Walking in Tuscany.
A walking holiday in Tuscany, and especially a walking holiday in the Lunigiana
area of Tuscany, combines the best of all possible worlds. Pure air, stunning
scenery, fine weather and, at the end of the day, robust local food and wine
to feed the body and satisfy the soul.
There are literally hundreds of miles of footpaths and hiking trails in the
area ranging from arduous high level walks to sedate paths between villages.
Most of the tracks are well maintained and are clearly marked with distinctive
red and white stripes painted on walls and rocks.
To combine walking and a visit to some of the most beautiful and spectacular
coastal scenery in Italy take a trip to the Cinque Terre. Here you can mix
walking the cliff paths with short train rides between the villages to create
your own itinerary.
More serious walkers may want to try the Parco Alpi Apuane where Mt. Pisanino
rises to 1,945 metres or perhaps a drive along the Taverone Valley and
a lovely walk over the Lagastrello Pass.
We have collected together information about some of the best walks in the
area including three walks reproduced from the Rother
Walking Guide “Tuscany
North” This excellent publication has full details of 50 walks of various
grades in the area. Our selection includes;
A walk over the Ponte della Villetta to Sambuca.
Pania di Corfino and
Hiking to Campocatino
We have also put together some general information about walks in the Valle
di Taverone and the Apennines.
If you can recommend any other safe walks in the area we would be happy to
hear about them. Happy walking!
