Trail Running in Tuscany invites travelers to actively immerse themselves in the Tuscan countryside.  Each day will consist of two segments: a group run and a sightseeing tour.

 

Daily Run.  We will run once each day on the paths and gravel roads in the adjacent Alto Merse Forest Reserve.  Runs will vary from 4 to 8 miles in length and will be adjusted to fit the needs and desires of the participants.  Each run will include stops to tour and explore.

 

Daily Tour. We will spend the majority of each day exploring the surrounding countryside.  Some tentative touring highlights include:

 

Discovering Castle and Monastery Ruins

Sampling Wines where they are made

Exploring a Woodland Garden

Wandering through a Tuscan Hill Town

Searching for Cinghiale (wild boar)
