Tuscany: Lucca to Siena

  • Walk across the heart of Tuscany from the walled city of Lucca to Siena
  • Follow the ancient Via Francigena through vineyards and rolling hills
  • An extra day to enjoy the lively piazzas and street-side restaurants of Lucca
  • San Gimignano and Siena, recognised by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites
  • Sample fresh truffle pasta, Chianti wine and Italy's finest cured meats
Walk one of the most popular stretches of the Via Francigena in Tuscany, between rolling vineyards and Etruscan villages that are perched on hilltops. This trip seamlessly combines culture with history and excellent gastronomy. The scenery is varied with quiet stretches through green woodland and walks between rows of cypress trees, an iconic sight when walking in rural settings. Reaching the “City of Towers”, San Gimignano, is a sight to behold, much like a walk around Lucca’s city walls that once protected its historic heart. One of the best places to try white truffles is the sleepy village of San Miniato as this delicacy grows in the surrounding hills. Sample ‘tagliolini al tartufo bianco’, fresh pasta with white truffles, and be sure to treat yourself to a refreshing gelato when reaching Siena’s city gates!
