travelers, hostels are diverse and abundant. Some of the smaller cities have a more limited selection for hostels, but you're bound to find accommodations that fit your personal interests, your social needs, and your budget!
