The tour difficulty is primarily a subjective factor, determined by different elements and from never equal situations.
The most important of them is the effort: the more the climbs are high, the more effort is made.
But climbs are not all the same: they can be more or less steep and of variable length.
To get an idea of how many climbs are waiting for you on a tour, you should check the "elevation gain uphill". The higher the "elevation gain uphill" is the higher the number of climbs you have to face.
Another element that can make a tour more or less difficult is the climate and in particular - in summer time - the exposure to the sun.
Doing the same path in autumn or spring with 20/25 degrees is completely different if done in summer with 35 degrees.
In addition to the temperature, even the humidity, the presence of shade and the road surface can increase (even in the worst cases) the difficulty of 20%.
For this reason, there is no a unique answer to the question 'how difficult is a course' is; everybody has its own parameters and sensations that also depend on your training level, so the difficulty index is considered an indicative value.
To help you choosing a guided tour, in addition to the degree of difficulty, we ranked the tours according to the following parameters: Landscape, Nature, Art and History.
The trail winds through panoramic paths from which you can admire some of the most beautiful landscapes of the Tuscan countryside.
The tour takes place predominantly in wooded areas or crosses areas of important naturalistic interest such as parks or nature reserves.
Art and history
During the tour you will find places of great historical and artistic interest such as medieval villages, abbeys, churches and castles.
The Via Francigena is an ancient pilgrimage 1600 km long, connecting Canterbury to Rome. In the tenth century, pilgrims from every part of Europe walked this road to go to Rome to visit the tomb of the Apostle Peter, and then to continue to the Holy Land.
On this trip, retracing the same steps of the pilgrims on the Via Francigena, we will live a unique experience on a journey between history and faith in the silence and peace that only this land can give. Starting from Castelfiorentino, we will reach the Pieve di Coiano where we will take the Via Francigena. Once in Gambassi Terme we pass in front of the church of Santa Maria in Chianni then descend to the valley of the River Casciani. We will climb up to Pancole with its charming sanctuary and finally arrive in San Gimignano where we will make a brief stop in the shadow of its 16 towers to recuperate.
