A Moonlit Promenade


Dare yourself to trust your senses in the unfamiliar setting of the deep silken blackness of a Tuscan night. Hiking in Tuscany is taken to a whole new level as you experience the unusual sensations of night trekking in the Italian countryside. Fortify yourself with a generous aperitivo and set off on a voyage of discovery, giving yourself over to the small distinct sounds and misty lingering smells of the forest. Test your body’s ability to react to new and disconcerting perceptions in this unfamiliar dimension of walking in the dark and be rewarded by a spectacular moonlight vista over one of Tuscany’s famous cities.

Between dusk and dawn

Walk in silence through the inky darkness of a Tuscan night, far from the glow of city lights.  Open yourself to the breathtaking sights and sounds of a trekking experience that compels you to embrace your environment in a completely new way.  Without visual points of reference, you slowly allow your hearing to take over, your footsteps become attuned to the paths you are walking and your body rhythm slows to accommodate your merging with the eery natural environment.  Discover the unique intimacy night time hiking affords you and your companions as your senses are enhanced by the dimmed natural light...

Be among the few visitors to discover the abundance of Tuscan wildlife.  Wild boar, roe deer, fallow deer, porcupines, hare and many more nocturnal animals flourish in the wild areas of the region and the best time to spot these elusive creatures is in the magical hours between dusk and dawn.  The darkness heightens your hearing and sharpens your eyesight as you listen for telltale shuffling, rustling sounds in the undergrowth and strain to see the majestic outline of a deer’s antlers or the compact wedge shape of a wild boar.  The excitement of witnessing these animals, wild and free in their natural habitat, is one of the unforgettable rewards of a nighttime trek in Tuscany.

The land under a black velvet sky

Darkness falls over your own personal corner of Tuscany’s wilderness as you embark on a moonlight hike tailored to your preferences.  The season and the weather will set the tone for your adventure as you chart a course deep into the countryside, following the natural rise and fall of the land under a black velvet sky.  The dips and curves of your path through shadowy fields and groves of olive trees with glinting platinum leaves will take you far from your familiar daytime routine and demand your total concentration...

Use the bewitching characteristics of the night to explore the areas you love during the day with a new perspective.  Nature’s architecture will impress you in a new way as you explore the tendrils of grapevines escaping the precision of ordered vineyards and appreciate the twists and turns of tree branches, undistracted by the emeralds of their leaves.  Walking through Tuscany at night changes your point of view, even as you come to rest at a striking vantage point, overlooking the twinkling lights of an old city spread at your feet like diamonds tipped onto a jeweller’s bòack suede table.

All your senses tingle as your eyes grow accustomed to the shades and tones of a landscape lit by the glow of a silvery moon and the twinkle of distant stars.  On a cloudy evening, you walk through a smudged charcoal countryside and find depth in subtle greys and browns, with dark green trees and vegetation adding form and reference.  Your hearing becomes alert to the tiny rustling sounds of nature’s creatures of the night and you listen for the swoop of bird wings and the high notes of predators calling through the darkness.  Experience the freedom of a still country night in the heart of Tuscany as you meld with dreamlike quality only darkness provides. You may be so reluctant to return to the world of artificial light that you choose to extend your night trekking experience with an intimate dinner awash with gentle candlelight to share all your perceptions of your experience with your companions before heading to bed and the dawn of a new day.
