The best trekking routes in Tuscany

Trekking routes in Tuscany

Spring and summer bring with them the desire to walk and rediscover the relationship with nature. Discover with us which are the best trekking routes in Tuscany!

Tuscany by foot

The passion for trekking and walking tourism is increasing significantly today, thanks to the desire to rediscover an authentic contact with nature and the landscape that hosts us.

Slow tourism means enjoying every moment of our journey, savoring smells, colors and perfumes. Traveling on foot allows you to enter the territory we are crossing, stopping to admire breathtaking landscapes, ancient ruins or any attraction that arouses our interest.

In the wake of great paths such as the famous Santiago’s walk, a way of traveling slowly is spreading in Tuscany, favoring walking or cycling.

Discovering Tuscany on foot is a different experience from classic tourist activities in that it is a way of doing tourism that is aimed at a public who loves trekking and walking and who prefers to stay in structures surrounded by nature.

The trekking routes in Tuscany are characterized by excursions of varying difficulty, always

indicated in the signs of the paths together with the travel times.

Tuscany is therefore a region that can meet the needs of more experienced hikers but also of simple trekking enthusiasts or beginners.

From north to south its mountain ranges offer demanding excursions such as those that can be found on the Apuan Alps, paths to be divided into stages and tackled in more days such as the “Cammino degli Dei” that connects Florence to Bologna, or simple walks to be taken with the whole family safety.

The best trekking routes in Tuscany

Tuscany offers truly breathtaking trekking routes, being able to choose between geographic areas of great beauty such as excursions to the islands.

In Tuscany, in fact, it is possible to make beautiful treks overlooking the sea such as:

  • Daily trekking to the island of Capraia;
  • Trekking to visit the Rio Marina mines on the island of Elba;
  • Trekking on the island of Pianosa.

For those who love the most demanding but truly suggestive treks, they certainly cannot miss the opportunity to organize excursions to the Apuan Alps, to discover, for example, Monte Forato or Procinto.

But even excluding islands and Apuan Alps in Tuscany we really have an infinite number of excursions and trails, here are the best trekking routes in Tuscany that we can tackle even without being expert:
