Experience the varied landscape of the beautiful central Italian region of Tuscany. Hike through the beautiful terrain of the Apennines in the North, over the rolling hills in the center, to the vast plains and sandy beaches of the Mediterranean islands in the south. Hike on trails, some of which are more than 2000 years old, founded by the Etruscans and Romans. These trails will lead us to villages and cities whose appearance has changed very little since the Middle Ages. Enjoy the famous Tuscan cuisine and the main agricultural products: excellent wines and olive oil at its finest. With Mary Taylor and our local guides, we will hike this beautiful region and learn about the country, its people, history, and local the flora and fauna. This is truly the most magical way to experience the Garden of Italy!
