If you've any questions about this holiday call our sales team on 1-800-567-6286 , or email info@breakaway-adventures.com

On this self-guided ten-night walking holiday, you explore the timeless countryside between picturesque Volterra and the soaring towers of San Gimignano. You'll feel as though you're strolling through history as you discover sleepy hilltop hamlets crowning sun-dappled hills, verdant vineyards and panoramic picnic spots in fields ablaze with sunflowers. There's the option too to visit the eternal cities of Siena and Florence - Tuscan favourites right on your doorstep!

You start in Volterra, a real Etruscan gem with its tangle of alleys home to alabaster workshops and secret chapels, from where you walk through the verdant Berignone Forest and up to a fantastic panoramic ridge before a final climb to Casole d'Elsa. Your journey then takes you east to mediaeval Colle di Val d'Elsa, enjoying balcony views across the Elsa Valley. As you move towards stunning San Gimignano, the mediaeval 'Manhattan of Tuscany', the landscape is dominated by vines so there are plenty of wine tasting opportunities here!

Our carefully picked hotels, all with pools, are full of contrasts. From a recently renovated, elegant boutique hotel just outside the mediaeval town of Casole d'Elsa to the refined elegance of the 4-star Relais della Rovere in Colle di Val d'Elsa, a magnificently restored C12 abbey where you spend 4 nights, and which is an excellent base for day trips to the eternal cities of Siena and Florence. Chianti is synonymous with excellent food and wine and evening meals are a celebration of the local cuisine. Perhaps try pappardelle alla lepre (fresh ribbons of pasta with a hare sauce) or bruschetta (toasted bread rubbed with garlic and olive oil, topped with sun ripened tomatoes), all washed down by a glass or two of full-bodied Chianti!

Day-by-day itinerary



Walking information

The walking mainly follows reasonably flat strade bianche (white roads) with some asphalt lanes and partly shaded forest and valley trails. Walking boots and poles are recommended. Strade Bianche are mainly exposed, affording excellent views - a sunhat is essential.


Day 1 - Arrive in Volterra

We meet you at Pisa airport, and take you to your 4-star hotel (75 mins) just outside Volterra's mediaeval gates, where you have time to relax in the pool before dinner. (Staying at Park Hotel Le Fonti, Half Board)

Day 2 - Volterra to Casole d'Elsa 14km/9mi/4hr

A short transfer (30 mins) this morning to the start of your walk. Forest trails lead east through the Berignone Nature Reserve where you may be lucky enough to see wild boar, deer and fox. As you leave the forest, the ridge opens up giving wonderful valley views out towards Casole d'Elsa where you'll spend the next two nights. (Staying at Hotel Terre di Casole, Half Board)

Day 3 - At Casole d'Elsa

Casole d'Elsa is a picture perfect etruscan village atop a panoramic ridge. From the vermillion hued C14 castle, views stretch as far as Monte Amiata in the south of Tuscany. A leisurely lunch maybe in the mediaeval piazza, before visiting the small but intact amphitheatre and Etruscan tombs. (Staying at Hotel Terre di Casole, Half Board)

Day 4 - Casole d'Elsa to Colle di Val d'Elsa 19km/12mi/5hr

Today's walk takes you down to the valley floor passing fields of sunflowers and orchid-sprinkled paths, before coming to the small hamlet of Quartaia, a good lunch stop. Continue through the woods along the famous pilgrim's path, the Via Francigena, where the fossils in the stones beneath your feet bear witness to the time when this area was covered by the sea. A final easy stroll takes you along the milky-blue, limestone-rich river d'Elsa and to your stunning 4-star hotel, a beautifully converted C12 Benedictine Abbey with garden and pool. (Staying at Relais Della Rovere, Half Board)

Days 5 - 7 At Colle di Val d'Elsa

Regular buses to Siena (30mins) and Florence (1hr) leave from just outside the hotel grounds so you can easily explore Il Campo, the Duomo, and the treasures of the world-famous Uffizi. The historic town of Colle di Val d'Elsa dates back to Etruscan times with cathedral, museums and fine Renaissance buildings. Back at the hotel, you can relax in the pleasant gardens surrounding the sparkling outdoor pool. (Staying at Relais Della Rovere, 1st night half board, following days Breakfast only)

