WINNER OF THE ITALIAN TOURIST BOARD'S PRIZE FOR THE BEST ITALY GUIDE
The Tuscan landscape, immortalized in the paintings of the Renaissance, is perhaps the greatest man-made landscape in the world. To the south lie rolling hills, lined with cypresses and topped by medieval towns. To the east are snow-capped mountains and the dense forests of the Casentino. To the north lie the vineyards of Chianti and to the west the mysterious lands of the Etruscans. For the Walker, there are the added benefits of well-marked routes, well-tended bars, great food and the thrill of discovering artistic treasures in even the most isolated hamlets.
• A UNIQUE WALKING GUIDE ON POCKETABLE CARDS
Here’s a great twist to the walking guide: instead of a book, a stylish box filled with walking cards. Each has a different walk fully described and illustrated. Pocket a card and the protective transparent sleeve, leave the box behind, and enjoy your day out.
• WIDE COVERAGE AND EASILY ACCESSIBLE
The varied range of walks allows readers to explore different areas of this charming region, and the cards provide practical travel information to help you plan your trip.
• TRANSPARENT SLEEVE PROVIDED
If it rains, read the card through the transparent plastic sleeve.
• CHARMING PLACES TO STAY NEARBY
Combine great walking with memorable overnight stops.
• WALKS FOR EVERYONE
The walks range from half a day to two days, and are aimed at recreational walkers as well as those looking for a more challenging trip.
Adrian Woodford completed his first major walk at age 21, from the Alps to Rome. He has since led groups of walkers throughout the world, from Syria to Sevenoaks, from mountain crossings to ancient city streets. He has contributed to numerous guidebooks, and writes regular articles on walking and travel for magazines and the international press.
