Italy is the perfect place for a gourmet walking holiday. Walk for several hours each day, absorbing the history and scenery, then reward yourself with the delicious food completely guilt free! Roam through the manicured hills with villas guarded by cypress trees and the walled hilltop towns of Tuscany. Discover the small, elegant fishing harbours with colourful boats and welcoming gelatos of Liguria and the five seaside villages clinging precariously to the cliffs on the Cinque Terre. Stroll the lakesides and romantic gardens of the Northern Italian Lakes which have for centuries inspired poets and artists with their majestic beauty. Delight in the architectural treasures, art and history in Florence. Stay in small, comfortable, often family-owned hotels in villages and towns with time to absorb the atmosphere. A return of one of our most popular walking tours with some new twists.
