Tuscany Walking is a UK registered family business running walking holidays near Barga which is situated in a little known corner of Tuscany on the edge of the Garfagnana National Park. This region is one of traditional Italian living and is set amongst some of the most spectacular scenery that Tuscany has to offer.
Our guided walking holidays have a higher level accommodation, meals and over all service than those normally provided on a walking holiday. We keep our groups smaller so that we can give a more personalised walking holiday to our guests.
We can cater for larger groups too, just contact us.
Eating is a very important pastime here in Italy. Dinners on walking days will be taken in Barga or nearby where you will be able to eat local dishes from the Garfagnana and the region prepared from seasonal fresh local produce. Lunches are picnics using local fresh focaccia, breads, produce and fruits of the season.
Tuscany Walking accommodation is a welcoming, family run agriturismo in Tiglio, a tranquil hamlet just 10 minutes drive from Barga which offers a very high standard of hospitality and comfort with beamed rooms decorated in the traditional style of Tuscany, a wonderful swimming pool and hostess Gioconda who is famous for her never ending breakfasts. We offer another base at Gragno in the heart of the Barga countryside, just 12 minutes walk from the centre of Barga and all its facilities. Gragno is a traditional and comfortable, recently renovated agriturismo with a welcoming swimming pool for after walk relaxation.
In this traditional and unspoilt region we have the Garfagnana National Park, Orecchiella Park and the Apuane Alps. We believe there is something to offer all of our guests whether it be the exhilarating views of the area, sleepy hill-top villages or chestnut woods where you can see and hear how life in this part of Italy was once lived and with English and Italian guides (English is spoken on your walks) we will help you to get the most out of your walking holiday in Italy.
Here at Tuscany Walking, we are dedicated to helping you get the most out of your holiday in Tuscany and we will do our best to help you take away long lasting memories of a traditionally Italian experience.
