Tuscany Guided Walking Tour - Trip Overview

During our walking tour of Tuscany you are sure to lose your sense of time as you meander through fields of red poppies and sunflowers scattered within the fertile farmlands. Then spoil yourself with traditional Tuscan cuisine and learn about the art of wine, honey and olive oil production.
We fully explored this region best known as the heart of the Renaissance, from the memorable inns, farm stays and converted palaces we stay. Savor full course meals and witness a cultural history dating back to the days of Italy's original inhabitants-the Etruscans. Walking in Tuscany Siena
Days 1-2: Chianti Classico Farm Stay:
From a beautifully restored Tuscan farmhouse/winery, walk along quiet roads to the three villages that formed the Chianti Alliance centuries ago. Visit the forgotten abbeys and hamlets then enjoy a private winery tour and taste their supple reds, fresh honeys and rich olive oil. Relax by the vanishing edge pool spilling into the countryside of endless vineyards and finish your second day's walk with a lesson in simplicity of Tuscan cooking.

Days 3-4: Abbeys, Saffron & Pilgrim Trails:
The Etruscan past reveals itself en route to the medieval skyscrapers of San Gimignano. Climb the towers, shop or explore before dining in this medieval center. The original Etruscan salt road leads to vase spectacular views and an ancient fortress surrounded by crumbling towers.

Days 5-6 or 7: Pecorino Cheeses, Brunello Wines & Il Palio
Walk through a strange landscape known as “crete,” a bare, ash gray soil of deeply fissured hills and into the land of Brunello wines, one of Italy’s most prestigious. A wine tasting is scheduled. Along our path we visit the secluded abbeys and quaintly preserved hamlets. Our longer option includes a city tour and night in Siena as well as a visit and Chianti tasting at Castle di Brolio.
