||Walking in Tuscany
This guide offers suggestions for exploratory walks through the picture postcard landscapes of Tuscany, Umbria and Latium. Over 50 itineraries ranging from brief strolls to a five-day trek take in little-known Etruscan marvels such as ancient sunken roads and monumental rock tombs. Walkers are guided through medieval hamlets, Romanesque churches, unspoilt coast and countryside alive with wildlife and carpeted with expanses of wild flowers and aromatic herbs. There's the Chianti ridge, city walks through Perugia, Orvieto and Volterra, day walks on the island of Elba and along the coast around Orbetell. Practical details cover accommodation in farms, country hotels, convents and hostels, with notes on local specialities in food and drink.
