Walking in Italy

Italy, the country of great food, wonderful culture and beautiful nature. With a Mediterranean climate Italy is an almost year-round destination.

What is walking in Italy like?

Italy is extremely varied, both in climate types and in landscapes and relief. As a result, there is some great walking for everyone, at any time of the year. The Mediterranean areas are great for a spring holiday, when you will be enchanted by a green, lush landscapes full of wildflowers. Also the autumn is ideal for walking in these areas with a warmer climate. Temperatures are cooler and the landscape is extra beautiful with all the autumn colours. In summer the higher and cooler mountain areas, such as the Italian Alps and the central Apennines offer summer walking.
