Rainy days in Tuscany

We often think that rainy days are boring, especially when we’re travelling. Of course it is annoying but do you really go on holiday just for the weather?

The shorter the holiday, the more perfect it has to be! It happens rarely - especially in summer - but it might rain in Tuscany too! To avoid boredom, there is a lot to do and discover, even with bad weather... Tuscany is always a holiday worth!

Especially when travelling with children, you don't have to miss museums completely. In many places, exhibitions and also audio guides are specially designed for the little visitors. So the whole family gets to know the history of Tuscany!

So, what can you do in Tuscany when it rains?
