    Travel & Transfers

    To start your holiday, we recommend that you arrive at Florence or Pisa Airport and take a train to Pontedera or Poggibonsi.

    When you finish your holiday, you can go by train to Pisa or Florence so you can take the flight back to your home city.

    FAQs

    We suggest that you make the reservation as soon as possible, as soon as you have decided the dates of your holiday, since Tuscany is a highly sought after and popular destination. 

    If you prefer to hike in cooler seasons, May, September and October are perfect.

    Although in autumn Tuscany is dressed in beautiful and unique colours, in summer you can also travel, but temperatures can be very high on these dates. 

    Yes, it's included. We will transfer the luggage between each accommodation according to your itinerary. Each person can take a suitcase up to 20 kg (45 lbs).

    On this holiday, you will have walks between 17 km and 25.5 km each day, so you must have an active lifestyle with a very good level of physical endurance.

    If you decide not to take any of the walks, remember that with advance notice you can travel in the taxi that transports your luggage between accommodation. 

    The most important thing is that you bring everything you need to make your holiday comfortable. For example, waterproof boots, instead of shoes, as they will give you better support during the walk; light clothing and a backpack to carry during the day with a cap, sunglasses and sunscreen.

    If you cannot do one of the stages, we can transfer you in the same taxi that carries your baggage between accommodation and avoid those walks, provided that you notify us in advance. Also remember that you have days off where you can choose short routes or relax.
