    The Garfagnana region, close to the gems of Lucca, Pisa and Florence, is one of Italy’s best-kept secrets and the perfect base for guided walking holidays in Tuscany. The area’s astonishing landscape is a far cry from the rolling hills of southern Tuscany as it lies between the striking peaks of the Alpi Apuane and Apennine mountain ranges, providing us with ample hiking opportunities which, along with picturesque mountaintop and lakeside villages and the warm local hospitality, make for a wonderful trip.

    Highlights of Italy’s Tuscany Mountains on foot
    The Garfagnana is crossed in its entirety by the Serchio River, which contributes to the lush green valleys you’ll get to experience here. These set the harmonious contrast with the wild mountains that surround the area: to the east/northeast, the Apennines and to the west, the Apuan Alps. These offer visitors plenty of outdoor activities in addition to spending time visiting the many enchanting quaint villages that hold enchanting art and architectural treasures to discover.

    The Garfagnana area provides enormous scope for some of the most spectacular and interesting trekking in Italy, with the added bonus of knowing we will rarely see other walkers. The majority of the paths are well-maintained, however a few sections are less frequently used and rough underfoot, with some steep ascents and descents, it will suit people who exercise regularly. Previous trekking experience is needed. Some trails can be overgrown and long trousers are recommended. Most departure dates are graded moderate and ascents and descents of 400 to 700 metres. You will usually walk 4 to 6 hours each day and a good level of fitness is required.
