Your Holiday Itinerary

Day 1 - UK to Pisa

Fly to Pisa. Meet your travelling companions over a drink and dinner.

Day 2 - Colle Bassa to San Gimignano

Walk 9km/5.6mi - 2.5hrs

Our walk today follows part of the Via Francigena, an ancient route between Rome and Canterbury. We'll make our way through vineyards, olive groves and over rolling hills to the lovely Tuscan town of San Gimignano. In medieval times, as many as 72 towers are thought to have graced the town's skyline, when prosperous families competed to build the tallest as a symbol of their stature and wealth. Today, 14 of these towers still stand and the town is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Day 3 - Lucca

Today is free for you to enjoy as you wish or alternatively we offer an optional excursion to Lucca, a medieval fortified town. Here, we'll walk along the impressive walls and admire fabulous views of the town's surroundings .

Day 4 - Volterra

Walk 9km/5.6mi - 3hrs 

Today we will walk to the Balze in Volterra and take in views of these spectacular cliffs created by soil erosion. After the walk there will be time for you to explore the charming town of Volterra at your own pace. You could choose to visit the Etruscan museum and discover more about the town's history, or maybe you'd prefer to watch an alabaster crafstman at work.

Day 5 - Siena 

Siena is a charming medieval hilltop town which has barely changed since the Middle Ages. At its heart is the spectacular fan-shaped Piazza del Campo, which is the setting for the exciting and colourful Palio horse race, held twice a year.

Day 6 - Lajatico

Walk 9km/5/6mi - 3hrs

Join us on a walk to the little town of Lajatico, the birthplace of opera singer Bocelli. We'll make our way through the beautiful Tuscany hills on foot, and when we arrive in Lajatico we'll see the open-air venue, the Silence Theatre. Bocelli performs a concert here every summer and for the remainder of the year the stage is transformed into a lake.

Day 7 - Tomobli Nature Reserve

Walk 10km/6.2mi - 3 hrs

Today's walk takes place in the Tomboli Nature Reserve, a beautiful forest stretching inland from the coast. Sand dunes blanketed by dense vegetation give way to junipers, holly oaks and pine trees as you move away from the sea. And don't forget to keep a look out for wildlife, many species make their home in the forest, including foxes, porcupines and roe deer.

Day 8 - Pisa to UK

Today we fly back to the UK.
