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 wildlife 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.
