Synopsis

This full colour guide is a new edition, and 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 Etruscan people who preceded the Romans. The book has fifty itineraries ranging from brief strolls to the Chianti Trail, a five-day trek, taking in little-known Etruscan marvels such as ancient sunken roads and monumental tombs. Walkers are guided through medieval hamlets, exquisite Romanesque churches, unspoilt coast and countryside alive with wild life and carpeted with wild flowers and aromatic herbs. There's the wild Chianti ridge, city walks through Perugia, Orvieto and Voltera, day walks on the divine island of Elba and along the unspoilt coast around Orbetell. A mass of practical details cover accommodation in farms, country hotels, convents and hostels, with notes on local specialities in the food and drink field. Visitors are encouraged to use the public transport system so as to minimise impact. The aim of this walking guide is to encourage people to get out of their car and explore the area on foot.

A series of walks is presented to take visitors through the maze of age- old tracks and discover the delights of the Tuscan and surrounding countryside, often meaning fascinating little known Etruscan sites. There are mysterious tombs excavated out of volcanic tufa cliff sides, original sunken roadways, dominating acropolis sites and impressive sanctuaries, all set in inimitable picture postcard countryside.
