ITALY

 

Italy has a stunning range of walking destinations to suit all tastes and levels ranging from high Alpine treks to easy walks through vineyards. Italy has a very long Mediterranean coast and its main mountain chains are the Apennine Mountains forming the backbone along the length of the country and the Alps which form most of its northern boundary. We will be introducing further Italian walking holidays over the coming months.
