Hedonistic Hiking has announced a new Italian tour In Northern Tuscany and Ravenna for 2018. Valleys of vines, chestnut woods and beech forests and landscapes that inspired great Renaissance artists and poets plus of course gourmet meals and culinary delights like the October Chestnut Festival.

Beginning in Bologna, the culinary capital of Emilia-Romagna, the seven night itinerary takes you down to the northern part of Tuscany to explore the unknown territory of the Mugello, a wide green valley criss-crossed by the Sieve river, shaping a landscape filled with vines, chestnut woods and beech forests.

The hikes take you over lands which inspired great Renaissance artists and poets and you'll follow sections of the Gothic Line, the last major German defensive line in the Italian campaign of WWII. 

Travelling towards the Adriatic coast the end to your Italian adventure is in the unrivaled UNESCO city of Ravenna, once the capital of the Western Roman Empire, and still home to some of the world's most dazzling Byzantine mosaics

Accommodation for the tour is in three lovely hotels:

  • Villa Campestri:  Family-owned, olive oil resort with pool,  excellent restaurant and views of rolling countryside
  • Locanda sul Senio:  Albergo diffuso, scattered hotel in beautiful Mugello village on the Senio river
  • Palazzo Bezzi:   Very comfortable 4-star hotel close to the historic centre of Ravenna

Gourmet meals will be in superb local restaurants, naturally featuring the local produce and you'll also enjoy fabulous tastings at wine and olive estates along the way. A private guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage sites of Ravenna is also included.

Tour dates are 13-20  May and 10-17 October 2018.
