4 days centre-based gentle walking; low altitude throughout.
7 nights renovated farmhouse with swimming pool and en suite facilities.
New Accommodation for 2013 - This year we stay at Villa Casalta, a family run farmhouse, where both wine and olive oil are produced locally and our food on the trip is bought fresh at local stores and markets.
All breakfasts, 5 dinners and 3 wine tastings included.
Grade: A/B or leisurely/moderate
The area is quite hilly and the majority of drives, although short, follow twisty mountain roads through wooden areas.
Tuscany can also be very hot, possibly high 30s in the summer.
During the days with walking included, the terrain and type of path track will vary from manmade paved tracks, tarmac, forest trails to gravel.
The walks are not technically difficult although some ascents and descents should be expected, so a reasonable amount of fitness is required.
Normal group size and age
Normally 6 to 16, plus leader. Minimum age 18.
The vast majority of Exodus adventures are adult group holidays. Groups are always small in size. We strongly believe that this adherence to small groups means a better experience for all; more time with your guide, less waiting around and a reduced impact on the communities and environments visited.
Each group is generally made up of like-minded travellers - with singles, couples and friends all joining in together. All these trips are suitable for single travellers, but if you prefer to travel with clients booking individually, please see our Solo Departures page.
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.
