New! Hidden Trails of Tuscany & the Italian Riviera

Trip Length 10 days

From $5,895

  • Unravel the hidden secrets of Tuscany and the Italian Riviera as you follow trails through an exquisite landscape of villages, olive groves, and vineyards—with the expert leadership of MTS guides
  • Watch fishermen bring in the catch of the day in the charming seaside towns of Portofino and Camogli, and savor exquisite Italian cuisine and regional wines
  • Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Siena and San Gimignano, and wander through Genoa’s intricate maze of alleyways

Come along on an exciting new journey to Tuscany and the Italian Riviera, two of the most enchanting and sought-after destinations in Italy. Here you’ll explore pristine landscapes the best way possible—by foot—on daily 3-hour hikes that will take you off the tourist map. Tuscany, cradle of the Renaissance, will captivate you with its rolling hills, cypress trees and hill top towns, while the Italian Riviera promises a paradise of vibrant colors suspended between the Apennine Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea. From the splendid city of Florence to the vineyards of Chianti; from the renowned Tower of Pisa to the seafaring villages of the Italian Riviera; this 10-day tour ventures along picturesque back roads while still taking in the iconic, big-ticket sights—with comfortable hotels every night.

Day 1: Arrive in Florence

Welcome to Florence! Arrive at Amerigo Vespucci Airport and transfer on your own to the Hotel Degli Orafi, located in the historic heart of the city. You have the rest of the day to relax in your room, or, take advantage of the hotel’s prime location and explore this magical city at your leisure. Window shop along Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence, or pay your respects to Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Raffaello at the Uffizi Gallery, located just steps from the hotel. Please keep in mind that check in at the hotel is at 3pm. If you arrive earlier, you may leave your luggage at reception.

  • Accommodation:Hotel Degli Orafi

Day 2: Journey along Tuscany's ancient trails to medieval Greve

Meet your guide at 9am at the Hotel Degli Orafi.  Together, you will be driven to Greve and Radda, two small towns located near what were the most important communication routes during medieval times. Follow ancient paths as you hike through the hills of Greve, following in the footsteps of pilgrims and merchants. Later, you’ll visit Radda, a town rich in Florentine history that is surrounded by endless vineyards. If time allows, on our way to our hotel, we will visit enchanting San Gusmè, a very small, walled hamlet known for its picturesque tranquility. We then continue to Castelnuovo Berardenga, the fourth capital of the Senese Chianti and the sight of the Battle of Montaperti in 1260, during which Florence was defeated by the Republic of the Palio.  Your accommodations for the night are Hotel Villa Curina, a 16th-century traditional Tuscan villa.

(Hiking distance: 5 miles; Hiking time: 2 to 2½ hours)

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Hotel Villa Curina

Day 3: Walk the otherworldly landscape of the Crete Senesi

Today’s hike explores the mesmerizing lunar landscape of the Crete Senesi (clays of Siena). Practically devoid of vegetation, this is a unique, hilly area whose ancient origins as a sea basin date back to the Pliocene period (2.5 to 4.5 million years ago). You won’t find castles or cathedrals here, only the endless harmony of the undulating lines of the earth, as if to still represent the waves of an ancient sea, marked occasionally by a tree or a farmhouse. We will hike in this exceptional scenery, through farmland dotted with sheep, and crops of wheat and barley, before ending the day in UNESCO-listed Siena, where you can admire its exquisite architecture on a private tour. We will learn its strategic role through history and admire the architectural beauty of some of its main monuments. You will have some free time to shop and taste some of Siena’s famous “panforte.”

(Hiking distance: 6 miles; Hiking time: 3 hours)

  • Breakfast/Dinner

Day 4: Hike among the vineyards of Vernaccia

Today San Gimignano, which has retained its feudal atmosphere and appearance, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After a light lunch, you will have free time to explore the small town. You may visit the Collegiata of Santa Maria Assunta, whose sober external façade hides an interior lined with extraordinary frescoes. Alternatively, stroll through the charming streets and Piazza della Cisterna, the town’s most enchanting and beautiful square, enclosed in a curtain of noble homes and medieval towers. We will rendezvous for an obligatory ice cream in the best ice-cream parlor in town before continuing to Lucca.

