Rivers of ink have been spent to talk about the beauties of Tuscany: Florence, Siena, Pisa with their amazing art masterpieces; other smaller towns and villages like Lucca, Arezzo, Pistoia, Volterra, San Gimignano definitely worth visited; gorgeous landscapes like Orcia river valley with Pienza or the Maremma with Massa Marittima, Pitigliano and Sovana; outstanding wines from Chianti or Montalcino and Montepulciano, furthermore the castles and parishes, the olive groves, kind and hospitable people.
There is so much to see and to do once in Tuscany if it is your first time a guided walk in Florence is unmissable together with a ride in the typical Tuscan countryside for a visit of Siena and San Gimignano and for a wine tasting in a Chianti winery. If you still have time Pisa and Lucca, both located in the north-west of Tuscany, are another good idea for a day trip.
Something to pair with the cultural activities is related to the food tastings and food making. We offer some food-on-foot tours in order to experience local flavors, together with cooking classes that are also fun if you have kids to keep busy. Something still involving for the kids could be a boat ride in the 5 Terre or a marble sculpting class in Carrara with the visit of the amazing marble quarries.
Something for more active people is our bike tours that we organize all over Tuscany and in the rest of Italy, they are suitable for ciclo-turisti (cycle-tourists), people that love a slow approach to the visiting of a region with a touch of sweat and toil.
Our hiking tours stretch from the heart of Tuscany in Val d’Orcia, to the Maremma parks, through the amazing islands of Giglio and Elba as far as the 3 Natural Parks region located in the north of Tuscany where is concentrated a high number of Regional and National Parks: Apuan Alps (the Carrara marble mountains), Montemarcello and Portovenere, Cinque Terre, Portofino, Apennines Mountains.
