We walk along farm tracks and woodland paths, through ancient Etruscan lanes cut deep into volcanic rock, all the while admiring the unspoiled landscapes of central Italy. We explore Etruscan ruins, wander through craggy cliff-top towns and become enthralled by the deep blue waters of Lake Bolsena. We stay en route in the medieval city of Orvieto and the small hamlet of Sovana, before reaching Pitigliano at the end of the week.
The walking journey takes us through the regions of Umbria, Lazio and Tuscany.
