The enthusiastic reviews of our Italian walking tour in the fall of 2022 have convinced us to offer it again in 2024. The magnificent landscapes of Tuscany and the Italian Riviera continue to inspire us to slow down, take deep breaths, and fully immerse ourselves in a distinctive cultural experience. This tour offers a unique way to explore major cities, lesser-known Tuscan villages, and the coastline of the Ligurian Sea. From delectable cuisine, wines, and cheeses to stunning cathedrals and medieval walls, we will uncover the hidden treasures of this beloved corner of Italy through a series of guided walks in Florence, Montalcino, Siena, Colle di Val d’Elsa, and more.

We'll rise each day to the murmur of local life in picturesque Italian towns before we stroll along lightly traveled, cypress-lined byways. As we make our way from Florence to Genoa, we will visit significant historical sites and architectural treasures, such as the village of Pienza, the Abbey of Isola, and the cliffside villages of the Cinque Terre. Each day will offer the opportunity to dine in charming trattorias and ristorantes off the beaten path. Carefully selected small hotels and inns, where hospitality flourishes, will ensure that our group is well rested for daily walks of three to six miles.

Our walking tours are perfect for those seeking an unparalleled sensory experience and a more active itinerary. With expert guides, wine with every dinner, and transportation for those who wish to rest between destinations, the Walking in Tuscany program promises an unforgettable adventure in central Italy. This private W&L tour is limited to just 26 travelers, so be sure to reserve your spot quickly for this highly sought- after departure.

Options to extend your tour include a pre-trip program in Florence and a post-trip program in Rome.
