Now in its third edition, this guide offers suggestions for exploratory walks through the picture postcard landscapes of Tuscany, Umbria and Latium. Once known as Etruria, it was home to the ancient and enigmatic people who preceded the Romans. The book has 50 itineraries ranging 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.

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.
