Guided Rambling Holidays
Eastern Tuscany, Italy
Gentle to moderate rambles with English speaking guides.
DATES: Saturday Sept 22 - 29, 2018
Our Eastern Tuscany walking holiday is
based for seven nights at a hotel near the ancient town of Cortona. This region of Italy abounds with history. In
600 BC Etruscan
civilization flourished here long before the Romans conquered. In medieval times Saint Francis was based here preaching
his message of harmony with nature.
Then the Renaissance brought a wealth of great artists and today, in
Arezzo, we find 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.
If you would like
two weeks in September you can combine Eastern Tuscany and Southern Tuscany holidays.
