Guided Rambling Holidays

Eastern Tuscany,  Italy

Gentle to moderate rambles with English speaking guides.

DATES  2017         Sat Sept 23 - 30

Our Eastern Tuscany walking holiday is based for seven nights in a hotel at Cortona. On our rambles we explore beautiful countryside as well as fascinating towns like Arezzo and Assisi. This region of Italy abounds with history.  Etruscan civilization flourished in ancient times. The Romans conquered bringing roads and theatres. In medieval times Saint Francis preached at Assisi. The Renaissance brought a wealth of great artists and today, in Arezzo, is the fresco "Legend of the True Cross" painted in the XV century and considered one of the highest achievements of Italian art. 

In the spirit of St Francis, this region's nature reserves are wonderful for walking. Quiet country roads link medieval villages where we stop to explore. We see many artistic and historic sites; the spiritual monuments of Assisi; thousand-year-old Etruscan towns  and villages amid endless Tuscan vineyards.

This walking holiday is "single-centred" which means we stay in one hotel for the week (no packing and unpacking). Our hotel was originally a 12th century monastery which has been converted to a lovely three star hotel. Rooms have private bathroom and are very comfortable but the hotel retains its old world atmosphere with peaceful gardens and its own wine cellar.
