Trekking and Outdoor

Tuscany offers wide opportunities for open air vacations, and has one special quality: it has a fantastic environmental heritage and a strong system of mid-size tourist business that are environmentally friendly.

If you are into walking, the Region offers itineraries for all kinds of trekkers from the mountain peaks of the Apennines to the Tuscan Maremma.  

Unspoilt nature, routes with varying difficulty that can be combined with sports or cuisine: this is the Garfagnana. Here you'll find small medieval hamlets, where age-old traditions can still be experienced. A beautiful show of the white mountains of the Apuan Alps: marble that sparkles under the bright rays of the sun. Only here can you find such beauty.

For those who want to avoid high altitudes, Siena and its footpaths are a perfect alternative. With its ups and downs, Siena is ideal for urban trekking because it is the perfect marriage between physical activity and art. On the hills that surround Florence, some 170 km of paths await. Along the Ring of the Renaissance, trekkers will walk through ancient monasteries, castles, churches, towns until reaching the Tuscan capital.
