Slow & Soulful Walking Journeys in Tuscany With Retreat on Your Feet

Last updated on August 9th, 2021

Now that we’re nearly out of the woods, are you ready for a walk in the forest?  

 Imagine yourself in Italy; ambling across undulating hillsides, exploring ancient fortressed villages and tasting local delicacies. Retreat on your Feet offers slow-walking journeys, in small groups, through the cypress-dotted, sun-speckled, Tuscan countryside. The pace is languorous, the vistas are grand, and the interactions are memorable.  

 Walking outdoors stimulates the body and the mind. With time for reflection and exploring your creative impulses – through occasional timeouts for writing, art, or yoga – who knows what wonders you may uncover; about yourself, your spirit and soul? 

 Join seasoned pilgrim, author and artist Amit Janco, on an innovative and unforgettable, 12-day *pause/look/listen* walking odyssey along the legendary Via Francigena path. The Lucca-to-Siena itinerary includes a day trip to Leonardo da Vinci’s birthplace and museum… and a fair bit of gelato.  

 2022 dates: May 8-19 and June 5-16
