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?
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.
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.
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
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.
