Your itinerary

​Fly to Pisa today. Meet your fellow travellers over a drink and dinner.​

Walk 9km - 2.5hrs​​

Today we will walk to the Balze in Volterra and take in views of these spectacular cliffs created by soil erosion.  After the walk there will be time for you to explore the charming town of Volterra at your own pace. You could choose to visit the Etruscan museum and discover more about the town's history or maybe you'd prefer to watch an alabaster master at work.

We will visit the medieval hilltop town of Certaldo today and enjoy a ride on the funicular. We'll enjoy delightful views of the surrounding countryside and wander around the historic streets.  

​Walk 9km - 3hrs 

Today's walk takes us through the unusual landscape of Devil's Valley in Larderello. In this geologically active area, boiling hot springs rise to the surface, shrouded in billowing white smoke.
Later there will be time to explore the village of Larderello, where you could choose to visit the geothermal museum and learn more about the use of geothermal energy over the years.

San Gimignano and Siena are charming medieval hilltop towns which have barely changed since the Middle Ages. San Gimignano, one of the loveliest towns in Tuscany, is also known as the 'town of beautiful towers' due to the vast numbers that were built here by feuding families as a status symbol in medieval times.

Siena's medieval town centre is one of the most perfectly preserved in Europe. You're sure to be enchanted by the spectacular fan-shaped Piazza del Campo, which is the setting for the exciting and colourful Palio horse race, held twice a year. Discover both towns on today's optional full-day visit.

Walk 9km - 3hrs 
Join us on a walk to the little town of Lajatico, the birthplace of opera singer Bocelli. We'll make our way through the beautiful Tuscany hills on foot, and when we arrive in Lajatico we'll see the open-air venue, the Silence Theatre. Bocelli performs a concert here every summer and for the remainder of the year the stage is transformed into a lake. 

Today is free for you to enjoy as you wish, or alternatively we offer an optional excursion to Pisa and Lucca. In Pisa we'll see one of Italy's most famous sights, the Leaning Tower, before we continue on to Lucca, a medieval town surrounded by impressive walls.

​Today we fly back to the UK.​

Please note that due to customer feedback the itinerary for 2019 will be slightly different, for more details on this, please give us a call to speak to one of our agents for further details.

Pisa and Lucca

Pisa and Lucca

from £52

Click for more info

Head to Pisa to see its famous Leaning Tower. This bell tower resides in the Field of Miracles beside an amazing collection of religious buildings. Head inside the cathedral to see the marble pulpit created by the great sculptor Giovanni Pisano and nearby you’ll see a bronze lamp that according to a popular story Galileo was watching sway gently when the law of the pendulum occurred to him. Whether this tale is true or not, Galileo grew up here, so surely he was inspired by his surroundings. Continue to the perfectly preserved walled town of Lucca where you’ll find fine examples of medieval and Renaissance architecture, charming piazzas and even a tree-topped tower on a stroll through its historic centre.

Please note: Entrance fees are payable locally at the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the cathedral.

Full Day - Moderate Walking - Must See

Stunning Siena and San Gimignano

Stunning Siena and San Gimignano

from £64

Step back in time as you visit these two hilltop towns that have changed very little since the Middle Ages. San Gimignano is also known as the ‘town of the beautiful towers’. You’ll see why from a distance as the vast numbers of towers built as status symbols by feuding families come into view. More treats are in store in the shape of elegant palaces, ancient frescoed churches and small shops selling local produce and hand-crafted souvenirs. In Siena a Local Guide will lead you through streets lined with palaces and mansions to the Piazza del Campo – the setting for the Palio horse race – and the cathedral which boasts an exquisitely decorated façade.

Full day - Moderate Walking - Highly recommended
