Hooked on Walking designs and organises walking tours at popular destinations all over Europe, and our tours in Italy are certainly perennial favourites. Walking holidays in Italy lead through mountains, fertile valleys and stunning stretches of the Mediterranean coast—revealing the country’s fascinating historical and cultural heritage along the way.
Our Italy walking holidays are based in the following regions:
Italy has made so many grand contributions to the world. This is the epicentre of the Roman Empire; the birthplace of the Renaissance; and a purveyor of one of the world’s most celebrated cuisines. With so much to see and appreciate, it can be tempting to try and do too much in the course of holidays in Italy.
This is why seeing the country on foot can make such a difference. By selecting one of our walking tours and focusing on a specific region, you’ll experience Italy according to a more natural rhythm. In our fast-paced world, slow-touring is as much about experiencing the destination as it is about reconnecting with yourself.
Gastronomy and Walking Holidays in Italy
We’ve already mentioned the beautiful scenery and historic ruins that walkers enjoy while exploring Italy—but that’s only part of the adventure. The Italian countryside is also famous for its incredible cuisine. And nothing works up an appetite like rambling through the Italian countryside.
Each of the self-guided walking tours listed on this page have their particular charm and allure. We’ve painstakingly crafted each to ensure that it brings our clients into contact with as much of the local culture as possible. In Italy’s case, that certainly requires tasting the local food.
A few tours stand out in culinary terms. For example, the Chestnut and Wine Route package crosses through the South Tyrolean wine region, where wineries offering tastings and tours abound.
Likewise, true foodies will be thrilled by the Barolo Wine Trails package. Walkers pass through fertile lands that produce world-famous truffles along with some of the country’s finest wines. You’ll also find delectable cheeses, preserved meats, chocolates and refined pastries. After a day of trekking through the Piemonte region, you’ll know you’ve earned the right to indulge.
