The Tuscany on Foot tour starts in Volterra and ends in Siena. The Tuscany on Foot is a walking tour that takes 7 days taking you from Volterra to Siena and through other destinations in Italy.

Discover the stunning Tuscan countryside on foot. This walk threads together some of the most attractive towns and villages in Tuscany in an eloquent procession. It is a perfect introduction to the region and for people who love museums and galleries, Gothic and Romanesque architecture, there is plenty to see and do. You have plenty of time for attraction visits on most days. However the emphasis of the tour is to enjoy the countryside, the rolling vineyards, the poppies in spring and the wild cyclamen in autumn. Most of all, many of the views have changed little for hundreds of years. This is a relatively gentle tour that is suitable for those who are new to walking tours. More experienced walkers will also enjoy the classic Tuscan landscape of small but sometimes steep hills, olive groves and vineyards. We pass close to the classic wine-growing region of the Vernacchi and Chianti and visit the historic towns of Volterra, San Gimignano (with its famous towers), Colle Val d’Elsa and Siena. There is also an opportunity to visit Pisa with its famous attractions and if you decide to extend the tour by a day or two you can visit the celebrated city of Florence. The walking takes in classic Tuscan landscapes and as most days are not too long, you will have plenty of time to sightsee, or picnic.

“Beautiful place to walk at the end of May 2019 - wild flowers everywhere and even saw to wild boar families prancing along the edge of a field. Trip preparations, sherpa service, and extra contextual notes were fabulous.”

“We had a lovely time and thoroughly enjoyed the whole walk. The tour was correctly graded and classify for beginners. The hours/distances covered each day were roughly as expected. Route notes and maps good. At times the distances were over or understated and giving times to cover distance has problems with different walking paces.”
