Chianti Classic Walk

SanGimignano

This walking holiday is a stunner! A hotel-to-hotel walking holiday, you explore the timeless countryside between picturesque Volterra and the soaring towers of San Gimignano. You’ll feel as though you’re strolling through history as you effortlessly discover sleepy hilltop hamlets crowning sun dappled hills making for postcard-perfect views, verdant vineyards and panoramic picnic spots in fields ablaze with sunflowers, giving the walker a real taste of the Italian country.

Explore scenic walking on Etruscan trails and pilgrims’ paths; whilst you wander through the hills and vineyards, witness a country with wildlife in abundance.
Quintessential Italian landscapes: rolling hills, sunflowers, endless vines and hilltop hamlets are what you can expect on this holiday; this is for the relaxed walker, not the high mountain explorer; but with views like these and optional day trips to the ‘Super Tuscans’: Florence, Siena, Pisa and San Gimignano!, anyone can enjoy it her on the Chianti Classic Walk.

During you stay you will spend your nights at some exceptionally friendly family-run hotels, all with gorgeous swimming pools for that long deserved rest and relax at the end of a hard day walking around the beautiful Italian countryside. And don’t for a minute forget about the mouth-watering local cuisine; world famous wines on offer wherever you go!
