Reviews          

For me this was a great trip, it provided wonderful walking with delightful food and breathtaking panoramic views. A fantastic day's walking accompanied by a nice hearty meal and glass of wine at the end of day was a real treat.

View All

The gentle hills and valleys of Chianti provide a landscape ripe for exploring on foot. Starting out from charming Greve in Chianti, the first three days are spent walking quiet paths along forest ridges and through the picturesque villages, rolling fields, vineyards and silver olive groves that characterise the Tuscan landscape. A highlight is the ascent of Monte San Michele, 893m, the highest peak in Chianti with magnificent vistas as we approach the summit. We stay in two peaceful hillside properties each offering panoramic views, a swimming pool and a very warm welcome.

The medieval city of Siena beckons, and here we spend two nights based in the vibrant historic centre. There is plenty of time to wander the labyrinth of narrow streets and soak up the atmosphere in the beautiful Piazzo del Campo. Heading out from Siena we take a delightful circular walk through the picture-postcard countryside beneath the famous towers of San Gimignano.

Our holiday in Tuscany concludes with a walk in the hills above Florence before descending into the ancient streets of the great city itself.
