The region of Tuscany has some of the most beautiful landscape in Europe, if not the world, and so as well as the thousands of holiday makers that flock to this area for a summer of sightseeing there are plenty who come to explore the scenery. But whether you are a seasoned walker or are trying it out for the first time; you need to have a plan of action in order to get the most out of your holiday.You won’t regret coming to this part of the world and whilst it may take you a few days to get your breath back after the beautiful terrain has snatched it away; you will no doubt be planning your next walking holiday as soon as you return home.
So what’s the best way to get the most out of your time trekking in Tuscany?
Stay In Accommodation Outside Of The Cities –You won’t be surprised to hear that the most scenic walks can be found outside of the main cities and so this is the best place to base yourself. We have a wide range of villas in different sizes scattered all over the Tuscan countryside which will act as the perfect base camp for your walking adventures. Not only will you be away from the busy tourist areas by choosing to stay in one of these but you will also be in the perfect place to have easy access to the best walking trails.
Plan Ahead –The best way to get the most from your walking holiday is to plan ahead so that you can fit in as much as possible. Have a look at some of the walking routes before you fly out so that you have a good idea of where you want to head when you get here. This way you can identify the routes that are the right length for you and those that take you through areas you are interested in seeing. Speak to other walking enthusiasts as well to see which routes they would recommend and visit this walking in Tuscany site for more information.
Take A Day To Relax –Although the main reason you will have come to Tuscany is to explore the natural landscape; do you really want to come this far and not take a day to really chill out? Walking is in itself relaxing but if you really want to recharge those batteries then don’t forget to take a day by the private pool in your villa and enjoy the Tuscan sun as it gently warms your face.
Be Wary Of Losing Your Way –Even the most experienced walkers can easily get lost, especially in a foreign country, and so it’s important that you don’t go too far off track. The main routes will be helpfully signposted but it’s still a good idea to purchase a book which details all the trails in the area and you can revert to it if you think you may have taken a wrong turn. Alternatively you can sign up for group walks that are led by someone who will have walked the route many times and so will know where they are going. Technology can be a great help too. There are plenty of apps that will help to get you back on course should you go astray and you can always phone for help if it comes to it.
