This new 3rd edition of our guidebook to walking in Tuscany has been thoroughly revised just prior to publication. All the maps have also been redrawn using OpenStreetMap source material with GPS tracking.
The printed maps show waypoints, and free downloadable GPS tracks are available for all the hikes.
Colour coding on the Contents page enables you to see at a glance the grading of various treks.
A wealth of ‘feature’ panels bring to life the history, customs and culture of the region.
This guidebook is designed for visitors walking in Tuscany and touring Tuscany by car.
While the region’s historic towns and architectural highlights are often the focal points for these excursions, the role of the Tuscan peasant in creating this glorious landscape is stressed throughout — especially in the wealth of background information about Tuscany’s customs and cuisine, flora, fauna and history — all of them illustrated.
The book should be particularly suitable for those who wish to combine a visit to Florence with seeing the Italian countryside (you’ll need a good city guide for Florence, while this ‘Landscapes’ guide will show you the best of the rural scene.)
