Hiking in Tuscany

Tuscany must surely be one of the most charming places in the world to go for a walk.  The landscape is dotted with medieval hilltop towns and villages and the countryside is a marvellously textured experience.
There are some challenging hills and also more gentle hikes to enjoy at our recommended properties in this most quintessential of Italian regions.

What better than to set off towards a distant hilltop town, climb the slope, and then experience the ancient alley ways and courtyards of your chosen destination.  Then head back from whence you came or pick another hilltop gem to head to.

Whether you choose to stay at the super luxurious Castiglione del Bosco or at the Adler-Thermae spa resort, or Castel Monastero, you will have great walking and hiking options at both.

However, if you love the kind of challenging hike that only mountains can provide, why not head north to the Italian Dolomites?
