Italy: Tuscany & Umbria

Easy to Moderate Terrain: 4 - 8 miles daily

Italy: Tuscany & Umbria

As you cross the lavish inlaid mosaic floor of the Duomo di Siena, vaulted by striped marble columns and surrounded by the brilliance of inlaid gold, you’ll see why Tuscany and Umbria are called the cradle of the Renaissance. From the glorious cathedrals and stonework piazzas of medieval cities to the stately rows of sun-dappled olive trees, the region boasts a refinement and pastoral splendor that is quintessentially Italian. In this spectacular setting, you’ll walk a landscape of grape arbors, swaying wheat fields, and rustic farmhouses, stopping to explore Etruscan ruins along the way. You’ll savor a bounty of sophisticated cuisine in renowned restaurants and family-run trattorias: fine cured meats, exquisite wine, shaved black truffles, traditionally pressed olive oil, and handmade pasta. Climbing to the summit of Mount Subasio— where St. Francis once preached to the birds—you’ll pass through open meadows and wild oak forest, drinking in views of the surrounding valley beyond. Like the tang of aged pecorino cheese, the region’s delectable essence will linger with you long after you’ve departed.


Tour Highlights:
  • Marvel at Giotto’s 28-part fresco The Life of St. Francis, which graces the walls of the iconic Basilica of St. Francis, passionately interpreted by your expert guide.
  • Partake in an unforgettable dining experience in Assisi, where your table sits atop a glassed-in excavation of Roman ruins.
  • Discover the mystical 12th-century Romanesque Abbey of Sant’Antimo surrounded by wheat fields and olive groves.
