The Chianti trek with Luca was the best hike/trip I have ever had. Luca was excellent. He created an incredible hike and great scenary plus he kept us going even when we were tired and hot. It was challenging but we all made it and it felt great! I am going do another trek with Luca in the Italian Alps next year! He is wonderful. Thank you.
My husband and I absolutely loved this trip. The best part about the trip was that we saw no other tourists while on the trails. We definitely enjoyed taking in the Italian lifestyle: relaxed pace, wonderful food and wine, and gorgeous scenery. We thought the pace and distance was just right. Challenging enough, but not difficult to the point where it seemed impossible. The route took us through some very small towns, each with its own character and charm. We enjoyed walking through forests, hidden trails, and over mountains. The accommodations were all comfortable, clean, unique, and set in beautiful and convenient locations. The food was wonderful. The best lunch at a restaurant was in Lamole, at Ristoro di Lamole. Our packed lunches included enough food and we did not go hungry. Overall we loved our trip and it was extremely memorable. We would definitely recommend this trip to our friends.
