Walking in Tuscany

The difference between a tourist and a traveller? Tourists visit. Travellers explore. And once youve seen, smelled, felt, and tasted northern Tuscany, youll want to devour as much of it as possible. This journey into Garfagnana one of Italys top trekking regions offers plenty of exercise for mind, body, and soul alike. Over seven days, youll hike the unspoiled mountains by day, learn to prepare delicious local cuisine in the evening, and put your well-used feet up at the end of it all to soak in the simple pleasures of country life.
