The difference between a tourist and a traveller? Tourists visit. Travellers explore. And once youve seen, smelled, felt, and tasted northern Tuscany, youll want to devour as much of it as possible. This journey into Garfagnana one of Tuscany’s most breathtaking regions offers plenty of exercise for mind, body, and soul alike. Over seven days, youll explore the unspoiled mountains by day, learn to prepare delicious local cuisine in the evening, and put your feet up at the end of it all to soak in the simple pleasures of country life.
