Walking in Chianti
Inspirational Landscapes and Invigorating Walks

The extraordinary Chianti wine district of Italy is criss-crossed with secondary roads, farm roads, lanes and pathways that offer some of the best walks in the world. It is a region of vineyards, olive groves and farms, broken up by expanses of forests and dotted with ancient towns, villages and hamlets each with its own charms and secrets.  These tours will breathe new life into you even as they leave you breathless.