Day 8 - Colle di Val d'Elsa to San Gimignano 16km/10mi/4.5hr

Today you follow in pilgrims' footsteps along the Via Francigena. Bright with sunflowers and fragrant apple orchards, this historic path skirts tiny hamlets and lonely chapels towards the lazy Foci River. You may like to make a short detour to take in a wine tasting at Montauto, before retracing your steps to rejoin the Via Francigena up to san Gimignano. Time for a swim in the pool before dinner. (Staying at Relais Santa Chiara, Breakfast only)

Day 9 - At San Gimignano

Visit San Gimignano's mystical towers this morning built by warring neighbours in the C12 to outdo one another! Or for a longer day out, hop on a local bus to Siena (30 mins), a perfectly preserved mediaeval gem with a stunning striped C14 Gothic Cathedral and beautiful square. (Staying at Relais Santa Chiara, Breakfast only)

Day 10 - San Gimignano to Volterra 22km/14mi/6.5hr

A short taxi ride (10 mins) from your hotel takes you to the start of the walk at the Castelvecchio Nature Reserve. From here you follow a woodland trail dotted with rock roses and wild strawberry plants to reach a panoramic strada bianca, where hawks soar overhead. With open views across cypress studded ochre fields to monte Voltraio, you pass through sensano and Ulignano, historic hamlets with C16 villas. Perhaps picnic by the Era Valley before ascending an ancient mule track back to Volterra.(Staying at Park Hotel Le Fonti, Half Board)

Day 11 - Leave Volterra

Return home after breakfast.

See our Volterra to San Gimignano Walk for an 8-night version of this holiday.

Mrs McKenzie
07/11/2016

thoroughly enjoyed the walking-especially when following the river. Accomodation comfortable and staff in the hotels welcoming and friendly. We had really personable and informative couriers able to supply us with local information on the areas-they went the extra mile!


Mr Dent
26/09/2016

Really attractive area,great hotels.We interspersed some extra days for additional relaxation and chance to visit additional restaurants for dinner.Fonti was weakest for dinner but other 3 were all excellent. Terrific wine tasting and dining at San Gimiagno


Mr Ford
25/09/2016

We enjoyed this holiday but with the following proviso in comparison with the Footsteps of St Francis Umbria which we did last year there was much more hard surface and road walking particularly on the last day.

Our first and last Hotel San Limo was without doubt the poorest hotel that we have experienced on a Headwater holiday. there was no atmosphere in the restaurant the staff both at dinner and breakfast did not give a friendly or welcoming approach. We actually decided to eat out in ... read moreVolterra on the final night rather than eat at the hotel. The room we were given 403 was supposed to be a superior room it was the smallest of all the rooms we had and the only thing that could have made superior was that it had a small balcony.

Hotel Relias della Rovere whilst the food was excellent and the room good, the pool and the pool area was very poor, grass uncut and pool a little dated


Mrs Handley
18/09/2016

Challenging, enjoyable walking in a scenic setting.Easy access to visit Sienna, Florence and the small historical towns along the way a real bonus.


Mr Smith
20/07/2016

Stunning countryside and food. Best reps we've ever had.


Mrs Cox
10/07/2016

Wonderful hilltop towns and beautiful, diverse scenery. Good hotels and excellent food. Luke and Eleanor were lovely reps. Nothing was too much trouble. We found we needed to shorten the walks and they helped us work out a way to do this, yet ensuring we did the best parts of each one. They ensured we had a stress free holiday and overall we had a very relaxing and memorable time. Ten days was ideal. A holiday we would recommend.


Mr Clarke
15/06/2016

Luke & Eleanor the reps couldn't have been more helpful and made the holiday a special experience. Taking the extra days to allow for visits to Sienna and Florence added an extra dimension to the holiday and would thoroughly recommend doing this as an addition to visiting the hilltop towns.


Mr Creswell
30/09/2015

Wonderful scenery, good friendly hotels, tough walks but worth it! Mosquitoes, especially the new 'tiger mosquitoes' are a real problem it would seem even in September so take lots of insect repellent and a spray to do your room before bedtime. I covered my legs and sprayed my arms for walking when I realised this and that did the trick!


Mr McGregor
19/09/2015

Beautiful area but let down by inattention to detail.

Disappointing largely for small but cumulative reasons.


Mr Lawrence
18/09/2015

Relaxing yet active walking holiday - lovely locations and good back up if needed


Mrs Price
17/09/2015

This was one of our very best Headwater holidays. We liked the mix of walks and sight-seeing. We felt very well looked after.


