Butterfield & Robinson Umbria

Each region offers unique landscapes, incredible local cuisine and a rich history – all perfect for exploring on foot” Says Chris Mark, Director of Trip Planning at Butterfield & Robinson.

Corsica, Umbria and a new Self-Guided walk in Tuscany are the newest destinations being added to a roster of more than 25 worldwide walking trips with Butterfield & Robinson. The ongoing popularity of Europe and an increasing interest in luxury walking trips made the regions of Tuscany, Corsica and Umbria obvious choices to build on their other classic walks in Europe.

"People are coming home from our trips like Amalfi Coast Walking and Italian Lakes Walking and asking for more. We are certain that these new Butterfield & Robinson walking trips will exceed their expectations. Each region offers unique landscapes, incredible local cuisine and a rich history, all perfect for exploring on foot," Says Chris Mark, Director of Trip Planning at Butterfield & Robinson.

Corsica offers white cliffs, azure lagoons and ultramarine skies; this Mediterranean island has been a preferred retreat of celebrities since the 1950s. Not quite France and not Italy either, Corsica's jigsaw culture makes for fantastic meals and rustic elegance. Butterfield & Robinson's guides lead explorations of Corsica's many facets: Calvi's palm-shaded luxury, the Bronze-Age ruins of Cucuruzzu, the impenetrable Citadel of Bonifacio and the glamour and gourmet cuisine of Porto Vecchio. Tread ancient pathways along seaside donkey trails and medieval pathways that weave through hilltop towns, culminating each evening in luxury accommodation and Michelin starred meals.http://www.butterfield.com/Trips/Corsica_Walking.aspx

Butterfield & Robinson's Umbria Walking trip takes you to the "green heart" of Italy, where forested hills, medieval towns, vineyards and olive groves give neighboring Tuscany some tough competition! Stunning new hotels in the well-known towns of Assisi and Spello are a welcome respite after days of walking and sampling local wines, olives, truffle pasta and porchetta .

The Tuscany Self-Guided Walking trip is the newest addition to a series of Butterfield & Robinson Self-Guided trips which include biking or walking in Burgundy, as well as biking in Tuscany. Designed for the traveller who wants to be on their own schedule, this walking trip in Tuscany combines the hallmarks of any Butterfield & Robinson itinerary—excellent hotels and beautiful walking routes—with the freedom to set your own pace. Luggage is transferred and local information is provided to help craft the perfect trip. Browse the shops, walk an extra trail loop; have take-away pizza or a gourmet lunch; enjoy a walking tour of historic Cortona or relax in the piazza. With their Italian headquarters in nearby Arezzo, Butterfield & Robinson is available to share their support and insight into a region that they have been biking and walking in for more than 40 years .
