The Walking In Tuscany trip starts and ends in Pontecosi. It is a trekking trip that takes 8 days taking you through Careggine, Pruno and Casone in Italy. Walking In Tuscany is a guided small group trip that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

The Garfagnana region, close to the gems of Lucca, Pisa and Florence, is one of Italy's best-kept secrets and the perfect base for guided walking holidays in Tuscany. The area’s astonishing landscape is a far cry from the rolling hills of southern Tuscany as it lies between the striking peaks of the Alpi Apuane and Apennine mountain ranges, providing us with ample hiking opportunities which, along with picturesque mountaintop and lakeside villages and the warm local hospitality, make for a wonderful trip. Certain dates include more challenging trekking and incorporate one night in a mountain refuge.

Walking in Tuscany
5 - Excellent
“This is our 3rd walking & trekking trip with Exodus and what a fabulous trip it was. Staying in the beautiful family run Braccicorti Lodge, drinking their home made Grappa and chatting and laughing together as a group. We were 4 couples and 3 singles and everyone enjoyed each other's company. Some were faster than others but our guide ensured we operated as a group. My husband would have liked another week sitting by the swimming pool.”
Just brilliant!!

Hill climbing in Tuscany
4 - Very Good
“No matter what the title says, this is not, in my opinion, a walking holiday. With a walking holiday you envisage rolling hills, pretty villages. In reality the first day of walking was an ascent of several hundred metres up a steep unending hill, and in the main, it continued that way throughout the trip. If you want a walking holiday, don't do what I did. I didn't read the notes in detail !! I didn't !! I saw the word walking and looked at the notes without actually reading the notes. Two or three of my fellow travellers made the same mistake. I am told that Walking in Prosecco might be more your style if you want a more comfortable walk and that's what I will try next (thanks Sara)”
Fantastic all round
