Walking in Tuscany (challenging departure)

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

No one stand- out inspirational moment. Highlights included...... Seeing fireflies in the grounds at Braccicorti Visiting Lucca Reaching the top of Monte Cusna..just a 4 1/2 hour round trip according to Sara

What did you think of your group leader?

Sara (helped by Elvis & Dora) is an excellent leader. We had some pretty challenging weather during the week. She managed the group well to avoid the worst of it, whilst enabling us to make the most of each day. A brilliant organiser as well - train tickets, taxis, restaurants and driving the van...a master of all trades. Extra touches included snacks during the day, a cake waiting for our return one day and the occasional bottle of Prosecco, or two....

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Lucca is a good place to go on the free day. No need to bring a travel kettle, as hot drinks are available all the time in the lounge. The rooms have an adaptor for UK 3 pin plugs.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

The description of this challenging week is accurate. Anyone who walks regularly or goes on holiday to places like the Dales, Lakes or Scotland will have no problems. If you have been thinking of going to Garfagnana, stop thinking and just go!
