Among 35 half-day and full-day walking tours of Tuscany in this set, you'll find Vinci, the land of Leonardo's youth; a hermitage built by St. Francis in the hills above Cortona; and Monte Argentario on the coast, which features a hike over the hill from Porto Ercole to Porto Santo Stefano. If you've ever tried hiking or bicycling through unfamiliar territory with one of those fat guidebooks in your bag—or worse, your pocket—you will immediately grasp the unique charm of these guides to some of the most beautiful places in the region. The tours are presented on individual laminated cards with color photos and maps, full descriptions and directions, points of interest, and charming local accommodations. The boxed set also includes a protective plastic sleeve to help keep your card clean and dry in the event of unexpected showers.
