Walking Holidays in Italy


Italy is an EU nation located in southern Europe and comprises the boot-shaped Italian peninsula and a number of islands including Sardinia and Sicily, the two largest islands in the Mediterranean. Italy also has two enclaves in the Vatican City and San Marino.

Italian cuisine is world renowned, known for its simplicity, flavour and for its regional diversity. Due to Italy’s history of city and regional states you do not have to travel too far before you reach an area with different specialities. Wine also plays an important part in Italian cuisine with famous wine appellations such as Barolo, Chianti and Valpolicella.

Due to the large size of the country, Italy offers many different walking environments to experience. Coastal areas have more than just the sea to enjoy. There are long beaches as well as high cliffs and small villages to explore. Italy has had many Maritime Republics in it’s past, such as Venice, Genoa, Pisa and Amalfi. Central Italy has a more rolling, undulating terrain. Here you can find field after field of vines growing grapes for the local wines as well Renaissance cities such as Florence and Siena. To the north of the country you have the mountains with the Alps and the majestic rocky spires of the Dolomites. The towns here are smaller looking after the skiers in the winter and the walkers in the summer.
