Book Description

1 April 2006 Cicerone International Walking
Third edition of a guidebook to 50 walks through Italy's Tuscany, Umbria and Latium, ranging from brief strolls to a 5-day trek (the Chianti Trail). This guide offers suggestions for exploratory walks through the picture postcard landscapes of Tuscany, Umbria and Latium. The 50 itineraries range from brief strolls to a five-day trek, taking in little-known Etruscan marvels. Walkers are guided through medieval hamlets, exquisite Romanesque churches, unspoilt coast and countryside alive with wildlife and carpeted with wild flowers and herbs. There's the wild Chianti ridge, city walks through Perugia, Orvieto and Voltera, and day walks on the divine island of Elba and along the unspoilt coast around Orbetello. A mass of practical details cover accommodation in farms, country hotels, convents and hostels, with notes on local food and drink specialities.

1.0 out of 5 stars The author needs an atlas! 27 Sep 2010
By Matt
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book is called "Walking in Tuscany" and yet a substantial number of the walks were outside of the Tuscany region.

The walks that ARE in Tuscany were limited to the very south of the region.

I can't comment on the accuracy of the walk descriptions as we were visiting the mountains of Northern Tuscany so I sent the book back.

The book was exactly what I was looking for. The details of walks completed so far were accurate in all respects. Delivey was also prompt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Walk through history with the Etruscans 25 Aug 2001
By Colleen McCann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I did both the no.29 "Sovana's Sunken Roadways and Necropolises" and no.30 "Sovana to Pitigliano the Old Way" walks and loved every minute of them. Italy is full of museums and archeological sites but this is ancient history out in the countryside! The sunken roads are fascinating gorges formed by the wheels of horse-driven vehicles that have worn ruts over the centuries in the soft rock called tufo. Sometimes these are up to 20 metres deep. We would never have discovered places so interesting and 'off the beaten track' without this book.

2.0 out of 5 stars A long way past its "use by" date 20 Aug 2013
By TW - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book gives you some very good ideas about out of the way places to visit in Tuscany (particularly in regard to the Etruscan tombs and ruins), but it was written so long ago that it is now extremely out of date. My wife and I have done about 15 walks out of the book over the past 3 years, and the conditions and signage of almost all of them have changed so much that the descriptions are unrecognisable. A good insight into some off the beaten track sites that are certainly worth visiting, but badly in need of updating!

5.0 out of 5 stars A different look at Tuscany 18 April 2000
By Libby Gallagher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
this is a traval book with a difference! It takes you for short walks through Tuscany or you can take on the challenge of walking from Florence to Siena. Its well researched and most of the walks can be done using public transport

1.0 out of 5 stars Complete trash 9 Oct 2011
By TK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Don't give this guide a second thought....it's complete trash. We are seasoned travelers and wanted to try something new in Tuscany. Place names and sign indications were mis-spelled, natural markers were not identified; it is clear that the author has not even stepped foot on the path that was described. Total waste of time.
5.0 out of 5 stars Truly Excellent ... 18 July 2009
By NF - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I appreciated the depth and detail of this book...but then I do admire the Etruscan civilisation...unlike TW of Hobart who obviously has a limited horizon,does not read anything but a title before buying and whose opinion is frankly dull.
I am Australian, live in Italy 4 months of the year in the La Tuscia region north of Rome and this is one of the few books that covers this region ..the core of Etruria. A delightful area of lakes, sea and wonderful towns all off the bog standard tourist trail taken by the ilk of TW...and I hope it stays that way.
