Follow the paths along the shores of the Italian lakes and gaze across at the boats bobbing on the gently rippling waters, when hiking Italy’s iconic natural landscape. Walking holidays in Italy let you scale the literally breathtaking Dolomites, explore the medieval villages along the pilgrim routes of Tuscany, or saunter along the sparkling coastline of the Riviera Cinque Terre.
The widely used Italian phrase: “la dolce vita”, meaning “the beautiful life”, flawlessly encapsulates the heart and spirit of this country, and the passionate culture you can find here. What better way to put this to the test than exploring what Italy has to offer on foot? Allow yourself to be led off the well-worn tourist paths for an authentic, native experience, with our trustworthy guides.
Our tailored walking holiday itinerary will endeavour to make your experience magical – just the way it should be. Hike around Lake Como and after a long day rambling, unwind with a carafe of local wine over dinner at one of our fabulous hotels. In the evening, dine al fresco at a boisterous pizzeria filled to the brim with character, or at a conventional trattoria and converse with the locals. Free time will be scheduled into excursions, too, allowing you time to sample all kinds of Italian feasts, and explore any curiosities you discover along the way.
