Det skal I lave

With this experience I'd like to propose you something very different from the usual tourist routes.
A very relaxing hiking on the ancient roads of Settignano Hills of about 8 kilometers walking through a landscape that still offers a fabulous opportunity for a multi focus immersion in the countryside, changing with the rhythm of the seasons.
Here you can stop and observe the superb elegance of the city, down in the valley, whilevthe Arno river flows silently; or, following the contours of the olive groves, raise your eyes to ancient towers or to some old stone houses warmed by the sun and shaped by the wind.
Many more will be the surprises along the way, including the majestic Villa Gamberaia, or a small parish church with its cemetery and an old terra-cotta tabernacle where an old lady still regularly puts fresh flowers.
At the end I like to stop at the local Caroline's workshop of Settignano, a welcoming Atelier of careful and elegant taste to make wire jewelry. After that you can take the bus by yourself to go back to Florence.
Remember that this walk has a medium/easy difficulty. Even if we will walk really slowly you need to be able to walk 9 km with some climb and remember to put good walking shoes on!

My name is Filippo, I was born in Florence in 1976.
In 2001 I took a degree in History and since then I've been studying tourism in Spain, Wales and France.
Back in my hometown in 2009 I took the certification to become a professional tour guide in Tuscany and Florence with a special focus on the countryside of the region and therural area of Florence.
When I design my ideas I prefer to walk through the fascinating historical villages, Villas, following the fooft-prints of ancient paths and roads in a fabulous artistic and naturalistic context.
They proved to be intense and surprising experiences both for me and travellers ready to live something not to buy in any travel agency.
I want to share with you the beauty of the landscape of Toscana, the most important art-work for locals and travellers.

A very good way to fill your morning. No doubt you are wide awake after the climbs of the hills. Plus you're going home with nice tips on the area of Settignano.

The hike trough hills with Filippo was nice. It’s interesting to see the country side of Firenze. Filippo can tell a lot about it, and there are splendid views of the city. The serenity of the hills after the liveliness of Firenze is overwhelming.

Ho prenotato questa escursione perché mi é sembrato qualcosa di diverso rispetto alle opzioni che si trovano online e devo dire che sono rimasto piacevolmente colpito.Ringrazio Filippo per la Sua disponibilità e professionalità,per avermi fatto scoprire in poche ore un'altra parte della Città,quella meno conosciuta,ma ugualmente bella.Una passeggiata tranquilla,nel silenzio..dove ho imparato un altro po' di storia e allo stesso tempo ho potuto ammirare i colori delle colline toscane nel mese di agosto(anche se sono convinto che ogni mese dell'anno offre uno scenario diverso,ma sempre bello!!)Esperienza molto positiva che consiglio davvero a tutti!!Grazie ancora Filippo,ci rivedremo sicuramente.Gianni
