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
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
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!
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.
