Tuscany Walking Tours

Super Tuscans & Medieval Wonders

With lush rolling hills, medieval towns and meandering roads keeping it all together, both Tuscany and Umbria are a walker’s idyll. There is something eminently peaceful in wandering through hilltop towns that have stood watch here since the Middle Ages, passing vines tended by generations of winemakers, and savouring traditional cuisine made of the freshest local ingredients. Believe us, once you experience this medieval magic, you’ll never want to leave.

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.
