Tuscany, home to famous artwork, superb cuisine, and impressive medieval towns, is widely regarded as one of the loveliest regions in Italy and a wonderful place to explore on foot. Hiking through a timeless landscape along back roads and paths that wind through vineyards and past ancient farmhouses, shopping for locally produced specialties, relaxing in romantic outdoor cafes, or exploring the art and architecture of the well known towns of Florence and Siena, Tuscany is truly a feast for all the senses. Maximum group size: 14
What's not included: Travel to Rome and from Florence, alcoholic beverages, (aside from wine tastings) snacks, guide gratuities, and travel insurance.
Women who want to combine hiking the Tuscan countryside with visits to some of its most famous sites and cities. Tuscany is very hilly and women should be comfortable walking up and down hills on well-marked paths, with occasional steep uphill grades, for five to six hours a day (usually split between the morning and afternoon). We have given it a split rating for the 2 longer days when you have a choice whether to walk or ride in the afternoon. Rating: 1 2 [3/4] 5
On this trip we combine hiking in Tuscany and the surrounding area with soaking in Italian culture. In addition to hiking dirt and stone paths and stairways, we'll have a cooking class and a wine tastings; time to explore the charming towns; and lots of opportunity to savor Italian food
We will stay in modern tourist class hotels and agriturismos. Agriturismos are working farms that accommodate guests and provide the opportunity for a close up view of rural Italian life. All offer double rooms with private bathrooms.
