There's really no restiction, whatever feels comfortable for you. Whether that's a wheelie case or a rucksack, you won't be carrying it too far so don't worry!

If you are used to walking with trekking poles then you can take them with you, as you will probably find them useful, especially on the downhill. They are not essential though and the walk is manageable without them. It is mostly a personal preference but do remember to pack them as part of your main luggage to be stowed in the hold.

Yes, this trip is centre based so if you would prefer to take off any of the days, you're free to do your own thing. Obviously we hope you'll take advantage of all that is on offer, but it's still a holiday, not a forced march!

At Braccicorti, Mamma believes in producing authentic Tuscan cuisine that is simple, yet packed full of flavour. Using seasonal ingredients, such as the 16th Century staple grain Farro and the abundant sweet chestnut, delicious recipes are produced for you to enjoy. Although, traditionally, Italians believe in quality over quantity, Mamma also believes that when something is so good, there should be plenty to satisfy your healthy appetite and enjoys nothing more than seeing you enjoy her creations!
