“Thank you Marcello and Anna for another wonderful walking vacation – this time in the magical Chianti region of Italy. Once again the accommodations were superb, from a lovely country home set in a working vineyard in Greve to an elegant palazzo in Radda and a stylish and well situated hotel in Florence. As we have come to expect, the walking directions were accurate and easy to follow, providing general information about local history and culture and reliable recommendations for food and other stops of interest. We walked in virtual solitude, through postcard perfect Tuscan landscapes: vineyards, olive groves, picturesque medieval villages and cypress lined laneways. Among the highlights of our trip were the walled village of Montefioralle and the wine tasting in Radda – where we were warmly welcomed and had the opportunity to sample many of the region’s fine wines, rarely available in North America. The Jewels of the Chianti would be a great introduction for anyone thinking of doing a self-guided walking tour for the first time, but we recommend it to walkers of any age or experience level!
