Woman alone in Tuscany
Although I'll be travelling with a coach company, I will be a lone traveller around Tuscany. I'll be going in October, I wonder if anyone could give me any tips and places to go and avoid please?

Places to visit in October
As a lone female traveller - I try not to let anything stop me from truly enjoying my surroundings and to be honest, Tuscany is a dream place to travel, even if on your own. Of course, follow some simple safety precautions but you should fee safe pretty much where ever you go.
There are many activities October that are excellent opportunities check out these two calendars:
*definitely check back on the calendars closer to your arrival because the exhibitions and shows change every year!!
Last year the organization That's Prato had some great tours (free! and in English) very friendly groups and there are also many hiking groups you could hook up with for a day, minimum cost (15€ or less) and many times they will help you organize transport (check out Sentieri in Toscana or Hike&Smile on FB)

Woman alone in Tuscnny
Hi Denise, thank you for the links, I'll browse through them all. I'm going on a coaching holiday 23 October for 7 days, one day in Rome and one in Florence, Pisa etc, so I hope to at least see some of the events you mentioned, I'm really looking forward to it. Thanks once again.
