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.

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.
