You’ll find something for everyone when walking in Italy. Explore cliffside lemon groves and charming fishing villages along the glamorous Amalfi Coast. Or visit the Dolomites, where sheer mineral crags and formidable steeples tower above fresh spring meadows and cornflower blue lakes.
Italy is home to some of the richest history in the world. In Sicily, you'll see golden Arab domes and arches, mosaic treasures of the Byzantine Empire, and the mediaeval palaces of Norman Kings.
Trek to mediaeval stone villages along the pilgrim routes of Tuscany and sip Chianti in sweeping vineyards overlooking fields of radiant sunflowers. Meander down ancient tracks running alongside Mount Etna to crystalised gorges of lava, bellowing craters, and centuries-old Norman castles.
Passion runs through the veins of Italy; dramatic Riviera coastline, intense Mediterranean flavours, and the local’s voracious appetite for life.
Hear the roar of gladiators at the Colosseum or unearth volcanically preserved treasures in Pompeii. Then, discover Venice’s opulent mercantile history, embellished Italian Gothic architecture, and gondola jewelled winding canals.
Sample divine Italian food and wine along the way. Try fior di latte, a fresh mozzarella made from local cows along the Amalfi, or pick wild strawberries as you trek along an alpine paradise.
Our routes will suit walkers of all abilities, from a leisurely Roman Holiday to hikes across alpine Mont Blanc and the Dolomites. Whichever package suits you, you’ll be sure to trek some of the most photogenic spots on the planet.
Our tailored itineraries and expert leaders will take you away from the crowds to experience authentic Italy; centuries-old coastal paths, secret grottoes, meandering Venetian back-streets, and rock carved churches.
