Details of Tuscany Hilltop Towns Walking Tour May 8-15, 2016, Siena, Italy Vacation Rentals Details for Tuscany Hilltop Towns Walking Tour May 8-15, 2016

Active Adventure


You don't have to be a serious hiker to join this tour. On average we walk 5-6 miles every day with a comfortable pace.
Trip rating 2+ (On a base of 1=easy to 5=strenuous).

Duration: 8-day trip begins in Siena and ends in Chiusi - Chianciano Terme train station that easily connects you to Rome (South) or Florence or Milan (North).

Typical Day


An average day of the trip
On a typical day you hike/walk with your guide in the morning for 3 hours, then we stop at a restaurant or farmhouse for lunch (lunch can last 1hour and half). We serve local food and wines as we believe that food plays an important role in the enjoyment of Tuscany.
In the afternoon there might be some more walking or city stroll. Around 5pm your guide will take you back to the hotel.
Before dinner you will be able to rest a couple of hours.
Dinner will be served in a restaurant in town that you will be able to easily reach on foot. At dinner the guide will not be with you. This is why we planned to have all the hotels in the town centers and pedestrian areas.
Local wine is always included for lunch or dinner. We serve vino della casa (house wine) as the quality of local house wines is very high. Not by chance this part of Tuscany is one of the most famous wine making area in Italy (Chianti Classico, Brunello, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano)

Gianni, guide and trip organizer (with a degree in geology)

I am 45 years old and I live in Siena, a beautiful medieval town about one hour south of Florence. Geology is my background (Ph.D.) but to me life is about more than an academic degree. Music, cooking and photographing are my passions. I consider myself lucky to be able to combine all my passions into my travel business. I have been a certified guide for nature walks since 1999. After working many years as a guide and also in the back stage of the travel industry for foreign walking tour companies, I earned my Tour Organizer business license. Let me organize your vacation to Tuscany and other parts of Italy. It’s going to be smooth, stimulating and memorable, mostly because my associate guides are professional, fun and focused on your enjoyment.