Mr Kell
25/09/2014

Well organised and supported walking holiday assisted by friendly and knowledgeable staff. Fine food and accommodation.


Mr Larcombe
21/09/2014

We really enjoyed the holiday. Katie and Jim were very good representatives. There has been a problem with an outbreak of horse flies and so they went out of their way to suggest an alternative walk that avoided walking through woods. This was really appreciated. My only issue was the last walk between Casolare Le Terre Rosse and Park Hotel Le Fonti. I found this walk to be too long especially as the last couple of miles was up hill. Luckily it was a relatively cool day, if the sun had been out I don't think I would have been able to complete the walk.


Mrs Buckle
08/08/2014

Thank you for a wonderful holiday! We enjoyed the walking, the days off by the pool, the scenery, the swimming pools, the food and the wine immensely. All five of us, including the kids, had a fantastic time.


Mrs Osborne
02/08/2014

The holiday was very enjoyable, very well organised, and the reps went out of their way to be helpful.



As Headwater guests, we felt that we were being given particularly good treatment at each hotel.


Mr Beresford
12/10/2013

This was a well organised holiday with 4 excellent hotels with swimming pools, good food, 4 quite long days walking through interesting and varied terrain, and opportunities to explore Siena and Florence on the rest days. The reception staff at all the hotels were very helpful, providing local information including booking tickets for the Accademia/Uffizi in Florence. Excellent and knowledgeable support from Roger and Monika, the holiday reps - who were always there when needed.










Mr Gunn
30/09/2013

Lovely walks particular second and third ones. Wouldn't recommend extension to 10 nights as food at Rovere was very limited in choice.


Mrs Rouse
25/09/2013

An excellant Holiday company for all the local knowledge it incorporates. The reps were great.


Mrs Allen
21/08/2013

Roger and Monika had changed the routing of the first day's walk as a result of storm damage. We really enjoyed this walk as we felt it added more variety and more open views than the original route which would have meant more walking in less open woodland. The walk was shorter than the original but we felt this was a good idea as it broke us in more gently and meant we had more time to savour the landscape. We recommend you amend your notes to keep this new route and ditch the original. The las... read moret day's walk was lovely until we reached the agriturismo San Antonio junction; from then on until Restaurant Prato d'Era we were on quite a busy strada bianca with quite a lot of traffic (not just tractors) for a long time, followed by and another long walk on a tarmaced lane. We would have preferred more 'off-road' walking if it had been possible at this point without losing the views. All the other days were simply lovely, the views wonderful and the walking very much enjoyed.This is our fifth holiday with you and we have had some excellent reps but we must say Roger and Minika were outstanding and provided a personal, friendly and humerous service above and beyond what we could have expected.


Ms Merrick
15/08/2013

1. Make sure you get the details you need before you travel.

2. If travelling with friends, insist on separate invoicing if that is what you want. Keep insisting

3. Self guided holidays offer great flexibility and also require more effort. Guided holidays have the potential to give local knowledge.


Mrs McIntosh
13/08/2013

Four very varied walks, challenging in places given my fitness level (poor!) but all definitely do-able - and very, very rewarding - in fact, unforgettable. It was unseasonably hot (35-38 degrees) but we were able to stop for leisurely lunches on two of the walks. The weather meant we made full use of the pools a each hotel - just wonderful. Our room at the Terre Casole will go down as one of my favourite ever - wonderful terrace with a walk across the lawn to the pool. At the relais we were ... read moreupgraded to a superior room at no extra charge - just a most lovely room with a jacuzzi bath. As for the rest days ... with easily arranged trips into Florence, Sienna and San Gimignano - just wonderful, giving great lunch opportunities too.



This was a complete break from our daily lives. Whilst undoubtedly costly ( we had three extra nights) it was the main holiday we will take this year, the only holiday abroad and was just superb. I'm usually very attached to 'seaside' holidays but the landscape, countryside, towns and hotels all combine on this holiday to make iot a real experience to treasure


Mr Sillett
09/08/2013

A really lovely mix of hotels with excellent walking and sight seeing opportunities


Mrs Graham
03/07/2013

we really enjoyed the holiday-great way to visit these lovely hiiltop towns and cities of Tuscany


Mr Harrison

A wonderful holiday - very well thought through and organised with a perfect mix of great walking in beautiful countryside and opportunities for sightseeing in nearby cities.
