Starting in a beautiful medieval village on the top of a hill, you will feel like you’ve stepped back in time. The soft evening light at this time of the day, and the view along our walk alone will make it worth your while. In fact we are pretty sure you will never forget the sweeping coastal landscapes and vistas that you'll see on the trail to yet another beautiful village in the area that we will visit while the sun sets. Looking right in front at the olive groves, or looking into the distance at the sea, you will be pretty busy taking photos of what’s around you. From the church with panoramic views situated in pretty Santa Lucia, we will keep walking while checking out the mountains and the nearby valley on our way through the forest and ancient paths. We will eventually arrive back at our starting point where we will enjoy the slow-paced rhythm of life once again with a chance to enjoy a nice aperitivo (wine and food tasting with local products) from a wonderful terrace overlooking the coast while we watch the sun dipping into the sea. It is really worth the effort!
I was born and raised in Tuscany. After graduating in Sport Science and working in the field for many years, I then went travelling and lived abroad. On returning to Italy, I decided to follow my passion for nature and sports. As a fully qualified outdoor guide, I lead both hiking and mountain biking tours in Tuscany and surrounds. I am also the founder of Explore Tuscany (www.exploretuscany.net), which offers visitors to Tuscany fully guided experiences around some of the best unknown gems in this beautiful part of the world. True off the beaten tracks experiences for those people who like exploring a new area from a different point of view.