(Hiking distance: 5 miles; Hiking time: 2½ hours)

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner

The rest of the day is yours to discover more of Lucca on your own, with expert suggestions from your guide. Just make sure you don’t leave Lucca without tasting some of the best “cantucci” in Tuscany. For those who don’t wish to hike, you have the option to visit Pisa and its leaning tower in the morning. Also worth a visit are the extraordinary Cathedral and the Baptistery, carved from Carrara marble.

Day 6: Discover the seaside village of Sestri Levante

Sestri is ideally positioned on a peninsula, with the Bay of Silence on one side and the Bay of Fairy Tales on the other, named in honor of the famous Danish author Hans Christian Andersen, who lived here for some time. Later, we will transfer by train to Camogli, a town of prehistoric origins. Camogli is the western gateway to Portofino Natural Park and an exquisite fishing town in the Golfo Paradiso, a name aptly fitting the spectacular environment of the Mediterranean Sea, olive groves and maritime pines. Camogli is enchanting, framed by colorful houses, restaurants and unique artisanal shops. In the late afternoon, one can sit at a café by the port, and watch fishermen unload their catch of the day while the sun casts a beautiful glow on the colorful town.

(Hiking distance: 4 to 4½ miles; Hiking time 2½ hours)

  • Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner
  • Accommodation:Hotel Cenobio dei Dogi

Day 7: Explore Santa Margherita Ligure, Portofino and Camogli

Start the day with a short train ride to Santa Margherita Ligure, a beautiful town on the Gulf of Tigullio. Here, we’ll walk through the historical centre and make our way towards Portofino. A beautiful countryside dotted with small farms and villas are perched on terracing cultivated with olive trees and surrounded by lush vegetation. As we descend into the spectacular bay of Portofino, views of the Mediterranean and its enchanting town welcome you. After a light lunch and some free time to visit the small and renowned town, we'll transfer by public boat to the 10th-century Abbey of San Fruttuoso, tucked away in a very small bay at the tip of the Natural Park of Portofino. We’ll boat back to Camogli, where you can browse artisanal shops and art galleries before dinner on your own. Please note that all boat travel and our visit to San Fruttuoso is contingent on sea conditions.

(Hiking distance: 6½ miles; Hiking time: 3 hours)

Sitting on a sheer cliff above the Mediterranean, San Rocco is a splendid vantage point from which to enjoy the panorama over the Golfo Paradiso and Camogli. We continue on to Punta Chiappa, where you can take a dip in the refreshing and clear waters of the Mediterranean. After a lunch of freshly caught fish, we return to Camogli before moving on to the fascinating city of Genoa, where you’ll weave your way through the intricate maze of alleyways lined with historic shops.

(Hiking distance: 3 miles; Hiking time: 2 to 2½ hours)

  • Breakfast/Lunch
  • Accommodation:Hotel NH Marina Collection

Day 9: Explore the historical sights of Genoa

The last full day of the trip is dedicated to an exploration of Genoa’s most important historical sights. As we make our way through the oldest part of town, we’ll see an array of architectural styles spanning through the centuries, including the old port, completely renovated by famous architect Renzo Piano, and Palazzo San Giorgio, built in 1260 as the first public building of Genoa. Thorough narrow alleyways hiding timeless treasures, we make our way to the Cathedral, an extraordinary blend of Romanesque and Gothic styles.  Next we’ll have exclusive tours of some of the “Palazzi dei Rolli,” exquisite private homes that are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We’ll have lunch before seeing the Prince’s Palace, the most sumptuous noble household in Genoa. The rest of the day is free to enjoy more of Genoa on your own. We'll gather together as a group one last time for our farewell dinner.
