Guided Walking Holidays in Beautiful Tuscany, in a Small Group
Welcome to Tuscany Walking. We have been guiding small group walking holidays in Italy since 2005. With our wealth of experience and knowledge of this stunning area in and around the Garfagnana National Park we have put together inspiring and beautiful walks for all levels of experience and ability. With us here at Tuscany Walking you will experience the real Italy on your holiday, in an uncommercial and lunspoiled part of Tuscany.
Accommodation is comfortable and traditionally Italian with an outdoor pool and jaw dropping mountain views. Dinners are prepared in Italian style with super fresh local ingredients and traditional methods using recipes that have been handed down through the generations. All are washed down by delicious local wine.
Here at Tuscany walking we keep our groups smaller so that we can give you a better and more tailored walking holiday. If you are a larger group, don’t worry because we can easily cater for you and we offer discounts on groups of 4 or more when you book together. Just contact us for more information.

Dinners, depending on where you stay, are farmhouse cooked in the traditional “casalinga” style.

Scenery on your Walking Holiday
The scenery here has been described as dramatic, spectacular, stunning, peaceful, spiritual and a “real paradise.” The area staggeringly beautiful and is very different from the over crowded, uncomfortablye hot and very commercial areas of southern Tuscany. Here you won’t find the stifling crowds that you see in the more famous Tuscan places. Life here is traditional and in harmony with nature. You will find peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle of modern life.
Be prepared for stunning sunsets, amazing woodlands, incredible scented air and a sense of peace and being in synch with your natural surroundings.
Barga, described as one of the prettiest towns in Italy, is nestled in an unspoiled corner of Northern Tuscany on the edge of the Garfagnana National Park.
This region hosts some of most spectacular scenery that Italy has to offer and a lifestyle that is timeless, natural and traditional.
