If you adore Italy and want a unique insight into one of its most beautiful and beguiling regions, then this is your chance to join fellow readers and our special guest - the popular TV presenter Alex Polizzi - an exclusive new 10-day trip to Tuscany. Alex, star of The Hotel Inspector, will be your guide to some of Florence's unforgettable sights, including the Piazza del Duomo, with Brunelleschi's remarkable cupola, the superb Franciscan Basilica of San Croce and the nearby Piazza della Signoria, one of the city's most photogenic civic spaces. After an extended break in this inspirational city, you will spend three nights exploring the irresistible Tuscan countryside, with visits to Siena and Pienza (June trip), whose cathedral famously featured in Zeffirelli's Romeo and Juliet, or to Lucca (September trip), encircled by 4km of perfectly preserved defensive walls dating from the 16th century. Nowadays, the walls form an attractive walkway which draws locals and visitors alike for a stroll, jog or bike ride, where all can savour panoramic views of the city.
