One of the most spectacular parts of Italy is Tuscany; with its rolling hills, mountains and coastal walks, it provides everything that the holiday walker needs. This is a fully guided walking holiday with gentle walking and relaxed sightseeing for everyone to enjoy. Not only that but this holiday provides the opportunity to visit the world’s most wonderful art cities, including Florence, Siena, Lucca, San Gimignano.

But if visiting cities isn’t what your walking holidays entirely revolve around then fear not, our mountain and coastal walks; hillside rambles will put your natural landscape sightseeing eyes through their paces; we also include trips to the Cinque Terre and Apennines.
