Walks in Tuscany's mountainous Garfagnana region
The Garfagnana region, close to the gems of Lucca, Pisa and Florence, is one of Italy's best-kept secrets and the perfect base for guided walking holidays in Tuscany. The area’s astonishing landscape is a far cry from the rolling hills of southern Tuscany as it lies between the striking peaks of the Alpi Apuane and Apennine mountain ranges, providing us with ample hiking opportunities which, along with picturesque mountaintop and lakeside villages and the warm local hospitality, make for a wonderful trip. Certain dates include more challenging trekking and incorporate one night in a mountain refuge.

Accommodation details
Braccicorti
You will spend 7 nights at Braccicorti, a lodge-style farmhouse with an outdoor swimming pool or 6 nights at Braccicorti and 1 night in a comfortable mountain hut on challenging grade departures. The lodge comprises 4 twin/double rooms (with en-suite facilities) and 2 apartments, each with 1 twin/double and 1 single room sharing a bathroom. Room preferences should be stated on booking, but cannot be guaranteed.
Braccicorti lodge has been renovated keeping the character of the area in mind and is not a luxury villa. There are basic furnishings and rooms are not serviced as you would expect in a hotel.
There is no charge for the single rooms, as bathroom facilities are shared. These are provided on a first come first served basis and should be requested upon booking.

These are ‘land only’ prices which require you to book your own flights and join the rest of the group on Day 1 of the trip. For more information please see Trip Notes
