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
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.
A one week holiday in Tuscany combining guided walking and lessons in local cooking. We also have the opportunity to do some sightseeing Florence or Lucca.
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
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.
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.
John has been a compulsive traveller and walks leader since high school. Having completed the Three Peaks challenge of ascending Ben Nevis, Scafell and Snowdon within 24 hours he's also clearly got an adventurous streak. These days he leads mainly in Greece and Turkey with the odd trip to other destinations which have attracted his attention.
