We know Tuscany is not a country. We also know it is one of the finest areas for walking in Europe. From the open grassy ridges of the Appenine watershed to the strolling on the city walls of Lucca, Tuscany has walking to suit every taste. In Tuscany you can enjoy as much variety as in any country in Europe.
Our Tuscany Walking Holidays
Mountain walking from San Marcello
San Marcello in Tuscany is our popular centre in the Apennine Mountains. Here the summits reach almost 2000m. In spring masses of wild flowers abound, the autumn offers beautiful colours and generally clear skies throughout October.
Two weeks, two centres, exploring the Apuan and Apennine mountains.
NEW In unspoilt north-western Tuscany, shielded from the outside world by a horse-shoe of mountains (the Apennines to the north and east and the Apuan Alps to the west) lies the lovely Garfagnana Valley. We will explore one of the most beautiful walking areas in Italy. The walking is outstanding.
Walking and cooking.
A one week holiday in Tuscany. During our stay we’ll mix easy walking, some sightseeing and practice at Italian cooking. The walking is fantastically varied with walks along open grassy ridges on the Appenine Watershed and relaxed strolls through historic villages. We also have the opportunity to do some sightseeing in Florence or Lucca.
11 days enjoying the fantastically varied Tuscan countryside.
A wonderful variety of walking and sightseeing experiences on this two-centre Tuscan holiday featuring the high hill-town of Volterra near the medieval Manhattan of San Gimignano. Our second centre is the exquisite, hill-town of Massa Marittima
A feast of art, history, culture and countryside.
It was in Tuscany that the art and knowledge of the ancient world was rediscovered and reinterpreted in the middle ages. From our centre in Montecatini Terme, an easy and relaxed spa town we can explore some of the finest renaissance cities.
Cooking and walking amongst 'Le Dieci Castelli'
NEW Enjoy a new twist on our classic ‘Tuscan Lifestyle’ formula and immerse yourself in all things Tuscan with cookery lessons in our historic hotel and walks amongst ‘Le Dieci Castella’, ten medieval hilltop villages left behind by the passage of time. These villages represent the essence of the ancient life, where old crafts and traditions survive modern technology and the frenzy of everyday life. We’ll squeeze in as many as we can!
Art and countryside under the Tuscan sun.
NEW Tuscany was evidently at the front of the queue when things of beauty were handed out. The landscapes seem to have been plucked from a Renaissance painting and many art works still reside in the buildings for which they were created. Splitting our time between Siena and Florence we enjoy an aesthetic feast.
