Walkers' World 
Guided Rambling Holidays in
Southern Tuscany

Terrain
 

Southern Tuscany offers easy to moderate rambling. The terrain is rolling countryside  although the exception is that the most spectacular towns are located atop the highest hills. Our private bus is available so that anyone who does not want to walk up that last big hill can ride.

Mostly we walk on quiet, gravel-surfaced roads. There are some woodland trails where footing can be uneven. Streets of the hill-towns are usually cobble-stoned and so the footing can be rough. We strongly recommend that all participants wear hiking boots.

Average daily distance for our longer walks is about 15 kilometres (9.3 miles) while the average distance for the shorter walks is 12 kilometres (7.5 miles)  Most days we divide into two groups - a ramble and an amble. The ambling group will go slower with more frequent stops. 

Our emphasis is on having fun, exploring the country-side and sightseeing in the historic towns. There is plenty of walking available for those who want to go the extra mile but we try not to make it an endurance contest.

About Safety:

Walkers' World has planned the walks with your safety in mind. We will not expose walkers to any unnecessary danger and your well being is our first concern. Please keep in mind, however, that this is an active holiday and so entails some minimal physical risk - the sun can sting, paths can be stony. If you choose to participate in the walks, it is at your own risk and your good physical condition will mean more enjoyment of the holiday. Walkers' World retains the right to refuse participation to anyone they feel will endanger either themselves or other members of the group.
