4 days walking, mostly on easy level paths at low altitude; some walking on quiet lanes with limited shade. 3 free days.
8 nights in 3-4 star hotels. All rooms have en suite facilities and each hotel has its own pool.
All breakfast and evening meals included.
The walking mainly follows reasonably flat strade bianche (white roads) with some asphalt lanes and partly shaded forest and valley trails. Walking boots are recommended.
The strade bianche are mainly exposed, affording excellent views but a sunhat is essential.
This trip is perfect for people who want fairly gentle walking exploring the Tuscan countryside. On most days the terrain is fairly flat although there are some reasonably long walks.
Those who love Italy, this area of Tuscany won't disappoint as it is scenically stunning - the rolling hills and San Gimignano's towers as a back drop are incredible.

In order to provide a more accurate grading system, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or split grade, for example Leisurely/Moderate. Occasionally, there are optional activities available en route, in this case the optional grade is indicated in brackets, for example Grade Challenging (climb Tough+). Clearly, conditions may differ from region-to-region or month-to-month and as such the information given on these pages is designed to act as a guide only. In all cases you should refer to the respective holiday's Trip Notes for further details.
